    if I remember correctly, it hurt getting the stiches out as well. not just uncomfortable, pretty ouchy really. very strange having things done so close to your eyes. rather sensitive area for everyone I would think. maybe a second opinion would be wise, from an optometrist, rather than a gp. ?? just a thought.

    Hi ladies. Firstly, thank you to all of you

    I went today with df. I didn't end up having it done. I just couldn't do it. While laying down I couldn't get my legs to stop shaking and when my doctor said he was going to get the needle ready I started crying. He said he couldn't do it as I was too distressed and didn't want to upset me any further.

    Turns out, even after 2 decades, I can't handle a local. Well, the idea of a local. Stupid doctor from then!

    My doctor has said it would be best to have a specialist do it and have a general anesthetic. Or, just leave it. I'm going to have a think about it but I'm leaning (very heavily) to the just leave it side.

    So yes. Big anti climax, for me at least.

    Thanks again

    My DD needed a tumour removed from near her eye area and it was done by a Paediatric Specialist (Plastic Surgeon) and done under a general, and it healed remarkably well.

    In your case though, what is it, is it Milia? If it were milia or spider naevi or harmless cysts or something like that and not bothering me a such, I would leave it be, especially if you suffer anxiety etc.

    I know exactly how you feel. I had a terrible experience with an endoscopy in 2012, where they tore the mucosa all down my oesophagus, which caused bleeding and swelling and I woke up with a bed covered in blood and was in agony and couldn't swallow for 5 days - endos are usually very safe so it was a surprise for everyone.

    I had to go and have another one last month and was utterly terrified, I told the doctors and they made extra sure to be very careful and used a child's tube. It went so much better than the first time, no complications, the doctors took my history on board and were very understanding and compassionate even though I went a bit nuts after they put me under -lots of screaming and crying (they gave me more meds to knock me out completely).

    I don't see why they wouldn't give you extra local just to be sure. Good luck!

    Sorry, I just read this after I replied. If it isn't needed, then I wouldn't bother - it sounds like it isn't worth the stress it will cause you.

    I don't like local injections either! I know they only hurt for a bit but damn it's painful for that short time. If it's not an issue then leave it. I've got a couple of moles that aren't bad but I'd like to get rid of but the thought of a local puts me off.

    Oh my, I seem like a wimp compared to others!

    It's hard to explain as I've never had this type of reaction before.

    Just in the few hours since my last post I'm feeling much better with my decision to just leave it. No stress, nerves it feeling ill.

    Thanks again lovelies

    I once had a piece of glass stuck in my eyeball which had to be removed (obviously!) I absolutely freakin **** myself!!

    I had to be pinned down to have it removed. Horrid experience where it had to be needled out of my eye but it was over quick enough and it was a relief to just get it over and done with. Glad you're happy with your decision OP. Not a nice procedure.
