    Hello Suzanne….I don’t believe we have seen much of spleen embolization on this site. But it makes sense to prevent the spleen from gobbling up all the platelets.
    You are a trooper.
    Best wishes are coming your way,

    Hi Suzanne, well look at you…venturing into unchartered territory for CC. Waz up? Life got too dull the way it was? Seriously, wishing you loads of good luck on the biopsy. I love your descriptions and your medical terms are right up there with mine. Nice!

    Hi Suzanne,

    I hope all goes well with the results from this biopsy and that you can get the treatment that you are looking for.

    Best wishes,

    Suzanne,
    Hope you get the results you are looking for. I have never heard of a spleen embolization. Hm, will need to read some more.

    Take care adn enjoy the summer.

    Today was bone marrow biopsy day and boy was it fun! Actually, it really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The worst part for me was the injection of the lidocain to numb the area that would be nicked to insert the tube thingy (official medical word) to extract the bone marrow. For me, it was not as annoyingly uncomfortable as a paracentesis.
    Now, as usual, it’s just waiting for the results to come back, which will be late next week some time.
    If the platelet production in my bone marrow is normal, I’m probably looking at a spleen embolization in the very near future. I think that will be a much different story as far as pain and discomfort are concerned. Hopefully though, doing this will cause my platelets to be released and go up, so I can seriously look at clinical trials.
    So much fun to be had……
