PBC and weight loss surgery - is it safe? safe as it can be!

Hey everyone...I have primary billary cirrhosis (PBC) and I am considering having a gastric band - I also have fatty liver. I was scheduled to see a surgeon today but the appointment was cancelled and I just want to know if i'm even able to have the surgery before tackling the other issues that might come with it! I'm wondering if anybody else has any liver conditions and was still able to have weight loss surgery? Thanks in advance :-)

I don't know the answer, but it sounds risky to me. You need to discuss this with a Hepatologist or liver specialist. Gastric bypass is a very big procedure with permanent alterations to the digestive tract. I would tread very carefully here.
