I woke up early today at 7 AM. Today’s my biopsy.
A biopsy is when a tiny machine travels through your veins and grabs a piece of your muscle tissue. I’m having a cardiac biopsy, which means they’re getting muscle tissue from my heart.
They put an IV in me, then injected me with medicine. I’m doing full anesthesia, which means I’ll be put fully to sleep during the procedure.
At my other biospies they can gradually reduce my anesthesia until I don’t use anesthesia anymore. The less anesthesia I use, the faster I can recover and get out of the hospital.
When I woke up, my thighs were orange and there was a band aid over my groin. I had to wait two hours before I could get up again. After those 2 hours, I was discharged from the hospital.
