In April I had some questionable blood results, high ama's and high ferritin at my regular doctor. She ordered add't bloodwork which came back with more questionable results. She referred me to a gastrointerologist who repeated some of the blood work, ordered additional blood work and scheduled an ultrasound. I was told the results of the ultrasound were that I had a "fatty liver and some scarring". Ama's are still high. He then ordered a CT to give a more detailed idea of the scarring. I was called with the results and was told i had a "fatty liver and some scarring". AMA's and ferritin are still high and the subject of PBC was brought up. In order to verify this I was scheduled for a liver biopsy which they did transjugular due to some concern with bleeding. I just got the results today. They were that I had a "fatty liver and some scarring". Am I crazy or does this not sound like duplicated answers for three different procedures which were supposed to further my understanding of what is going on. All of these test results were delivered by phone by his nurse with no additonal explanation or notes indicating any further explanation. Just "call back in a couple of months if anything changes". Please if anyone knows of a reputable doctor in western North Carolina please let me know. At 55 relatively healthy years this is a first for me!
