Lumbar puncture

Today they made a lumbar puncture. They had to do it twice. They tried lying down, but that didn’t work so I had to sit in the end. It was a bit painful, but after lying down and drinking a lot I didn’t develop a headache (common side effect). The results will be in tomorrow.

In the evening at 19.30h, the hematologist paid me a visit. He examined me for swollen lymph nodes or lymphoma but found nothing. He stayed a long time to answer my questions, which was nice. I understand the exams better now, but I still don’t understand their wish for another biopsy if the LP doesn’t give any new insights.
