In brief: Liver biopsy

Your body temperatures are normal.
The majority of the population has had ebv infection in the past. What we have here is a failure to communicate. You need to talk to your doctor and have them explain in detail what they think you have and how the liver biopsy will help them manage your condition. Good luck and best wishes.
