Even doc­tors squirm at the thought of these pro­ce­dures

If we’re lucky, a bunch of nee­dles, bloody tooth ex­trac­tions, and tuli are the nas­ti­est med­i­cal pro­ce­dures we’d have to deal with in our life­time. But if you do need some spe­cial help, then you’d bet­ter man up fast be­cause in a rank­ing of pro­ce­dures that make us go “nope,” those three are the sur­gi­cal equiv­a­lents of rip­ping off a band-aid.

Here are other pro­ce­dures that are NOT the equiv­a­lent of rip­ping off a band-aid. Of­ten, your doc­tor will ex­plain these op­er­a­tions to you in their most per­fect bed­side man­ner so that you won’t con­tem­plate just end­ing it.

But we’d rather you get scared so that you’d care about your health in the first place. In or­der to do that, we spoke to a cou­ple of med­i­cal stu­dents for a no-fil­ter re­sponse (right now, they can still do that). Grab your an­kles, this is gonna hurt.
