Received letter from consultant today saying recent endoscopy showed dilated veins in gullet. Have already started on betablockers. Is now arranging for an updated ultrasound as he was surprised with findings based on previous blood results and scans. Does this mean that the although urso seems to improve my bloods and has stopped my itching that it isn't preventing my liver deteriorating? Not feeling very positive at the moment but neither do I want to worry those close to me. Still working but finding everything very hard going, physically as well as mentally. Sorry to sound off but hope you all understand.
