Please share your experience with having a biopsy. I'm recently diagnosed (per bloodwork) and the doctor has ordered a biopsy to stage my PBC. Although I've been through a lot medically, this has me on edge. I'm not sure if it's fear of the procedure or a combination of being staged and recently diagnosed. I appreciate your input.

I got through the biopsy just fine and realize that much of my apprehension is the fear of being staged and not knowing what my future holds. I suppose it is something I will need to learn to live with. For those who read this and have future biopsies planned, my experience wasn't bad. I was given sedatives and didn't feel anything, but some slight residual shoulder, back and flank discomfort last night and today. I did get a bit nauseated from the meds, but slept off the feeling, and know that by tomorrow, I should be at my normal level again. Thanks everyone who commented below and eased my fears!
