Biopsy went well yesterday eventually. After being told I was going to have a general anesthetic it was decided due to my bowel being stuck to the sides there was every chance they would perforate the bowel, therefore leaving me with peritonitus and unable to have the chemo. So they reverted to the original plan of a scan needle biopsy.They scheduled this for 1pm (I had been there since 8am). I think he managed to get 4 biopsies and said he was pleased with what he had got. I had to lie flat on my back for 5 hours once back on the ward - not easy trying to eat and drink and after being discharged arrived back home at 7.45pm. I felt only a slight discomfort and the Doctor who performed the biopsy was brilliant, he rescheduled to fit me in - otherwise it would have been a waste of a day and a further appointment. I had no pain whatsoever.
