Hi, Teababy. They may want to get samples from different parts of your liver to get a more complete picture of your liver's condition. The liver is the largest organ in the body, 2nd only to the skin. There is a right and left lobe. While I only had one sample taken when I had biopsies, I'm sure there are valid reasons why your doctor wants more. The first biopsy I had I found it very painful, as they would not give me any kind of medication prior to it and I was very tense. For the 2nd one, it was done while I was under anesthesia for removal of the rt. lobe of my liver, so of course I didn't feel a thing.
The biopsy will tell the doctor the extent of your liver damage...if you have cirrhosis or cancer, etc.
