I just got the results from my liver biopsy and the results are normal! I know I should be jumping for joy but I just don't have a warm feeling about it. Prior to this, my LFTs were ALP =513, ALT = 450; GGT = 750, cholesterol = 10.6, Fibroscan = 14.8, BMI = 17.3, AMA negative, and B12 = 1035. I don't drink or smoke. The consultant gastroenterologist (not a liver specialist) thought it was PBC and prescribed Urso. Within several weeks my LFT numbers went right down. Now he is saying that it's probably not PBC and to no longer take Urso. The only thing he plans to do is see me in three months and repeat the LFTs.
How can my numbers be so "deranged" yet the biopsy results be normal? I have read that between 20% and 40% of biopsy results are not accurate.
I would like another opinion but in my area (West Wales) I am not allowed to see another consultant.
Does anyone have any advice as to what to do, if anything? Or should I just ignore it all?
Many thanks in advance,
