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

Since you have mentioned NASH, I would like to share this link from Mayo Clinic's Patient Care and Health Information. As you read through it, you will find some more about the role of the liver biopsy.

During my liver biopsies, I was awake. My abdomen was numbed, and the only thing that I felt was pressure when the doctor inserted the needle for the samples. I had at least 2 and both were at different facilities. The procedure did not tkae long at all. The anticipation and the hospital setting were the most uncomfortable part for me. I was relieved when it was finished. Afterward, I remember that there was a period time when I had to lie on my and be monitored to be sure of no internal bleeding.

@adah, I want to be sure that you see what I have posted about a liver biopsy. And I would like to ask you to tell us little about the fiber test? How long did it take for you to get the results?
Soteloli, When is your fiber test?

Waiting for dr to schedule it

Have not had biopsy yet.
Just curious do you still have gallbladder?
