My mom is having her thyroid biopsy right now as I type this. I pray she isn't in pain.

Happy holidays to all of you, you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Please don't forget to mention my mom in your prayers. I am asking God to ease her anxiety while we wait for the results of this biopsy. I am also praying that it isn't a met from colon cancer and that it isn't a new primary.

Peace be with you all.

    No discomfort
    My thoughts are with you and your mom, Krystie! If the thyroid needle biopsy is anything like an adrenal or lung biopsy, then she won't be in any pain or discomfort. They freeze the outer layer of skin where your nerve endings are and once the needle is inside, there is no feeling there. Meanwhile, they give you that "conscious sedation"... like the stuff they use for colonoscopies so either you don't remember the procedure at all, or if you are awake for the whole thing (that'll be me ), then you are so relaxed you have no idea you shouldn't be relaxed :)

    But I will defintely be sending thoughts your mom's way that the biopsy doesn't find any cancer.
