Topic: Pain in lung area after needle lung biopsy
Wondering if any have had a needle lung biopsy. My dad had one on Wednesday, and at the time it hurt(and he is pretty tollerant guy for pain) and as of last night, it was still pretty painful on the side of his lung area wihere they went in with the needle. My dad said the Dr went in twice, b/c he had a hard time getting a sample of cells, so maybe that has something to do with the pain. The nurse said the pain should subside within a day.
I am just a bit concerned, b/c I don't like any reason for my dad to stay laying on the couch and skipping meals.....
