Poohbear Posted January 9, 2010 Report Share Posted January 9, 2010 I did a search but couldn't find the information I was looking for.Has anyone here had an open muscle biopsy? If so, can you share you experiences with it....particularly how bad your pain was afterward and how long the pain lasted. I'm a little concerned....read on a general web search that people were given narcotics for pain and I don't do well with ANY pain medications. I've also read they had trouble walking for days afterward etc.I read that you should not do any major activity or strain the muscle biopsied for a week or two after. I'm expecting to have issues with the dressing too as I am allergic to all adhesives. They will be using dissolvable stitches and I do fine with those.Just a little anxious and wanting some input. I can handle anything as long as I know what to expect but the Dr's office is being vague---just telling me I can't drive and that further instructions will be given that day. I live alone and don't know if I need to plan on staying with someone a day or so or if I will be fine but just in pain. Thanks for any input or sharing your own experiences!
