Hi all hope you all as well as can be. I am going Friday for my biopsy in nodes in chest wall. I would apprciate any one who has had it done there experience. They are going to put tube through mouth in to chest wall to get biopsy.
I had this done last summer. I was very nervous about the whole thing but after I came out of anesthia it wasn't bad at all. I was a little sore but nothing too big and my surgeon did a freeze stain so they pretty much had an answer before I came to. All in all, this was by far my easiest "surgical" procedure to date.
