I posted a while back following being in hospital in January with Alcohol related hepatitis, strong steroids were used in the end and I came home, haven't drunk since, saw consultant once in March with a blood test and then again this week.
My blood test in March, unbeknown to me until a couple of days ago, showed Hepatitis E but he kind of dismissed it! My bilirubin I know was normal on the March test but ALT was still a bit elevated, they are all now within normal ranges according to my GP who I also saw this week.
He was totally stumped about the Hepatitis E and pulled up my March blood test to find it and it said Hepatitis E detected... He said he rarely if ever saw that type so was going to go and read about it!!!
My Fibroscan that I was due to have in July was moved by the hospital to November so in terms of my liver itself, other than blood tests I know nothing and not even the consultant has ever felt around my liver area since being out of hospital.
Obviously I do not drink and wont regardless of blood test results but this Hep E is a new one on me!
Anyone been through similar?
