Disclaimer: preaching to the choir.........Ok, yesterday I had my first 12 core biopsy.....ultasound guided. Local anesthetic injection not too bad. First four cores not too bad....next four started to hurt and last three were downright painful.
I don't think the local was wearing off, so is it possible the pain is just additive with each core taken ? Also, I'm no neurologist but the pain was also referred down my penis on the same side as the one being sampled in the prostate. Anyone else have this experience ?
Twilight/ IV sedation is now used for breast biopsy, wisdom tooth extraction, colonoscopy, etc. Why not Prostate biopsy ?? I see why many men refuse a second biopsy, even when it is necessary.
