Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The tests are very safe / they are done by the specialist / - under monitoring / with all safety and resuscitative measures in place... / No problem
That is the only way to confirm the diagnosis / a proper diagnosis is necessary for proper treatment...
The treating doctor alone can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation / comorbidities and so on.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
