More biopsies ordered...

I met with yet another specialist today. This time it's a GI Specialist. I really like him. (Thanks for the referral, my Relocated Angel!)

Anyway ... he explained that it's common for Lymphoma to present in the GI tract, most commonly in the stomach. So, next Tuesday he will be doing biopsies of my GI tract. Thankfully, I'll be asleep during the whole procedure.

And, THAT brings up another point ... Why will they put me to sleep for this procedure (and insurance will pay for it), but NOT for bone marrow biopsies?? Really? Who made that decision?

Oh, well, it was worth the $307.
