Morning, I would appreciate some advice. I had an episode of alcohol hepatitis 12 months ago following a couple of months daily drinking. Mainly been a 3-4 bottles of wine a week person. Also cholecystitis at the same time. Stopped alcohol immediately. Diagnosed with small gallstones. 3 months ago had cholangitis , but they never found the stone but mrcp picked up course liver structure. Two consultants diagnosed cirrhosis.
Last week another doctor tried to do a fibroscan, but he couldnt get an accurate result, he thought it was reading about 10. He has decided to refer me for a liver biopsy. He is thinking I don't have cirrhosis.
I have hypothyroidism, and also horrendous daily thigh and hip pain, under my feet is like walking on pebbles and my fingers hurt.
I have asked about AIH, PBC, and other hep conditions, but have been told blood tests are negative. I feel they have not bottomed a true diagnosis, and have been getting conflicting results/advice for a year. Will a biopsy help with a better diagnosis.? ?
