My daughter, 7 months, had a bone marrow biopsy done

My daughter, 7 months, had a bone marrow biopsy done about 3 weeks ago and it is taking so long to get an answer but I got the initial information and am wondering if anything looks like reason for concern.

My daughter, 32 has HCV. Four weeks ago she was admitted to a hospital with double pneumonia an still there. Fever 103* off and on. Today a bone marrow biopsy was done. I CANNOT get a clear answer as to what is going on with her. I in VA and her in FL, phone calls only. Why a bone marrow? What are they looking for? I know you are not her doctor but is this common, first or end stage? I am raising her son, my grandson. In laymans term I need some answers PLEASE!

I m having a bone marrow biopsy done in a couple weeks. My WBC has been high for months now, hovering at around 13,000. I ve had a CT of my lungs which showed nothing and I quit smoking with no decrease in count. What could the doctor be looking for in my bone marrow? Is that WBC typical with any types of leukemia?

I m scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy. When I was at my pain management appt.(was seen by a fabulous nurse practitioner and she stated that I tell the Doctor that I want to be sedated (twilight). I have seen diff. Dr s doing the test. Some just number the area of the biopsy, but one stated that he starts an I.V. with a calming drug you have to be awake of course, but not feel the worse of the pain. The Dr. would ask if the patient was feeling pressure or pain and if the patient was in pain they would administer it through the I.V. where others just numb the area in the back. I go to Zangmeister Oncology & Hematology Center, and lucky enough (I am being told) to be seen by the big dog , Dr. Zangmeister himself. I don t know whether to find a different center that does perform it under a slight sedation, or do the majority of Dr s do the procedure w/o I.V. sedation? Thank you, Miss Betty
