Very annoying on the scalp so I guess I will put up with it!! I broke my nose, septum, medial orbital wall, and had a concussion. Even if the surgery did do any damage, it would probably be only a superficial numbing. The glass sometimes comes in clusters in one spot so when I take some of the glass out I can still feel more pieces in the same spot. And, thank you so much for sharing your issues with this nightmare that I wish that I could just wake up from! I worked 3 more hours. Unfortunately I had no incident happen that I could recall glass to my head. The tenderness from a fresh laceration is usually a bit more dull.
A very small amount of very intuitive experimenting showed that they can be squeezed out like acne, although more carefully, and that all there is to it is squeezing them from the directions where they are flat, not from the directions where they are sharp, and that it's very easy to figure out which is which.
