I guess my title sums you my question. Based on those 3 tests I was diagnosed with early stage fibrosis. I ask the question because I feel my symptoms were those of someone with more liver damage than early fibrosis.
I lost 10 lbs if water in the first week I was on Metformin. Prior to my diagnosis I was so full of water I looked like I'd burst. My stomach looked 8 months pregnant. I was always hot and sweaty when everyone else was freezing and I was so tired. I would be ready to dose off at traffic lights. My stool was pale and runny, my hair was falling out and my stomach was gassy and bloated. I always had reflux and belching and felt sick after I ate (did NOT lose my appetite or any weight).
It just seems like my symptoms were more like cirrhosis, especially my huge belly. And if it really is only as far as fibrosis how long does it take to heal? Obviously more than weeks, I still have the right sided pain under my ribs but most other symptoms have calmed down. And it's been almost 6 months. Does it take years to heal? And how will I know? And how will I know if it doesn't heal, if it's just a little better now from meds and diet but it's still get worse?
I know no one can say for sure, but I'm just wondering based on personal experience. Thanks.
