I have eventually found out that I have cirrhosis after nearly 12 months of being told "you have some scarring on your liver, you need to stop drinking" I asked my GP for a copy of the letter from the Gastroenterologist and there it was, the word itself CIRRHOSIS, I was frightened, no petrified, I thought I had months to live. I madly started setting up Lasting power of attorney sorting out my affairs so my wife would be ok but then I found this site, what a relief, straight talking people with personal experience. Yesterday I went for my 2nd fibroscan armed with the knowledge I needed to ask questions and for a figure, which is 32.5 kPa. I have no other symptoms and all my LFT's are fine. I stopped drinking as soon as I saw that letter which was 8 weeks ago. Do I really need to be worried? Please be honest.
