Question: post bone marrow biopsy pain

 oldakasha - Sun Apr 08, 2007 10:56 pm

How long after a bone marrow biopsy should I be experiencing pain. Its been almost a week and I can barely sit, bend and.sleep on that side of my body at all.It almost feels as if there are lumps under the skin. This is my second bone marrow biopsy and I do not remember hurting this long after the first one.

User avatar A week seems a little long. In the children I have done biopsies on they are usually feeling better in a few days.

I would recommend you see your doctor to have the sight evaluated for infection, etc. to be sure that everything is OK.
