My DH was very uncomfortable. The doc let me watch the whole procedure, and it was pretty vicious, lol. Even with the local anesthetic, DH was grimacing, gripping the table, etc. His doctor also didn't prescribe pain meds until one of his stitches burst the next day.
He doesn't regret it, but just based on what he told me, the whole ordeal was a LOT more painful than he expected.
