    Bone Marrow Biopsy Update

    Had the the procedure done this morning. DH and I left the house at around 8:30 and were back home by about 10;15 - the blessing of living a mile from your treatment center and getting cabs right away. I was pretty numb, put the pressure was very noticeable. The procedure is doing by going through the bone in the tush area, felt pain bellow the entry point just bellow the area of the biopsy - two Tylenol helped and it is now receding. I Hope to have results by Thursday. Oh and that let DH stay and hold my had through out the procedure which was really nice. This is the first time he was able to be with me while having tests done.

      Good! Sounds like it went OK then. Try to relax over the weekend & keep the Percocet flowing if necessary! No need to be hurting. I will be thinking of you! :-)

      Glad the procedure wasn't as scary as you feared. Good thoughts coming your way for good results on that biopsy! Take it easy for a few days. Kick those feet up and try to relax. Might be easier said than done w/a hole in your tush. : )

      Praying for the graces you need. Hate the waiting. So happy you had company to make the process just a little easier.
      I can't imagine having to travel by cab for treatment, or more so, home after treatment when I just wanted to stay sleepy and comfy.

      Hoping for good results for you. And thank you for sharing. Your personal touch is helpful to so many here.

      It's nice how some treatment centers/pysician's practices are becoming more humane....calling with results right away, allowing a loved one to accompany you when possible, etc. I would think humanizing medicine is not a big cost factor tto he practitioner, and it makes so much sense. Makes me wonder when we lost our good sense.
