Around the turn of the century, I had a growth removed from inside what I shall gallantly called an exit hole in the lower part of my body. For two weeks, the everyday process of ejecting matter from said hole became an hour-long, little-by-little horror-show thanks to the wound created by the operation inside said hole. Painkillers made little difference. I imagine it's the nearest a man can come to the pain of childbirth.
