Im scheudled this Friday for a bronchoscopy biopsy! Anyone have this Done before? I was told it’s not invasive or anything bu wondering about the recovery of it ? I heard your throat and mouth are numb which is a little scary to me I feel like I’m gonna wake up and not be able to talk? Any info will be appreciated.

I nearly had a bronchoscopy two years ago to biopsy a lung tumor, but monitoring over two years (via CTs) de the pulmonoloigist conclude that it was benign.

Bronch uses only local deadening and should take less than an hour.  Side-effects are extremely rare, and when they do occur, minor.    If worried about a brief inability to speak, take a legal pad and pen to the proceedure and write instead.  I had to write for 16 days while on a vent years ago, and it was no big deal.

I hope the bio is wholly negative Lacie,

Thank you so much for the info Max! I’m hoping for negative results to and just hoping for the best at this point.
