Biopsy/Fine Needle Aspiration....
If you are taking any medication that may thin your blood such as, Coumadin, Warfarin, Aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, Ibuprofen, please contact the office prior to your appointment so that instructions can be given on when to stop those medications in preparation of your biopsy. Eat a good breakfast the morning of your biopsy. Notify the office staff right away if you have an allergy to Lidocaine, Xylocaine, etc. During your procedure, you will receive a numbing injection into your neck area. Depending on how many sides you are getting biopsied, there will be approximately 3-4 sticks per side. For most patients, this will give a feeling of heavy pressure. A driver is not necessary and your procedure will take approximately 20 minutes. Tylenol may be taken after the procedure if there is any discomfort.
Arterial Doppler Test...
During this procedure, blood pressure cuffs will be placed on your arms and ankles. If you wear TED/Compression stockings, pantyhose, we ask that those not be worn on your test day.
