Liver biopsy

@adah, I have had several of liver biopsies due to liver disease. It is the way that the liver Gastroenterologist (GI) or Hepatologist (liver spcialist) can find out if there is any damage inside the liver, or to what degree. Elevated LFT's (liver function tets) can only show that there is something that is acting against the liver.
If I can be of any help or answer what I remember, please let me know.

I have fatty liver and am having the MRI with fiber test , I am hoping this will not lead to further testing
Can you tell me more about the biopsy procedure

The dr says the FibroSure test shows my son has fibrosis of the liver, and he does not want to do liver biopsy. How do I know how bad fibrosis is without biopsy???
He just wants to keep an eye on it.

Hi Rosemary,
I have just been advised that I will need a guided liver biopsy for possible non alcoholic PBC. I am extremely nervous about it. Can I ask you if you have had this type of test and is it very painful? I’m very scared.

Regards,
Alice
