vocal cord scraping?  
 "Don't worry! You won't feel a thing.... till I jam this down your throat!"
i'm kidding. 
they freeze everything up before they slide anything in. 
as i said, it went well. they discovered i have a strong "tolerance" to the medications they gave me. (fentanyl and some kind of muscle relaxant). ? mum said i just metabolize things quickly, but i saw some eye-darting. it worked out much better than the last time- the nurses were great (they have one for bronchs now, which they didn't before. the nurse on the floor was good, and was able to get the IV in nice and easy). the IV wasn't interstitial, i DID get plenty of benefit from the meds (though i was more awake than i should have been, they said) and they were able to open and empty the cavity, while doing brushings, get a good sample, and wash everything out. 
the best part about it was i went to the hotel and had steak and chips. OMG, yum. it was the first meal i've actually been hungry for in weeks, and finished a meal and feeling sated. 
i shouldn't have had the double dark and stormy, perhaps. i dozed and slept on the drive home, and went right to the couch, feeling very grumpy and headachy. so, i'm just relaxing.
life is good.
