Have you ever heard of someone having DRY HARD BONE? Well lucky me...I have it. What a horrible experience today! My doctor went in for the marrow and tissue but kept saying she wasn't getting any blood...kept saying my bone was dry. I can't count how many times she tried, but she finally gave up and decided to go in at another location...higher up. She had to re-numb that whole area and then decided to give me a pill called adavan (sp?) to calm me down.By that time the only thing that could of calmed me down would have been a galon of Crown Royal!!!(seriously)Anyways, she started all over in the upper hip and after what seemed like an eternity she finally got enough blood with tissue. She had a heck of a time getting the bone sample because she said my bone was thick and hard as rock. I could hear the screwing sound going in to the bone and then a popping jerking sucking sound when she pulled it out. The pressure coming out was off the hook!!!! It took an hour and a half and I felt like a wet noodle when she finished. My hip is still numb right now, but I'm thinking it won't be long before that wears off. Hate to sound like a baby guys, but that BMB was one bad A$$ test and I don't look forward to EVER having it done again!!! She said we won't get the results back before July 26th.The tests have to go to Spokane and Seattle. She told me to take my 2 week vacation and I'm then scheduled to discuss what treatment she will plan for me the week we get home...Aug 16 at 2:30, So....it looks like I'll be fishin and relaxin before chemo..."YES"! Ok...need to go sit down and watch the 2 hour special on Captain Phil...Deadliest Catch. My oldest son fished the Bearing Sea for 12 years....I hated it! Now he's a Union roofer...thank God!
