Good morning everyone. Thank you for all the advice I have received on this forum. Just wanted to let you all know that I am having my liver biopsy on 13th May. My Dr thinks I have had a long standing steatohepatitis due to uncontrolled cholesterol and triglycerides. The biopsy should reveal more or confirm this diagnosis. Still have daily pain especially after eating so I am really hoping for the answers. By the way does anyone know if there is any preparation needed before the biopsy like fasting? I am having it under local anaesthetic but ultrasound guided. Thank you all and have a good day.

Good luck !
I will be thinking about you on Monday. Love and hugs Lynne xxxx
Hi Millie, Hope it goes well for you and you get a good result🤞
Good luck Millie2014, im sure the hospital said to pack overnight bag, but if not, pack an over night bag lok🙂. I ended up staying over, nothing serious , think it was just down to timing.
Take care xx
I will do. Thank you
I thought I’d be out the same day but due to timing issues(I had to lay flat and try not to move for 6 hours) had to stay overnight so take a bag just in case.
Wishing you good luck and hopeful results😀
Thanks very much
Hi Millie wishing you all the best for Monday, will wait to see what your results are, take care. Jane xx
Let me know how it goes Mille ❤
Thanks Phoenix. I'm a little nervous but I am very pleased to be having it done. Will definitely let you know the outcome ❤
