Hello, I have 2 nodules on my thyroid and a 2.7cm neck lymph node. I am trying to schedule the biopsies inquiring at two local hospitals. My question is this:
-One hospital - no restrictions on eating/drinking--local anesthesia --in and out...just have someone pick me up.
-The other hospital - I will be under sedation (colonoscopy-like sedation), underwent questionnaire, no eating 8 hours before, no drinking 2 hours before, will take 90 minutes and recover, 2 hours recovery, have someone pick me up.
I haven't decided which to go with. Why the big disparity? On one hand I don't want to have anesthesia if I really don't have to, on the other I don't want to suffer too much.
Has anyone had Thyroid and or neck lymph node FNA biopsies? And if so what was it like? Thank you!
