Hello. This is my first post. Although I've been lurking since early October.
After being unwell since march this year I have been told I have Nafld. Cirrhosis with some fibrous. My hep nurse did a scan. Said I would have to have tests every six months for the rest of my life. And a gastroscopy every three years. I go for my first gastroscopy tomorrow and am feeling pretty nervous.
She sent me on my way saying I needed to up my calories to more of a normal person and lose weight through exercise. To download two information sheets from the liver trust and she'd see me in six weeks. But if I has any questions to email her.
I've since sent two emails that make me feel, firstly that I'm over thinking things and secondly saying I don't need to do anything special.
She did say my liver was working and doing its job.
My consultant wrote to my GP saying I have cirrhosis with fibrous and that it was caused by antibiotics. Although I don't recall any conversation with him about medication.
I'm feeling pretty confused if this Diagnosis is as serious as I first thought. Am I right to be concerned?
Sorry for the long post I just feel like I'm trying to get my head around a lot.
