Tomorrow is my third bone marrow biopsy. The first was in July, 2008. It was very painful and revealed a 70% cancer load. The second was December, 2010. It was only a little uncomfortable and showed that chemo had pushed my cancer load to less than 1%.
So now tomorrow will be the determining factor on whether or not my bone marrow transplant has been a success. All the blood work points toward success. But we won't know until it's checked with a bone marrow biopsy.
This anxiety about both the results and the possible pain of the actual procedure has driven me to ice cream.
