: THANKS PAT. I HAVE A QUESTION:IS THAT LIVER BIOPSY THAT THE DOC WILL STICK THE NEADLE TO YOUR STOMACH AND GET PEACE OF LIVER OUT? ANYONE KNOW PLEASE LET ME KNOW?THANKS.
YES, THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT HE'LL DO. THEY NUMB YOUR SIDE (RIGHT) WHICH IS WHAT I SAID BURNT LIKE HELL BUT IT'S NOTHING THAT YOU CAN'T HANDLE THEM THEY TAKE A SYRINGE TYPE AND INSIERT IT INTO YOUR LIVER. I'TS SO QUICK AND IT'S JUST A MICROSCOPIC PIECE OF LIVER. I WAS LIKE YOU, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A BIG CHUNCK BUT IT'S NOT. YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE IT. I ASKED THE DOC IF HE WAS SURE HE GOT IT CAUSE I COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE SYRINGE. HE LAUGH. KEEP IN TOUCH AND LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES. THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART.
