Hey Ron H, I had my initial lung biopsy exactly like yours, but I had to have drugs, lots of them, I have Epilepsy and one of my triggers for seizures is high stressful situations and for me I had to be put in a very relaxed mode then out with that twilight stuff 😃 so I felt no pain once that hit. I was lucky no lung collapse. It was after when I went home that the pain hit! Dr called in a few pain meds, I was ok after a couple days. Sorry they didn't give you adequate pre-admission instructions sucks to have to just hang around and wait. I'll keep you in my prayers, so when you go for your results they are clean!
Take care, Roseann
Thank you all for your replies and encouragement. I did end up tali g with Dr and he lowered the steroid dose on seco d round of chemo which really helped. There was some rage but quite manageable plus an anxiety pill. Now with all treatment ended for now his meanness has subsided.
