A little knowledge if anyone can help. I have cirrhosis, portal hypertension, varices of which numerous have been banded. I have haemorrhaged on several occasions, and also had several blood tansfusions, along with other complications.
Today I went for a routine Endoscopy, they have banded another two large varices, but also detected PHG in my stomach. I am not familiar with this, they want me to return to endoscopy in 8 weeks, not sure why, maybe just to check bandings. I am already on Propranolol, beta blocker, which I have read will help. What does this new condition mean to me and are there any other treatments?
Many thanks for any advice or knowledge that you can offer me. Xx
