My husband has the lymph node biopsy in his groin...It was painful, and your Dad will be sore for a while...I think your fathers Dr's are being proactive...It sucks but it is better to know...then they can treat it...
I hope he gets the all clear with this one...

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Has anyone here had a lymph node biopsy? Was it painful and what was the recovery time? I'm not so sure that it's a good idea to start "poking" lymph nodes, but depending on how a CT scan comes out on Friday, Dad may have to have a pelvic node biopsied.
It's so hard for me to accept that doctors DO get it WRONG and in my Dad's case, DID get it wrong. I know they are human, but they are also paid big bucks to get things right. Guess I'm just frustrated because Dad got the "all clear" when he had his r/c and has since had to have the urethra removed and now a node biopsied.
