Hello everyone, hope you are all okay under the circumstances. A bit of a dumb question, and I am asking as I don't google as I tend to scare myself but what do my gradings mean. I was told my "stage" about 3 years ago was 2 by Gastroenterologist, and on my first appointment with hepatologist last Autumn was "Child Pugh A". What are the differences and are these figures anything to panic about. I have cirhossis, portal hypertension, 6 banded varicies done between last May and September. What is the difference between Stage results and Child Pugh.
Hope someone can enlighten me.
