    well, what about this?

    In Turkey most of the male kids gets circumcised. And the best part is they only use local anesthetics.

    I could make a million dealing coke at hospitals in Helsinki!

    And having just gone through a root canal and a couple months ago a kidney stone and kidney infection.... Yippee for percocet, demerol, morphine, lortab, and so forth.

    To the OP, where are you at in China? We got good dental in Hong Kong. I'll be in China in a month, wanna fight?*

    Hey, I just moved to shanghai so that's where I am right now.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not generalizing any kind of doctors or dentists etc.
    Actually I came across really good doctors before, real good ones.

    As for the "fight" well If you mean an mma fight kind of thing, I better pass that offer, I dont really feel like there is a reason or need to fight with you seriously.(WTF by the way, why should I fight with someone for no reason,especially if he is trained which almost ensures all kinds of bruises etc.)

    If you wanna train, well anytime you want, I train BJJ at hero spirit at shanghai (you can find it on web) the classes are on mon-thu-fri at 7:30 and sat at 12:30

    Just pm me anytime you want and we can meet in the gym and roll and stuff.

    I think you misunderstand.

    There is a difference between having an ingrown toenail that you can trim a little at home and suck it up; and a septic foot that requires medical attention. It started like yours. I tried to handle it myself for about seven months, and when I couldn't even walk on it any more, I was forced to see a doctor. My entire foot was septic and I was in danger of losing my big toe completely.

    My podiatrist simply said, "If this doesn't come out, you are going to lose your toe." Then he grabbed the pliers and tore it out at the root. No lie. This foot was already so painful I could hardly walk on it, and touching it could get you killed by me it was so tender. He grabbed the toenial with pliers and pried it up and out.

    I have dealt with broken bones, second degree burns, concussions, sprains, dislocations, and all the other fun things an amateur fighter gets to enjoy, and this was by far the worst.

    Sir ,what you are describing is a minor nuisance, not even worthy of retelling!
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

Topical anestetics don't work at all on me, and the 'caines' (benzocain, lidocaine, etc) actually cause an adverse reaction that causes the pain to become worse...imagine my surprise the first time I tried to use orajel. heh. I can't be "twilighted", and I wake up during surgery. A doc once explained that my body just does an incredibly efficient job of overcoming anesthesia. I'm usually completely clear of it in 15 minutes.

    If I were a super hero, I'd be "Emo Man", because nothing can freaking stop my pain. heh

    I've had cataract surgery, a vasectomy, colonoscopies (a big tube up the butt), a gastroscopy (a tube down the throat--not the same tube!), stitches, and strabismus surgery--that's where they correct a crossed eye by going in behind your eyeball, cutting the muscle, and reattaching it in a slightly different position. In every case, I either was completely awake (unable to be twilighted) or woke up from general anesthesia in the middle of the surgery.

    None of those things compare to the sheer hell of a root canal without anesthesia. Trust me on this one.
    I had this issue for a long time. I couldn't understand why every time I went to the dentist the anesthesia wouldn't ever work for me. They would just shoot me up with several needles and I would just feel everything, it sucked.

    Then I went to a really good dentist. He explained that it wasn't that the Novocain couldn't work on me, it was that my adrenalin was getting so worked up because of my fear of dentists and that the Novocain "never worked" that it would over-ride the effects of the Novocain making the Novocain ineffective.

    So... he gave me some anti-anxiety meds to pop about 30 minutes prior to me seeing him. I brought some pink floyd music on my phone, put the headset on, he shot me up with the Novocain and it was like nothing was going on in my mouth at all.

    No ****, next time prior to getting your teeth worked on, ask for some anti-anxiety meds. This changed everything for me and now I see a dentist on an annual basis and have no qualms about getting my teeth worked on. It use to be one of my biggest phobias because just like you I felt everything. I hope this helps.

    Thanks..but I don't think it's an adrenaline issue. I don't really get nervous or worked up before any medical procedure.

    I have absolutely no phobia about dentists...and I don't have any kind of phobia about pain either. I've developed a pretty high pain tolerance over the years, and I just grudgingly accept that any kind of procedure will come with some kind of pain.

    Most docs just think I'm bucking for more pain meds when I say I'm anesthesia resistant. I always have to explain that no, I don't really need any more pain meds..just keep in mind that anesthesia will only work on me for a very short while and to try to not dawdle.

    When I had my cataract surgery, they gave me two shots into the eye that were supposed to bring on akinesia (complete eye immobility) for six hours. Halfway through the surgery (which only lasted 15 minues) I regained sensation in my eye. Afterwards when the doctor went to put the gauze dressing and shield on my eye, I freaked her the hell out by blinking out of reflex.

    She called the anesthesiologist over and said "He blinked! He's not supposed to be able to do that for six hours!" and the anesthesiologist shrugged and said "Well, he said he was anesthesia resistant. What do you expect?" So, instead of wearing the eye shield for 6 hours, they told me to only wear it for 90 minutes.

    Just a weird biological quirk I have to live with.

    For some reason this reminded me of the new drug where they crossed Valium with Viagra. If you don't get a **** you don't give a ****.
