Actually the Lidocaine hurt some mostly on the palm end of the cut.
What hurt way more was the stitching.
My body for some reason does not 'freeze' quickly. After two full syringes full of lidocaine I could still feel a fair amount, much to the surprize of the Dr.
The doc couldn't put in any more freezing as all lidocaine already in was swelling the area of the cut so much as to making it difficult to stitch the cut cleanly and neatly.
About an hour after I left the ER the area and half of my hand was completely numb.
