    Four retinal retinal reattachment surgeries, and I was awake. I felt it,smelled it, and it was not good. Been 20 years and it’s like it was yesterday.

    My wife had to get a root canal when she was pregnant. They had to use different anesthesia so the baby would not be affected (Novocaine when pregnant is not a good idea - or at least they told us). Root canal after sever pain (which always starts on a Sunday when nobody is open) followed by a three day hangover from the anesthesia, and being pregnant.

    I'm not saying she had it better or worse than anybody else - just a bad situation.

    I've had a root canal and don't remember it. I cut my left index finger off 11 years ago and remember it like yesterday, so I'm going to go with that.

    I’ve had retina reattachment surgery in both eyes. Right eye has a Scleral buckle and the left eye was a vitrectomy. The scleral buckle was the worst. Root canals are easy in comparison.

    I had my root canal at age 15 (same front tooth and same age as my Dad) in 1970. No issues ever since. A couple of dry sockets after wisdom teeth pulled is way worse and that was the same year. I could list a dozen things easily that are worse than a root canal and they don't even touch the harshness that some of you already mentioned.

    NAM in '65 ... holy s**t.:eek:

    I had a root canal when a tooth that had rotted hollow (which I never even noticed) cracked in two. It took several visits, but it wasn't all that painful. Going to the emergency room for a dislocated shoulder and having it popped back in without anaesthetic (after several unsuccessful attempts) was worse. Especially the sounds...

    Great line out of 'Same Time Next Year'. It's the groovy 60's and Alan Alda talking about how he's now got a woman Dr. She's giving him 'the finger' and she says 'I sense you're tense - is it because I'm a woman?'

    He says, 'I get tense whenever anyone does that to me!'

    Spontaneous pneumo thorax. (collapsed lung)...I threw a rock and the whip of it supposedly pushed a spot on my lung and it wrinkled up the size of a hand or so. Don't let anybody kid you...your organs are all in there just right...a vacancy of one of your lungs really hurts.

    I always laugh at guys in movies who run away after an obvious punctured lung...

    Tex...hope the tooth is fine!

    Thinking about it, but spending a lifetime trying to forget, was having my totally destroyed nose reset. Gave the other guy a concussion though (during a football game). Placekickers only have a single faceguard.:oops:

    The guy is geeking out on the minutiae of a '58 FLYING V.
    Around here, people geek out on a '74 Tele router hump or stuffing modern caps into old Astron tubes.
    Or search out the right sticky paper to put on their bridge cover.
    OK...maybe that was un-called for, but...
    Those who live in nitro-covered houses shouldn't throw acetone.
