Sounds very encouraging. Did they use Valium and lidocaine for the pain management? Thank you for your response. Much appreciated.

For the SpaceOAR and Carbon Fidicial Marker procedure that was done at Mayo Phoenix last week. There was zero pain and to my knowledge, I experienced no bleeding. I was placed under anesthesia (was asleep) for the procedure. All went very smoothly and I was back home feeling fine within a couple of hours. The entire procedure, I am told, took about 20 minutes. I was in the recovery room, waking up, for about an hour. Again, I felt no pain, had no bleeding and the only after effect that I experienced was a slight feeling of “fullness” for a day or two after the procedure. That slight “fullness” feeling has since gone away.
