Wow, I guess now I am going to have this stupid PBC too. I have fibromyalgia, sjogren's, undifferentiated connective tissue disease. What the hell? My liver enzymes kept going up, the rheumatologist sent me to the hepatologist. She said loss weight you chubby lady, so I lost 35lb but my enzymes went up. Boohoo, sent me for ultra sound, fatty liver, woohooo, stop eating crap. Cool, no go still high. Go have MRI. liver look good, groovy, let's go for cocktails, not so fast. Those enzymes are not good and once like a year ago I had a positive AMA. like 1 stupid time. Now, biopsy day after Halloween. So I am off anti inflammatory so I don't bleed to death after the biopsy. So let's just say In a word. PAIN!
Soooo, simple questions for you PBC veterans, how bad is the biopsy through the neck? And how bad does this PBC suck. Do we get to drink at all or is it no cocktails ever?
