Can you advise please?

I had hepatitis E in Mar 2017, in hospital for 10 days.

The specialist indicated I had damage to my liver bordering on cirrhosis indications.

Fibroscan showed 15.5 subsequently falling to about 12.6, 6 months later.

The diagnosis was that I had NAFLD.

My question is how long can it take for a liver to recover? If it is going to?

Dont feel know one cares, but your question is not possible to answer.

The ask one to ask I your consultant.

Have a look at the British Liver Trust page about Non-Alcohol Related Fatty Liver Disease and see if there are any changes you can make to life style which can further improve your liver health. Your question is a bit like "How long is a piece of string?" Even a doctor won't be able to answer especially with Hep E being a trigger and not necessarily other lifestyle factors.

Have a look and see if there is any further help you can give to your liver.


There is also a page specifically about Hepatitis E as well. britishlivertrust.org.uk/li...
