painful



I had an FNA done b/c I have multiple nodules.  The Dr. told me that I had a very odd shaped thyroid.  I was warned that there was a 1/15 % chance that results would be inconclusive. The procedure was more painful than I expected.  Although I told them in advance that in the past it has taken excessive doses of novicaine to numb me and the ultrasound technician assured me that they would make sure I was numb before I started, that was not the case.  The 1st (left side) seemed much less painful.  The second side, I was given to shots and not enough time for it to kick in.  It was very uncomfortable.
