Hi! I'm new here, and got my diagnosis last week, stage 1 it seemed, after the biopsy.
My question to all you who have had a biopsy done. How often do complications occur? Many of you who had it?
I had a (what they said) small bile leak from the puncture. It did not continue leaking. I had a lot of pain after, and they looked again with ultrasound, and then an x-ray of some sort och lungs and tummy,and didn't find anything else. I was sent home. The ride home was difficult, and as soon as I got home I threw up. Then rested for a while on the couch in a lot of pain, that was getting worse. With my husband's help I went over to my bed instead. After a while I couldn't even lift my arms, it hurt so much. Decided I need to go to the ER, but threw up again when I tried to stand up. Called for ambulance. Then I stayed over night at hospital. They gave me lots of morphine, which didn't seem to help much. Excruciating pain. Comparable to giving birth (I have 2 kids) Later some stesolid and something else, and around 2 am I could relax and sleep.
Several weeks after I had pain, and can still feel it a bit now 7 weeks later, but now maybe it's just inflammation of the liver I feel?! I don't know. They have checked me with ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and couldn't find anything.
Anyone else had problems like these? Normal? Your experiences?
I'm a bit afraid I might have to go through it again if I later on have to have another biopsy.
