But the Doctor Said…

needle biopsies and cancer treatmentAs cancer patients, and former cancer patients, we become very in-tune with our bodies. We memorize what drugs we are allergic to, we know exactly what it means when we feel a certain way and even why certain tests won’t work on us. So docs, sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to us.:)

Recently, I had a needle biopsy. Needle biopsies do have their place, but not when diagnosing my condition. How do I know this?—Well through my own personal case study from years ago and my former oncologists at Emory University.

Now, don’t get me wrong, doctors and people in the medical profession have done so much for me. Without them I’d be, well, dead! All I’m asking from them is to sometimes pay a little more attention to what I have to say. Because this needle biopsy that was ATTEMPTED, just caused pain and didn’t even reach the inside of the lymph node—and even if it did, it would have been to no avail.

My question to other survivors is, have you had similar problems?
