I was diagnosed with pbc in January and am due a follow up appointment at the end of August. Does anyone know what I should be expect/ what's best practice? I started on urso at the end of January, but my gastro didn't arrange any follow up blood tests. I just took the medication leaflet to my GP who followed me up,with monthly blood tests for 3 months and then another blood test at 6 months. I seem to remember that I should have bloods done every 6 months and an ultrasound every 6 months? Does anyone have a fibroscan, I've read that this shows cirrhosis more clearly than an ordinary ultrasound scan. I feel I should go in armed with all the information I can p. I don't have much faith in the doctor.
