Not at all! Idk if he cut nerves, or if my adrenaline was pumping that much, but I didn't feel any pain.
I guess if you are sure your dying, you forget about everything except the things that matter the most. The 5 or so minutes i spent waiting on the ambulance seemed like an eternity though.
I didn't call any of my family members until after surgery. I didn't want them rushing 5hrs and to see when the inevitable was going to happen regardless. However, I did let the surgeon know to tell them I love em before I went under.
