13 Needles

I went in for a thyroid and lymphnode biopsy at my endocrinologist’s yesterday. Since he was taking smaples from my thyroid and two lymphnodes I was prepared for 3 needles. But what I got was 10 for the biopsy and 3 for numbing the different parts of my neck. But those three seemed to be just to poke at me more because the other 10 needles hurt like hell. But luckily after 45 minutes he got enough good samples to test. Now let’s just hope that all is well and I don’t have to go through that again.
