So I'm now back from my Biopsy. It was a lot of waiting around. I ended up having an ultrasound guided biopsy instead of a CT scan guided one. Since it was decided last minute by the doctor performing it, I had an IV in my arm for 4 hours for no reason! That was annoying and hurt more than the actual biopsy itself. I was told it would be numbed and it wasn't but the pain from the needles was very minimum so I didn't mind. The doctor said it seemed to have trouble at first when trying to locate it with his fingers but luckily he was able to find it in the end. Now the waiting game continues as I wait to hear from the ENT. I was told up to 48 hrs but I kind of want the news after this weekend because I graduate from college on Thursday and I'm having a graduation party this weekend. But on the other hand I want to be able to enjoy this weekend without any worries. It's so annoying that everything had to happen all at the same time

Despite the IV thing, I'm glad it went well. Hoping for good results!

Im sure everything is fine Joey  ;D  I've been getting scared over a node I found in my neck, but today I finally realized the swelling had decreased and it takes me a while to find it now.

Hi everyone.

A sort of update: I haven't gotten my results back yet. I was told by the hospital that I would hear from the doctor within 48 hrs. I waited 8 days before I decided to call them up and see what the delay was. Turns out he was away and just getting back in the office and catching up on things, perfect timing for me, now I have to wait for my appointment next Tuesday at 10:45 am.

However, since having the biopsy, the lump has actually shrunk ALOT! I'm hoping that means it wasn't lymphoma and that it was just an infection of some sort. The lump had remained 1cm for over a year, never got bigger, and now that a needle was stuck into it, it shrunk. Well, next Tuesday I find out for sure what's going on.... Still nervous..
