2. I did.

It was back in the early 90's. It was my big toenail on my left foot. I wasn't as lucky as you. The 3 injections they used to numb the toe hurt... a lot. Especially the way he bent the needle into the toe. He removed about a quarter of the nail and the toe was numb for a bit. The doctor wasn't a podiatrist just a GP.

They said to elevate the foot and take my antibiotics and tylenol for the pain...lol. That night I couldn't sleep at all from the pain and just laid in a recliner all night feeling miserable. I didn't have a phone at the time and in the morning I had to hobble about a block to a phone booth to call into work. On the way to the phone a cop was watching me. I think he thought I might have been drunk.

I don't remember much about it anymore. Those bad memories were replaced by my kidney's love for making stones. Having a stent removed from my urethra with what I imagine to have been a plumbers snake with a webcam duct taped to the end has forever been my #1 memory for pain.
