A New Kind of Pain

by Tom on June 16th, 2009

I went in for my bone marrow biopsy today during lunchtime. First Dr Norman used a local anesthetic to dull all of the nerves that he could.

Then there was a bunch of stuff that would sound gruesome if I wrote it out; he took a little bit of bone marrow, a little bit of bone, and it really hurt (but the hurt was in short bursts).

Also, my hip bone was so strong that it bent the tip of the tool he used.

Now I have a band-aid on my hip and it hurts to walk. Looking forward to a (hopefully) negative result!

    If I remember correctly, you called this the “sweet zombie jesus” kind of pain.
