My liver specialist thinks I might have PBC at age 19 just after having a baby boy. It started out with severe itching with what everyone thought was obstetric cholestasis which is a pregnancy condition that effects your liver which causes severe itching. Just 6 days after having my baby I was rushed in with an inflamed liver that you could visibly see by my rib cage. I had lost so much weight and was in a lot of pain with a fever and high blood pressure. After having liver biopsys and countless hospital appointments having CT scans and MRI scans the doctors are still unsure of what is actually wrong with me. 7 weeks later I'm still waiting for test results to come back for an actual diagnosis. The itching has consumed me mentally and physically, every day seems to be a huge struggle with itching and extreme tiredness. I'm just wondering has anyone else ever experienced anything like this at such a young age? I'm scared for my health and I just want to be well enough to for my son. Medication isn't helping me and I've been on URSO for the past 10 months now. Any advice would be much appreciated🙂
