Pain really is a subjective thing.
We have guys on here who wanted general anesthesia for a biopsy.
Plus, each surgery is a little different, anatomys can be a little different, muscle tone is a little different. I have heard guys talk about
gas pain in their shoulders, swollen and black and blue testicles, rectal pain, etc, etc.
Just be assured it is very bearable. Usually simple analgesics can take care of it, or a Tylenol #3.
