It has been almost a week since my bone marrow biopsy and aspiration. As I remembered, it was terribly painful. Luckily for me, my friend came with me and held my hand during the procedure. Also luckily, I did not scream or cry like I did the last 3 times. But I tell ya, it is PAINFUL. Like the last time, I received some local numbing at the site, but that’s about it. The doctor said the sometimes they give ativan, but by the time it kicked in, it would be time to leave anyhow. Um..anti-anxiety drugs? I’m not anxious…it’s f***ing painful..!!! LOL.
