Liver biopsy all booked

Millie2014 profile image

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.

No eating or drinking ( except water) for 6 hours before, no water for 2 hours before. You should have instructions with your appt letter.

Good luck !

Your welcome Millie 👍

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

Hi Millie,

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.
