I am having a liver biopsy next monday. Had uterine cancer and total hysterectomy April 2003. Been having abnormal liver function tests before and after hysterectomy. Dr. finally sent me to hepatoligist and he now would like to do biopsy. CT scan showed fatty liver. My ALP test is always high, so he is doing a liver biopsy. Has anyone had these same abnormal liver blood test? And liver biopsy? Also, has anyone been told first that they had a fatty liver? Thanks for your help!

Any possible pain or discomfort as a result of a liver biopsy lasts for a short period of time.
