Keeping Busy Following an Oral Biopsy so You Don't Panic


Posted on 10/13/2017 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
Oral Biopsy Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants WI 53713
An oral biopsy puts anyone in a panic. Not only does it mean that you might have something wrong with your mouth, but it could be serious. You've already gone through the biopsy, but now you have to wait for the results - good or bad.

By taking some time to keep yourself busy during the waiting period, you won't have to worry about panicking the whole time until someone gives you a call.

Things to Do to Keep Your Mind Busy
Here are some things you can do to keep your mind busy during the waiting period. It is always good to have something to do that is not only busy for your mind, but for your hands.

•  Exercise more often - You can go to a park, run around the block, jog or even walk a trail. Exercise in your own home or do some yoga. With many options, this keeps your mind and body occupied with something else.
•  Read a really good book - Being absorbed in a book is never a bad thing. You can take yourself somewhere else for a few days while you wait. This allows you to explore and think about something else for the time being.
•  Spend time with family and friends - They can talk with you about everything and anything. They can play games with you, laugh with you, watch movies with you. You will not be alone, which is always a good thing.
