Hi - I was diagnosed earlier this year after having my Gallbladder removed. I have only this week been told, after a Fibroscan that it is as bad as the surgeon thought. So the scarring is really bad but I have been reading people knowing a score from this and was not given one. My bloods from months ago were not bad however they have taken more bloods this week to check. I am experiencing memory/concentration problems, forget what I am talking about, make mistakes, forget words. i am also very tired. I asked at my first appointment to be referred to a dietician but the Consultant thought I was doing well myself. After hearing that the Chirrhosis (can never spell it correctly) is bad I completely forgot to ask to be referred again. How many people have been referred to a dietician and how did they get on? Also has anyone got any tips on coping with this diagnosis and the symptoms that are coming down the line. I want to make as many changes as I can to keep my liver working as long as possible. I want to try to be as positive as i can but have not been this week so far as I felt quite shocked this week - I think it is really sinking in now.
Sorry don't mean to be all doom and gloom but just looking for some advice if anyone can help.
