Hiya All Has anyone had a liver biopsy?
Any details and whether the results confirmed cirrhosis would be much appreciated
I was diagnosed with cirrhosis in November 2012 from a Fibroscan (75 Kpa) and abnormal LFT's. I was still drinking when I was admitted the next day with acute alcoholic hepatitis.
I have been abstinent from alcohol since then and a nurse mentioned at my last appointment that a liver biopsy is the only way to confirm if I have cirrhosis or whether, as my last Fibroscan (8.8 Kpa) indicated, that some degree of healing had occurred.
A doctor I saw at the same clinic two years ago said because my bloods were consistently normal, he wouldn't risk a biopsy !
Any input welcome
