I need some advice about a letter

I was told of specialist I need biopsy to see if my lupus has flared up tht he will sort out it for me to have biopsy. so I got letter a month ago saying appointment has been made for you to attend the dermatology department. you will be seen by one of dr jef fergusons team on 6 th sept . does this mean I will b having biopsy on tht day on does it mean I will see someone that will sort me out to hav one next appointment has it don't say nothing about biopsy?

  • hi i had 6 biopsys at my first dermy appointment it doesnt hurt and i didnt have any stitches its like a potatoe peeler (sorry thats all i can think of describing it) then a follow up appointment was made on the day for the results which was 6 weeks hope ive helped

  • thanks hun

  • I had 2 biopsy's at the same time as i saw my dermatologist, it's nothing to worry about just a nick and stitch within minutes. This is a sure way of seeing what your lupus is doing. My advice is not to worry about it. I wish you all the best x
