Jerry, perhaps it is different with AIH, but in most liver diseases biopsies really do tell what is going on better than anything else.
Is your hepatologist the one who would do the biopsy? If so, did he do the other 2? I can understand that you would not want to have another biopsy done by the doc who punctured your gall bladder. Just remember that you have the right to refuse any type of diagnostic procedure or treatment at any time.
