They might give you a local so you won’t feel it.  Just don’t look!  Honestly if it was terrible, they wouldn’t keep you awake for it!

Good luck!!

I’ve never been through this… I’m sorry you have to go through it, but I’m sure they’ll use a powerful local anesthetic (?sp) and you won’t feel a thing. Just don’t look at it, you’ll be fine!

I know someone who had surgery on her feet with just local.  She was encourage to bring an ipod to listen to (there was drilling).

I doubt they would do anything that would cause a lot of pain.  Just bring something to distract yourself and someone for support.

Aw your poor hand! I x-ray people’s pins all the time and I always feel so bad when I see them sticking out of hands and feet. Deep down it creeps me out. At least the removal was quick.
