    I am happy to report that I made it through my kidney biopsy without any complications!!! You have no idea how terrified I was to have it. In 1999 I had one and nearly bled to death because they hit a large artery. After that one I had to be in the hospital for 3 weeks!
    After spending the night in hospital, I am home now. The biopsy site is still quite sore, but they gave me pain meds for that.
