So I recently found out I was Chronic Hep B...had a liver scan and biopsy on Jan 8th, 2013...4 months later finally getting the results. I have to see Dr and discuss results asap and talk about treatments/medicine. I'm thinking maybe I should do another liver biopsy first to actually see how much damage has occurred from not being put on medicine right away? How often can you have a liver biopsy?
You do not have to make biopsy so often if not at all. Now we have Fibroscan that is nonivasive test for fibrosis and it substitutes biopsy in most of the cases.
Post your test results here and you will get some advice.
