Why doesn't anyone discuss the pain?
Byon 15 Feb 2012
None of the doctors I spoke with told me how excruciatingly painful the recovery is. Everyone talks about the 'mild discomfort' for the first 10 minutes of the procedure till you get numb. Yeah but guess what, when you get un-numb after 3 days, your nerves have gone haywire and are firing off at random. yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night howling in pain. It's non-stop stabbing with varying intensity and location. I honestly can't take it anymore. I want to curl up in my bed and never get out. NOTHING is helping!! all I've been doing all day at work is browsing the web for ppl with similar experiences and not surprisingly, have found plenty other ppl. I called up the spa and told them about my symptoms and they were very surprised (really???) and told me it's very unusual. They've prescribed what sounded like a nerve block, which I'll pick up on my way home from work. I am honestly never going to get this procedure EVER done again. agggggggggggggh
