I had to go to the dermatologist for a (long overdue) check-up last week, and there was an area on my back that she wanted to freeze with liquid nitrogen. "It'll only take a few seconds," she said. "You'll feel a sensation of cold, and that's about it." And she got to work.
Things it felt like:
- Being stung by a million tiny bees in a very concentrated spot.
- Being shot at point-blank range with the world's smallest buckshot.
- Being stabbed with teeny-tiny little-bitty knives, a whole bunch of them, all at once.
Things it did NOT feel like:
-"A sensation of cold".
