I had the Bone Biopsy done at University Hospital, Kathleen drove because I would not be able to drive home.  Basically, I was given enough drugs to knock me out because I’m told no one want to have a Bone Biopsy done any other way.

But here’s the cool part.  The biopsy is taken while you’re in the CT Scanner!  So they get me all set up in the scanner, and then the radiologist, Gaston, comes in and, with the imaging from the CT scanner, knows exactly where and how deep to insert the needle to obtain the biopsy.

After the biopsy, Kathleen drove me home and we relaxed the rest of the day.
