no big deal

Of all the biopsies I’ve had, a skin punch biopsy was the easiest and least problematic. A skin biopsy can look for peripheral sensory nerve damage and death. It is a quite accurate measure.

I had one prior to starting treatment, which for me has been IVIG, and a second one after a year of treatment. The results between the two where significant and a good measure to show my insurance co that the therapy was working.

I wish you the best with your decision.
