My most painful to date was tearing my ACL and miniscus around my knee. Well the initial injury wasn't terribly bad, but the EMT's I was working
with that day, said, "yep, definite ACL tear." Downhearted, I headed to the ER, where the Orthopedic specialist just happened to be on duty! Then
he proceeded to completely tear the ligament in his diagnosis. I couldn't starighten my leg out, and I hadn't heard the "pop" that's attributed
to an ACL tear until he tried straigtening my leg out. No meds, and I almost punched the M.F.er for suddenly ripping it.
Fast forward to surgery day, went under general for the surgery, and when they brought me out, all I remember is the nurse asking how do you f..., and
before she got "feel" out of her mouth I felt this deeeeep, and I mean deeep pain in my knee. Guess they forgot to give any kind of painkiller as I
was coming out. So, as I sit in my hospital room sobbing like a little kid, and pushing the trigger on the morphine pump every chance I could (it
was on a 30-minute timer) and then having a nurse come in everytime I pushed that button saying, sir, you can't press the button that often, it only
is delivered every 1/2 hour. I finally screamed at them, well give me a f-ing pill or something, cause I cannot bear this anymore, and I'll find
your family and skin them alive and pickle their eyeballs...
Then my doctor was kind enough to put me on baby aspirin because he was afraid of addiction to regular aspirin. Bring up that they make percoset,
vicodin, oxycontin, methadone, or any kind of painkiller and my visit would be over. I hated that man with a passion. He was the guy that tore my
acl, did the surgery and subsequent visits of denying me any kind of decent painkiller.
The best experience was one day he drained the fluid out of my knee (ewww) and had the little tiny needle to numb the area, then pulls out this needle
4 times as long as the other, crams the thing in my knee, sees me seize up and has the audacity to ask if that hurts and that flexing my muscles could
be detrimental. No Sh!t buddy. How bout I shove that horse needle in your eye and see if that hurts. I really should have punched him.
