Thinking of you and hoping you get plenty of guilt-free couch time and extra sleep (if you feel so inclined).

Thank you all! I'm so touched by your well wishes to a new member of this community.

It was pretty painful and I shed tears. The most disappointing part, though, is that they were unable to get the sample after all that. 

On to the specialist in a few weeks, who will hopefully have other ways of doing it.

I'm home, on the couch, and contemplating from whence to order dinner to be delivered.

Oh, crud.  So you had all the discomfort with none of the compensation (a diagnosis).  Hopefully the specialist will be able to manage things.

I'm so sorry, Laudity.  My fingers are crossed for the specialist (and that they give you anesthesia--it should be an option).

Yup, pretty much.

I had some wine, a great night of sleep, then a workout today. My mind and body seem to have recovered from the experience now. I'm much calmer about next steps and my worry about the wait for information has lessened considerably.

I have my appointment with the ob-gyn in 2 weeks. Not sure if that's just a consult, or if they'll try the biopsy again, but at least things are happening.

How's everyone else doing?

Laudity, if they decide to do the biopsy again, could I suggest taking an OTC painkiller that includes a muscle relaxant (the sort people take for back pain, etc). Back in the day, I used to take a couple of Beserol whenever I went to the gynae to have my IUD replaced and I found that it helped, firstly, to stop me tensing up during the procedure and it also helped with the invariable cramps afterwards, while the IUD was settling in. You may find it helpful in your situation too.

Thanks for the tip, Fkm100! Will try that this week.

I'm currently hemorrhaging.  Fan-freakin-tastic. I am glad, however, that it waited until after my very long teaching day to really ramp up to Level Horror Movie bleeding.

Just dropping by to say that the biopsy was successful and relatively pain free!! Such a difference going to see a dr. who specializes in doing this.
