MightyMouse Posted March 28, 2006 Report Share Posted March 28, 2006 I have to have another cervical biopsy tomorrow at 3pm. Those darned gyn procedures hurt like a bugger. I never can figure out why they can't give us anything to keep us from being in pain while they get whatever tissue they require. It's just so barbaric. I've made this joke before, but I'm again going to remind my doctor of the following:Don't tell me it's just going to be a quick cramp--because if that turns out NOT to be true AGAIN, then it's only fair for you to share my experience by letting me snip a piece of your privates with a nailclipper. I figure the two experiences are about equal you'll just feel a little pinch (before you pass out screaming for pain killers).I always get a huge adrenaline surge during the procedure (I think this is my 6th?)--I can't hear or see for the first few minutes, and my head totally pounds with my heart thump, thump, thumping in my ears. Then comes the nausea and the big red hot sweats, followed by dizziness and a crash a few minutes later as my supply of epinephrine is gone. This is the first time I'm going to have to drive myself home afterwards, except for the first time because I was naive and stupid enough to believe the doctor who told me I'd "just feel a hard cramp" and then could go back to work. NOT... that time, I should said, "and now YOU will feel a hard KICK". Can you tell I don't want to do this? Perhaps this would be a perfect time for some xanax? Darn... haven't had any of that stuff around for a very long time. Okay, that's my vent. Thanks!Nina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
