I had my 1st BMB done with new onc. this past Tuesday and I was so terrified after last experience with other onc. He had me take a xanax and oxycodone before I came He must of gave me 20 shots of numbing agent and then massaged by butt which I thought was odd but he said it makes the numbing agent move around and not stay just in the area where he shot it in at. Was going to ask him to move up and massage the back too. I felt 1 tiny bit of pain when he went into the bone but didnt last long at all but later that day and yesterday I could barely walk and still very sore today too and swollen around the hip area some. All I could picture was a cartoon with all those needle holes that when I was given a drink it would spray out the holes like a sprinkler!!!!! Glad it's over and done with but I really was numb just now hurt and have trouble walking.
And I WAS NOT strapped down at all like last time!!!!!
