Let the tears flow, nurses are very caring and they understand you need mental comfort as well as relief of physical pain. Let out the tears and you will feel better.
I speak from experience, much experience. So trust me on this, give up trying to act like it is okay and let someone comfort you. do you thing you can do that? It does not make you a weak person , it makes you a human person.
Bless you and gentle hugs.
