My Open Muscle Biopsy Experience — 7 Comments

  1. I'm glad to read that it is done now. It's good that the time together gave you a chance to bond with your Doctor. That must help a lot.

    When my eldest son was ill we kept a careful record of everything and it did make life easier as we saw different specialists. It is amazing how much you forget.

    I hope that you and your family have a lovely Christmas. Let's hope that 2012 is the year that a proper treatment can be sorted out for you.

    I'll be thinking of you

  2. sometimes after a biopsy they still do not know or have answers. That happened to me. i have a website //www.missyleone.com…i have a post about my muscle biopsy. take a look..:) this is so nice to know of others who may have the same.

  3. I suddenly thought of something. A while back we were 'chatting' about pine borers and I seem to remember that you had to have your home at the time treated against them.

    Could some of your health problems be related to the chemicals used for that?

  4. It's certainly possible but who knows, Anji. But that was so many years ago I don't even remember what company we used to do the fumigating. They did a complete toxic chemical screening when they initially diagnosed me with Parkinson's and there were no heavy metals in my system.

  5. What a horror story. However, the fact that they took an open biopsy is good. They took a needle biopsy of my liver. After all that fuss and expense, they had not removed enough tissue to determine anything. My girlfriend, who is battling end stage lung cancer had a biopsy of a tumor. After they ran the test, there was no tissue left, so they could not determine the genome.

    I am so sorry for your trouble. I have been battling Hep-C since 2008, but at least I have a diagnosis if not a cure.

    May 2012 be the best year for you, Rosemary. You remain in my prayers.

  6. It's good to hear from you, Cyber-Celt. I didn't realize you were dealing with Hep-C, but as bad as my memory is – maybe I did know that a long time ago.

    I had a liver biopsy last year during all the testing they did. That was so painful they x-rayed to be sure they hadn't nicked the lung.

    I hope you have a good year, too!
