Open chest biopsy - Asia

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Posted on October 19, 2011 View this journey (8 Experiences)

Preferred incision on chest instead of the neck to obtain a biopsy of the tumor in my chest. The surgery went well but it was very painful for approximately a week and a half to two weeks. (Bruising, swelling, pain...lots of discomfort).

Went as Expected: Agree
Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
