Patient Comments: Liver - Biopsy

Have you had a liver biopsy? Please share your experience.

Comment from: Karen, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: August 13

I had a liver biopsy today. It was not as bad as I had thought it would be. After the happy juice, I felt a small pinch while numbing the liver area for puncture and the site where the sample would be taken. Then, poof, it was over. So don't worry, and don't let others' experiences scare you.
