All About Lung Biopsies

The lung biopsy was not nearly as bad as I worried about it being. Very little pain, very little discomfort at all.

Took about 30 minutes – but there was 3 hours of pre and post recovery time. They do some lung xrays to make sure your lung isn’t collapsing.

They biopsied the right lung and I will not have the results until next week.

This is where they stuck the needle in:

 

Puncturing my lung with a needle!

During the actual procedure they blocked my view so I couldn’t see the actually jabbing in! I am on basically bed rest for today then light activity until Monday. Here’s your chance all you fitbit friends!

Nap time for me now.
