    What’s the worst pain you’ve ever experienced medically?

    I’m just getting over a prolapsed disc that trapped my Sciatica nerve, so much pain, also a few years ago a freak accident that caused a wood splinter that embedded under my finger nail, I had to go to A&E in France to have it removed, the doctor said he thought he’d have to remove my nail as it proved difficult to get out. Also trapped wind after a major operation, very painful.

    Me, has to be ligament damage to my knee after a serious motorbike accident. Every ligament was shattered! Worst ever case the surgeon had seen! Most excruciating pain next to child birth ;-), but will never ever recover from this accident   :cry:

    Presently I have a arthritis in right hip, and in the last week I’ve got an excruciating pain down from my left hip,  right down to my foot! which may or may not be sciatica related! the doctor cannot make up her mind ! But walking or standing is dreadful and getting up stairs is very difficult. Waking up most mornings at 4.15 am  :cry:

    Having 4 kidney stones blocked in my urethra for close to three months was pretty bleedin painful. Luckily a catheter was fitted of course, but that wasn’t a walk in the park either.

    I tore a knee cartilage about 10 years ago (work accident) and it was agony. The problem was that I couldn’t find a position to ease the pain. The operation was done by keyhole surgery and took about 5 minutes to fix.

    Unsure if this really answers the question but here goes

    9 years ago my youngest son was very badly injured in an explosion in a house in Afghanistan. A daisy chain of bombs went off and he and his mates sustained horrendous injuries

    I was due to return from France the day  that it happened so was not informed until I returned to UK

    I travelled back to UK (as had not retired by this time and this was still my holiday home).It was only when I got back to the UK that I found out what had happened in that house in Afghan.

    I saw my son, I saw his mates who had survived, I held my other sons hand as he was the one who had helped organise the Medivac to Sellyoak.

    I have never known in all my life the pain of what was happening to my son- and what his brother was going through. The pain was my worst nightmare- every part of my body and mind and, well – everything was excrutiating for all of us.

    I remember the bravery of others who had been injured, parents, loved ones but the pain of sharing was unbelievable.

    I can remember every minute of every day and know I am a lucky mum as I have my two sons but never ever in my life will I everforget that pain

    I saw other lads who had been so very badly injured. My son had over 30 operations, I still cry, I still have panic attacks, I am still in pain over the memories- they do not go away and they do not lessen

    Regards

    Some nasty experiences of pain and suffering, not nice at all, but C’mum, there can’t be anything worse than that of ones child suffering, our thoughts are always for those that fight for our freedom. :heart:   God bless them and you as a parent, we often forget the suffering their families also endure.xxxx

    I don’t suppose the mental pain one goes through is wht this topic is all about ? Physical pain can often e relieved but what’s happening in the head is difficult to control at times…..

    I can only echo all that others have said C/Mum, emotional pain is the hardest to bear, especially when it involves our children. God bless you and your two boys.  :heart:

    Without wishing to detract anything from those sentiments, to reply to the post, my worst pain was shingles in my ear which paralysed my face. Totally pales into insignificance in comparison of course.

    I’ve had Shingles , Fruits, thought I had been bitten by an insect, so went to see  French doc who was very thorough, and ordered a shopping bag full of medication! Couldn’t even stand a sheet on my back, and the pain kept coming back for months after . I sympathise with your frozen face, my brother in law had it in his eyes , but luckerly didn’t loose his sight.

    Some nasty ailments haved been listed, torn ligaments and cartilage problems must be so painful and as you say Buddylux, sometimes never really heal fully, shingles also can be painful, they do offer a vaccine in the UK for anyone over seventy yrs old for the prevention of this virus. Do they have it in France? I would think so. :unsure:

    In the light of CM’s anguish, this seems trivial.
    In traction for 45 days, steel screw through my shinbone, supporting the traction weights was removed by a Doc with a small socket wrench. Just unscrewed bit by bit. No drugs needed he said. I had my pillow in my mouth and I still sweat thinking of it.
    But that pain was transient CM.
    Your memory and vision of your son in pain is there every hour of your life.
    Tell your son we salute him.

    BE, Slightly off topic but your zipper cartoon reminded me of an entry in the works accident book may years ago. I was the first aider and glad I did not attend to the incident in question.

    An employee using an air powered nail gun managed to attach his todger as you put it, through a length of tongue and groove and into the work bench.  The Amulance came and they called the Fire Brigade to free him.

    I still have tears in my eyes as I type.

    CAWAS, that sounds horrendous, I can’t imagine what position he was in while using  the nail gun to end up attaching  his todger to the wood!

    C’Mum hope your son has recovered from his physical injuries though I know the mental illness takes a lot longer. My parents lost a very good friend who was a helicopter pilot and he was shot down in Afghanistan at the very beginning of the conflict there.

    For me there are several very painful moments – in 2008 losing my Dad due to negligence when he was admitted to hospital with pneumonia.

    2015 when my Mum died in the same hospital again due to negligence ( Coroners court agreed but nothing was done)

    For me personally when I broke my leg in 2017 – slipped and my foot slammed into the wall. Have no idea how I stood up but when I put my foot down heard this horrible crunching sound and the pain was enormous though had to hop to get to the phone in the kitchen – think it was pure adrenaline.

    Have had other painful moments – tripped over a big water bottle the pups were playing with and tore all the tendons in my shoulder but had to drive to Rennes to pick up my Mum from the airport before I could go to the Dr/ hospital – ouch .

    When a sheep head butted me when I bent down to pick up my crook and my dog just kept pushing the sheep on and my nose was broken – never did that again so learnt a valable lesson !!!!!

    Just remembered this one! Whilst working at Ferrybridge “C” power station I was sampling the water around the cooling towers. These are joined together by large concrete culverts. I crossed over a culvert using a steep steel footbridge but when I stepped onto the ground some total pillock had left a length of wood from a smashed up wooden pallet. Sticking up was a 4″ nail which promptly went straight through my shoe and foot. I couldn’t pull it off nor could I get back over the bridge because of this “ski” stuck to my foot. So I had to walk a very circuitous route back to the station and first aid room. The duty first aider virtually wet himself laughing when he saw my predicament and got the other full time first aiders to have a look before they yanked it off! Modern safety shoes now have steel inserts to stop this type of injury.
