Feeling very anxious as have a Fibroscan this morning. I had alcohol related Hepatitis in January with 3 weeks in hossie and a pile of steroids I stopped end of March, so far my blood tests went all back to normal by the end of May and I had an ultrasound in July which was completely normal too but having been haunted daily in hospital by different consultants constantly telling me I had a 1 in 3 chance of not making it or "you're not out of the woods yet" these words are implanted in my brain.
I have PTSD and anxiety issues anyway and I drink only when I have overloaded to the point of being totally overwhelmed and unable to cope or sometimes it was as if an unknown trigger launched it off but my goodness when that happened I drank copious amounts just wanting to block away life.. the rest of the time I could and can take or leave alcohol so I now avoid it like the plague and have done since hospital...
So I am hoping that this Fibroscan will also be ok.. I accept though that whatever will be will be but I awfulise things to the point that it interferes with functioning on a daily basis.. I've been handed Diazepam for a good 10 years or so too! I try to minimise usage.
Anyway, I digress, just hope I don't have a person doing the scan like the one who did the US as she literally didn't say a word other than turn this way or that. So you walk out with yet another worry. I personally asked my GP who accessed the result in the end rather than waiting in limbo land for months.
Oh well had a banana and just water this morning, I know I mustn't have anything 2 hours before other than small sips of water if necessary!
Hope everyone has a good day x
