So I've been on Urso ~4 months now since being diagnosed with stage 1 PBC and got my bloods done myself at work and I'm soon scheduled for my 6 month review with my GI. I found with my bloods I did myself (just did out of interest to see if I was responding to medication) that my LFTs had come down, but my bilirubin had gone up slightly! Has anyone ever found that before? For the few years that my bloods were being done before diagnosis my bilirubin was always 7. And then within a month of taking Urso it had gone to 13! I know it's still within range but should I be concerned!
Also with PBC do you get liver pain? I may have just become a total hypochondriac since diagnosis but sometimes I feel like i've an ache in my liver area. Can this happen from this disease?
Thanks, Emer x
