Re: does bone marrow biopsy hurt?
I had mine done a number of years ago, and I have to say it was really painful. To the extent, that I have refused to have another one. However, I have heard it said that it is very dependent on the skill of the Dr who does it, and part of the reason I have refused one recently was because I know which Dr does them at my onc centre, and I have no faith in him.
So yes, it can be very painful, but that certainly does not always seem to be the case.
