Heard that too, but have yet to see proof of it.
Hmm. Not sure I want to. I would rather believe it's an exaggeration. It's a believable claim to me though, because testicle injuries are a different pain to any other I've had.
I had my forehead then lip stitched one time. The Novocain or whatever missed the nerve so the wrong part of my face was frozen. He offered to put more in. I was already sore and just wanted the last thing finished so I said, "No, give me a moment... Ok I'm ready, stitch it up." It was weird because the needle hurt going through but the string like part felt funny being pulled through.
Probably the most intense pain I have personally had was back problems, followed by an ear infection. But even a fairly mild tap in the nuts has disabled me briefly. Fortunately they have all been mild in my case. Thing is I can't help but think a hard blow would logically be worse. I sort of can't imagine it getting worse.
They certainly are a strange and wonderful thing.
