I can't speak for my wife, but I know giving birth is a drawn out grueling process. Maybe it would be better to compare it to breaking your leg VERY slowly.
it's a tough question. I've only broken one bone, and it was a little one..
giving birth (unmedicated) is very intense pain to the exclusion of all other thought!
but it's over pretty quickly.. and much more rewarding than breaking a bone.. plus
there's the whole "I meant to do this" factor..
but.. I remember how much delivery hurts (labor isn't much fun.. after is sore.. but actual
delivery.. that hurts.) and I don't remember how much that broken bone hurt.. just that it did.
but.. as I said.. it was a little bone.
I'd compare setting those broken bones (if they were displaced) with no meds to giving
birth with no meds. other than that bit of intensity.. the last stage of labor and delivery
compared to the bone setting.. broken bones of the sort you have probably hurt more..
and longer. and you don't get that rush of euphoria or that cute baby after.. all you got
to look forward to is when the cast comes off and you can finally scratch. heh.
