    I had that done about five years ago, except it was on the upper lid. The worst part was the swelling from the local anesthetic. Some surgeons don't like to use too much, since it can cause some swelling afterwords. You must have chosen a sadist for a surgeon. What helped me was that the surgeon knew I was a shooter and had a twisted sense of revenge, or at least led him to believe so. We were also personal friends at the time, and still are, so it couldn't have been that bad. My biopsy came back benign.

    I have had cataracks removed painlessly and can't imagine why the doctor couldn't have given you something more efficient for the pain. Sorry.

    I always thought that I could handle pain well also. That is, till I was out in the woods hunting a few years back, when the pain hit me. You know the "gotta go now" pain.

    Being in a hurry to get em down, I failed to look around me to see what kind of situation I might be getting into.

    Upon finishing, a bear trap that was previously un-noticed by me, as it was covered by leaves, was sprung and the jaws clamped down on the object closest to it. Ya can probably imagine what that was. If ya have ever heard the saying about having "your nu_s in a wringer, ya can imagine the pain that I was in. Lemme tell ya, it was terrible, didn't know what I was gonna do.

    Butttttttt, that's not the WORST pain I ever had to endure. Nope, not at all. When I hit the end of the chain that the trap was tied to, now lemme tell ya somethin, that was PAINNNNNN for sure.

    I have to think you had the wrong Dr. Dude. I had a Basel Cell Carcinoma taken off the lower eyelid some years back and while the view was disconcerting, I had no pain until the expected ache long after the happy juice wore off. I may have been very lucky that my skin doc sent me to a plastic surgeon in this case, which the ins. company didn't like at all. I feel for your problem though!....Bob Dodd

    SORRY SIR ,

    BUT you still don't REALLY KNOW PAIN ! ! !

    I Understand that you THINK you know PAIN .

    When you try to climb a wall backwards ; when you try to stand on you head and use your arms to do push-ups so that the ache in your head will exceed the agony in your rear-waist and when you try to bend backwards so far that the ache of compression of those (previously mentioned) rear-waist muscles exceed the rapier's pin-point-precisely located mind-blanching , vocal cord numbing-sound suppressing slash passes through (if you are lucky enough to have made it to the ER and gotten DEMEROL , LORTAB , IM-morphine or something your guardian saint has squirreled away for you 'cause she's been with you before - - -

    When you become eligible to be a wearer of the "Purple Sandspur" - - - 'cause that's what a kidney-stone looks like - - - then I'll agree that you do indeed "KNOW PAIN" .

    Ask members of "Zorro's ZERO'S" - - - (cracked-chests by-pass survivors when the drain tube is removed)if they happen to be members of both fraternaties ; if they have to do ONE OVER - - - WHICH ?

    STRONG SUGGESTION :
    IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE SUSEPTIBLE TO A KIDKEY STONE --- get an RX for allopurinol and camp at the foot of the cross .

    Charlie
