Bone Marrow Biopsy
Aug 12, 2006
Hello everyone, I hope you all are well.

I just need some information on BONE MARROW BIOPSY.
I have posted before about my problems and I was scedualed to see a Hematologist/Oncologist this past Wed, and when he looked at my blood work and imediatly said we need to do a bone marrow it normal for them to do a biopsy the first time being seen? I was scared to death. So he went and got everything ready and the biopsy was started.
he told me that there would be fluid taken and a small piece of bone and it will take 2 weeks to know the answers.

Ok what all can a biopsy tell, can it detect any type of cancer or just does it tell if you have leukemia. I know it is used to stage cancer. It is possible that it will show types of stomach cancer. that was the reason for going along with my blood work.

Does it really take 2 weeks to get the results back. I go back the 23rd for my results and the waiting is kinda stressfull.
