Three & half years ago I was diagnosed with non-cirrhotic portal hypertension due to blood clots (Myeloproliferative Neoplasm). I'd had a fibroscan then with a score of 4.6.
However, this Easter I developed obstructive jaundice and my liver readings were up. My Jaundice went away after a couple of weeks.
I then had an endoscope to check my varices & they were barely noticeable. I've also had MRI, CT, Ultrasound and they can't detect gallstones.
What's making me nervous is that even though my varices & portal hypertension are minor my liver enzymes are still a bit elevated and obstructive jaundice is associated with liver disease.
Is it possible to have fibrosis & even cirrhosis with barely minor varices and portal hypertension?
