french expression

Today at work, after a rather difficult interview with a new patient, my colleague said;
"Ah, celui-la, il a fallut vraiment lui tirer les vers du nez!"
Or at least that is what it sounded like, and we were far too busy for me to question her....so, can anyone tell me what she actually said, because I am left with an image of a nose full of earthworms, which is not a pretty sight! And maybe where the phrase comes from?

Grand merci!
