Re: debating to have lip biopsy... need advice, story and labs inside

I've had the lip biopsy done about 3 weeks ago. What hurt was the shots to numb the area. Afterwards, you won't feel a thing. The numbness goes away after an hour or so. Then I took 2 tylenols for the pain. The stitches will melt after a week. It is tolerable.

The doctor said it is not definitive but suggestive that I might have it. All my blood tests showed negative but I still have the dry mouth , throat and nose, and eyes. I have an appt on 11/26 to discuss. If it will answer your concerns about having Sjogrens or not, then I say go for it.
