I had a kidney biopsy a few years ago when first dx'd. No, they don't put you out, I was awake the whole time, and honestly, since my memory is pretty bad I don't remember if they just numbed me up or what! I'm assuming they did, I don't remember feeling any pain with it. It looks and sounds worse than it is! I hope all goes well with yours. The good part is that if they catch it on time they can fix it. Mine was pretty severe, I had to go thru chemo because the cellcept wouldn't have kicked in fast enough before kidney failure. I was lucky they got it when they did. I have not had any problems with them since. You will be in my thoughts, let us know how things work out!
