Can i get fibroscan done

I suffered from ribcage pain on right side in April after a heavy workout. I felt it was due to acidity and since it was persistent, also underwent ultrasound blood tests and found that I had fatty liver grade 2. It was also diagnosed that I had hiatus hernia in endoscopy. I followed a strict diet regime and brought down my grade of fatty liver to 1. But from then on I get pain whenever I go back to my work outs or if I do some hard work at home. I also got Fibroscan done 2 months back and realised to be border case. Reduced my fat and oily food intake. But still suffering from pain when I do work, and it hurts sleeping on right side. Talked to Ortho and found no orthopaedic issues including spine. As I am more worried about my liver, can I get one more fibroscan without damaging liver. Though I understand it to be non invasive, but will the signals during the test disturb liver function?

I met Dr. Kamalakannan 2 months ago when I complained f frequent chest pains. He prescribed certain Meds and procedures but kept telling me constantly that something was not right as my pain didn't see I met Dr. Kamalakannan 2 months ago when I complained f frequent chest pains. He prescribed certain Meds and procedures but kept telling me constantly that something was not right as my pain didn't seem like "normal gas aches or pains"
I was admitted in the Mehta hospitals ER 2 days later as my pain was unbearable. I thought I was having a heart attack. I remember it was Tamil New Year's Day and yet, Dr. came in the evening to have a look and see what went wrong. He had already diagnosed the issue over the phone when the duty doctors called after I was admitted.

Long story short, I had a gall bladder surgery preceding an ERCP under the able hands of Dr. Mohammed Ali from billroth ( referred and rigorously followed through by Dr. Kamalakannan ) and today I had my stent removed successfully.
Thank you doc for saving my life and instilling faith in us every step of the way. Dr. Kamalakannan is highly recommended by me for any gastro issue. He has immense experience and is very precise with his diagnosis. Thumbs up and cheers!

I planned to have it in Kumaran Hospital on the 4th of The doctor examined me clinically and found that i had inguinal hernia. He advised me to get it repaired when i was fit to undergo the procedure. I planned to have it in Kumaran Hospital on the 4th of June. I had a smooth pre-operational protocal from 12 noon on that day. Dr. R. Kamalakannan performed the open surgery between 8.30 pm and 10 pm. It was a friendly surgical team. My COPD posed some challenges to the anaesthetist. He handled them deftly. Dr. R.K. performed the procedure efficiently as I could sense it since the anaesthesia was only local.
The post-operative care was very satisfactory. The recovery was good. 3 weeks after the surgery now, i am quite normal. Dr. R.K.'s professional approach is not only objective but also patient- friendly.
