I had a bone marrow biopsy at UNC yesterday, and it was so much better than the first one I had! I was terrified, because my first one was such a terrible experience. It felt like brutal attack compared to the one I had yesterday. I’m glad to know they don’t always have to be pure torture. I’m not saying it was a pleasant experience though! I don’t know anyone who has enjoyed a bmb. I did get up a little too soon, and that resulted in some bleeding, but they redressed the wound and I stayed down for about 1/2 hour. Everything was ok.
I’m just a bit sore today, but nothing like I was back in 2003. I’d swear that I’m still hurting from that first BMB!
