Good morning all!
I just wanted some insight into my latest appointment with Hepatology which has terrified me.
I was diagnosed with fatty liver about 3 years ago due to PCOS and weight gain. All I was told was to lose some weight and nothing more, which stupidly made me think it wasn't a big deal. I have now gained even more weight and my results are even worse and now classed as severe.
I spoke to Hepatology yesterday and the consultant said he needed to take bloods to check for scarring, and if they come back bad I will need an endoscopy which is my worst fear. He scared the life out of me saying the scarring is irreversible and could go on to become cancer!
I came out an absolute wreck as I'm only 33. I now fear I'm going to die an early death because of this. When I have Google cirrihosis it comes up with terrible statistics on life expectancy.
I am on a strict diet and doing exercise but I am worried its too late now and I've damaged my liver too much.
If anyone has PCOS could you please let me know what course or action you took ?
