Michele, I agree with Mary about everything she said. You will feel some pain as the area is numbed. You will feel pressure. Take a valium or similar drug... but you will need to have someone drive you back.
Fear creeps in because of the unknown. You have never had anything like this done and you can only imagine what it will be like... totally a human thing to happen. The procedure is relatively quick, but you will spend time waiting.... for the doctor, for the anesthetic to take effect, and for the result to come back. I think we can all say the wait for the results was the worst of all. I will tell you the results will be back within a week. Try to keep yourself busy, Most of these things come back benign. In fact, one of my friends just had this same procedure done and it was benign. I really wish you the very best. Take care, Sharon
