Rate Your Pain...

My good friend Matt is getting his hip surgically repaired. It is a pretty gruesome process. His wife wrote on their blog today...

The nurses often ask Matt to rate his pain on a scale of 1-10. I think he's rating his pain too low. He said a ten on his scale would be for someone to rip his femur out of its socket and beat him with it.

Oh Matty. Made me think of this...


  1. I thought the exact same thing and emailed this to him as well!

    Say 8, say 8...!

  2. I think 8 on the Metric scale is like 45 on the normal one. You Canadians have a much higher pain threshold than we do.
