Hi, Nearly my first post. I have had AIH for about 5 yrs. On Prednisolone for a lot of that time which didn't control it very well. I was put on Mycophenolate which I didn't tolerate very well so I stopped taking. Should mention I can't have Azathiaprin. Recently I was referred to a different specialist who asked for loads of tests again and I have now found out that I have GAVE and my fibroscan showed F4 (really not sure what that number means everyone else seems to talk of 11s or 12s) but I am told that I now have cirrohsis. I am very scared. I have started mycophenolate again as I believe if I don't it's curtains for me! What I really want to know is what other people do to cope with this and is there any hope? It has obviously been quite a shock to me as I wasn't really feeling all that ill. Any positive advice would be much appreciated as I am feeling quite low. Thanks in advance.
