    Sex after the treatments are over
    I am confused.How long until it's ok to have unprotected sex with my partner? I was told that it takes 3 months before the Chemo leaves your system. Does one have to wait the whole 3 months? I was told only a kiss on the cheek is ok. Ok....I'm new here.....I am trying to delete this and make it a new post.....but am having no luck. Sorry all.

    Marrow biopsy
    I know I'm late in this response. I am a "new memeber" as of today. I had a bone marrow biopsy done at the doctor's office. He was able to numb my hip so I felt no pain there. I did feel pain when my marrow was aspirated and when he took a piece out. But it was very short in duration and once it was done I had no pain or side effects at all. I drove myself home and perfomred my daily activities with no problems at all. Good luck you to you!
