I'm having a liver biopsy next week and I'm freaking out. I've got ulcerative colitis and due to raised levels in blood tests they are checking for autoimmune liver disease (related to the IBD). The levels have been down in my last couple of tests which I'm hopeful is a good sign but they want to biopsy just to be sure.
I'm mainly worried about the procedure as nobody has explained the ins and outs of it (so to speak) and then how long it will take until receiving results. Its stressing me out hugely as im also waiting for results from tests for arthritis (also related to the IBD). I'm only 20 so all these things are really worrying me and having an emotional impact on my daily life.
