@margot69 – Please try to remember and understand that until you have these biopsies, you do not really know if you have cancer. I can understand how anxious you are as I have been through all of this myself. As I told you before, I had 2 lung biopsies, one liver biopsy and one vertebrae biopsy. None are very painful although my vertebrae was sore for weeks. You will not be knocked out for the lung biopsy because you need to breathe properly. They completely numb the area, do the biopsy which is very fast while looking at your scan on the screen next to you, and then give you a shot through your IV for pain. If you need more, they will give you more. The liver biopsy is pretty easy, again you will be numbed, feel pressure and hear the tool pop to get the biopsy and it is over. None were a big deal to me. I guess once you have been through labor nothing is as bad! You will never have to worry about nudity issues….you will always have on a hospital gown and blankets. The lung biopsy is done through your back. The liver biopsy is done in the front but you are completely covered except for the tiny area being biopsied. Take some deep breaths and try not to worry …..easy for me to say but hey, I been terminal for over 4 years!! Hope you got home safe and will sleep well in your own bed tonight!
