More Core

Dr Brad called today and let me know that the Cardiothoracic Dr dude decided it would be better to do just a core sample of the mass, rather than send in the camera and whatever else they were thinking of.
I can’t say I am looking forward to it. I am hoping they give me some kind of sedative this time. There is something about someone pushing a long needle into my chest I have come to not enjoy.

If it is any thing like the bone marrow biopsy, i would be demanding the sedative.

Yep, I think so Sharon. I have had three bone marrow biopsies in my pelvis, two were with sedative, and of the three aspirates in or around my sternum, I haven’t had any sedation.
After much reflection and comparison, I will happily take whatever they have on offer.
