I had a bone marrow biopsy Tuesday of this week. The doctor was unable to get any marrow during the procedure. He said he was going to hospitalize me, put me to sleep and have it done through the breastbone. I was so woozy from the Ativan that I did not ask him why the biopsy had failed. Has this happened to anyone else? My blood work still looks pretty good. My platelets are not low. However, I had recently taken Xarelto which had caused bruising . However,at the time of the biopsy I was no longer on Xarelto and no longer had bruising. I really need feedback on this because I am worried.
