Hi everyone i was diagnosed today with pbc. I had a blood test done called mitochondrial (m2) antibody. It showed me at level 76.4. I recently had my gallbladder removed march 10th 2016 as well as a liver biopsy. I had went to a previous surgeon and he wouldn't do surgery because he said i had cirrhosis. The new surgeon ( the one who did my gallbladder removal and biopsy) said it showed i had a fatty liver not too bad and asked me if a drank. I told him no and he said as long as u dont drink youll be ok. I said what's that suppose to mean? He said ur young, healthy you'll be ok. Now four months later i am diagnosed. It doesn't make sense to me. I received the news today and I'm not sure how i feel about everything. I guess its just the not knowing what stage i am. Would i know by symptoms? I have upper right quadrant pain that radiates down to like my hip bone area and lower back pain of course i have extreme fatigue no energy and anxiety with it all. I feel at times my whole body is aching is any one feeling the same things? I noticed many people talk about urso or some form of medication. Does this disease progress fast? Please tell me some of your stories. Im just afraid im going to die.
