Hi everybody. I'm new to this place, my mom goes on the site. I'm only eleven. Has anybody here ever had a biopsy done? If so can you tell me how it went, I'm pretty nervous for tomorrow. :(

Hi ,

Just to clarify, this is not Bette, that's my mom, she also uses this message board and told me about the teen section. I posted this message under my moms user name, I still need to set up my own-- whoops.


KK :P

Hey there... no worries about the procedure. It is pretty easy--the hardest part is not eating until its over ! You should be out for the procedure, and not notice anything. You shouldn't feel any pain either. The worst might be that you have a bit of a sore throat afterwards. Good luck!!

You won't feel a thing. When I did the procedure 25 years ago, I was fully conscious, and the only unpleasant part was getting sick as the tube went down. The biopsy itself is painless, as there are no nerve endings in the lining of the intestine.

Cheers,

You kind of freaked me out, because I private messaged with your mom a few times.
Good luck and my thoughts and prayers are with you.
