Where are the lymph nodes located that will be biopsied? My husband recently had a lymph node biopsy and his para aortic lymph nodes. It was quite a simple procedure. They gave him Twilight sleep and he said it was the world's largest needle but he had very minimal pain for the next couple of days and was just told to take it easy. He received the results a week later at his doctor's appointment but I'm sure the results were available before that.
