Has Anyone Here Ever Have A Liver Biopsy?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I need to have one done. I was wondering if anyone here ever has one done before? I'm not looking forward to it.

no and I would not look forward to it either.  I hope it comes back on the good side of the scale John.   Sorry you have to go through this...      GOOD LUCK...

Thanks everyone. Just waiting to hear back from the hospital about scheduling. Trying to figure out what's wrong with me.

When they tell you to lay still in bed after you wake up, lay still for as long as they tell you (3-5 hours).

But you should he fine.

Can I ask what they saw in your blood work or sonogram that prompted this?

Keeping you in my prayers

I have two autoimmune diseases, one attacks every organ in my body and I was misdiagnosed for years and unfortunately, it's taken it's toll on me. My liver functions are off of the charts and I constantly have very high ferritin levels like over 1200 when they should be under 300. Do they put you under or do they give you a local?

Gernal anesthetic... You'll be awake

You'll lay down, they will numb you, make a small incision and laparoscopically go in with a needle and grab a couple of pieces.

Stitch you up and you will go to recovery where you just lay there for a few hours where your BP is monitored just so they make sure you dont have internal bleeding.
