What was your lip biopsy experience?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a horrific lip biopsy experience that has caused me so much suffering for the past 2+ years. I’m trying to gain a better understanding of what else I may be able to do from here, as the aftermath of my lip biopsy has caused me more discomfort and stress than any of my autoimmune issues ever have.

My thought is my ENT did the biopsy up way too high. The indentation where there are glands missing is extremely close to the top of my inner lip. It hits against my teeth when I talk, eat, etc. The scar is also pretty bumpy and not smooth at all after 2+ years, which I think contributes to the discomfort.

If you can share your experience and where exactly the glands were taken from (close to lip, which side, how did the scar heal, is it uncomfortable, etc.), I’d really appreciate it.

I can’t really say the feeling is painful, just extremely annoying and uncomfortable. It just really gets to me when I want my inner lip to feel “normal” again and wasn’t warned of any of this.
