: hi JERY LYNN.
: thanks for your informations.
: but i still wonder the Doctor told me they will inject the needle inside not cut my stomatch of.earn't they?
: please give me the answer?
That's right, they use a needle. It's long and takes small sections of your liver to look at under the microscope.
Some doctors give a local anesthetic and some don't.
I have heard many advise to ask for a drug called versed. If you are nervous, ask for it.
The biopsy takes about 10 minutes and you are home the same day. I have not heard of anyone needing stitches before.
I jope this helps
