I don't know quite what to do here but I'll try my best. I'm Martin, age 41 (mental age of about 11) and a couple of months ago diagnosed with PBC.
Yes - a bloke with PBC - my Doctor seemed quite pleased he had a chap with the condition as it's quite rare. Also if it helps my location is Central Scotland.
At the moment I have diffuse cirrhosis of the liver and varices in the throat. I'm taking tablets for the varices (propanolol) but nothing for the PBC. I'm booked up for regular endoscope exams and seeing the gastroenteritis doctor again in September. He seems to expect at some point that my cirrhosis will develop tumours but blood tests will show this up.
As I say it's my first proper blog post. Hello to everyone with this condition! I'm having a really hard time with my missus who just does not want to hear anything about it.
