Yeah I know that old doctors trick. When I had a brain aneurysm some years ago and couldn't eat for 8 months being fed through a tube straight into my stomach that same trick was played on me. When I was finally able to eat again I went to have the tube removed. I was told it was just like having a tooth pulled. Sounds ok ??? but there was no anaesthetic and I can't ever having a tooth pulled without pain killer. The doctor said she'd pull it on the count of 3 so brace myself .... she pulled it at 2 and I almost shot through the ceiling in pain when the tube and stopper holding it in was pulled from my gut.
