Biopsy Results

Hi all. Got the results of my biopsy on Friday. Not as good as i hoped for as the auto immune hepatitis is attacking the liver as well as the pbc. Started on high dose of steroids to try and counteract it. Was told i have got a life changing illness. Back to clinic in 3 weeks to see what there going to do next. Hope ur all well and enjoy Christmas.xx

Hi, To say there will not be changes would be a lie, however I did not find the life style changes not all that major. I got just a little fusy on food but that was only looking at the ingredients more. I wish you luck for the future.

Same. Just taking the URSO and prednisone...7 mg. Say i would have issues if i dont tske the antiinflammatory. The docs are serious and i stopped taking mine inlieu for tumeric and milk thistle and my disease ended in me having liver failure. I didnt follow their protocol which they can refuse the liver transplant. I was so scared and pleaded i will follow their rules and was getting better with their meds. The docs ie liver specialists mean business. Lowered my AST and bilirubin. I was very yellow and my eyes were too. I am now white again. I just have the caput madusea and lowr abd varicose veins. This is my issue as i am 49 and dating. Makes me want to cry.

I wish you well I only have PBC. But it all depends what your life was before. It has been life changing for me. It's affected Evey aspect of my life. I can't digest fat or alchol without problems so it has been a major change & the fatigue has impacted on my work life. I am quite symptomatic I now wear glasses cause I can't wear contact lenses. & Lots of other little things. Which actually are quite livable but it has changed big style. I'm still here though & try to live for every minute. Xxx

Thanks for the reply's. Just finding im a bit weepy at the moment so going to take some time off work to let it sink in.

Already affected my working life going from a deputy manager to a team leader and now looks im going to have to drop a day as im always so tired and finding it hard to concentrate.

Wishing you all a Happy 2017. xx

So sorry to hear about how things are going at the moment for you.

I have an appointment with my consultant tomorrow to discuss a possible biopsy to diagnose PBC/AIH overlap.

You mention life changes can I just ask you what that could be as I feel even with PBC my life has been changed as I still work full time which is a struggle and my home life suffers as a result of fatigue and pain.

Really worried about tomorrow's appointment to be honest as I haven't got a clue what to expect.

Thanks xx

Hi Jayne. Sorry only just seen your message. Not sure what changers they are talking about as yet. My work and home life have already changed. Dropped a grade at work and also doing less hours. Luckily for me my husband as also changed his job so he is very supportive and does a lot of the running off our house. Hope your appointment went well. Hope 2017 brings us better health.xx
