Russian Roulette With My Life

Well  tomorrow I’m scheduled in for a bone marrow biopsy because my last MRI was somewhat less than favourable.  Something is going on in my bone marrow.

Not sure how long it will take to get the results back.  From what I understand, I am going to be awake during the procedure. They are going to freeze me with a local anesthetic and insert a needle in either my back or my pelvis to get a piece of bone and bone marrow to biopsy.  I’m rooting for the pelvis because I have enough problems with my back.  I’m going to take my bottle of oxycocet and hope for the best when the freezing stops working.   I heard that it is a painful procedure.

I’m going to soon be blogging about a cancer treatment I went to in Germany in February.  I didn’t write about it because I didn’t tell my doctors what I had done.  (I was afraid I would be dumped as a patient and not considered for any clinical trials).  But the cat’s out of the bag now because I told my oncologist, so now I can share what alternative treatment I had.

Not sure if I made the right decision…kind get the feeling that  I am playing Russian Roulette with my life.  But what is done is done.
