Hi there,
I had a liver biopsy done when I found out I had Hepatitis C. I think it's natural to be nervous when we're going in to something with unexpected outcome. I was real nervous, but I really had myself all worked up over nothing. It's an outpatient surgery and although I was under antisthetics, I was aware of what was going on to a degree. It doesn't take long once they go in they just snip a little piece of the liver off, put a couple stitches in and put you in a room to come down off the antisthetics. Pretty simple procedure, really. No need to worry. Good luck!
