The procedure was fine. Twilight sleep sedation so I was unaware during the procedure. "Woke up" when rolling down the hall in extreme pain in the right side and right shoulder blade. My wife says I writhed in pain for twenty minutes until the additional IV pain meds took effect. After the pain meds kicked in, I slept for about two hours in recovery, after finally finding a comfortable position and applying ice. They gave me 1000mg of Tylenol and sent me home. I layed down in bed and continued hours of trying to get comfortable/snoozing. After four hours, I took more Tylenol, propped myself up in a good position, ate some grapes, and slept for 90 minutes, and woke up feeling much better.
My wife tells me the nurse who helped with the procedure said my pain had nothing to do with the biopsy and they had only seen this once before. Let's see, rolled in feeling the usual liver twinge/discomfort, came out almost screaming...
Anybody else experience this before?
