Once again in trying to wrap my head around this thing called PBC

I had a appointment today with my GI to go over my labs he had requested last week. I get them pretty much the very next day on my chart. I apparently read them wrong. I was told I've gone into end stage F3 cirrhosis into the beginning of F4. But I can still stay right where Im at for a awhile before I'll need to be placed on the waiting list. It's all up to the treatment. Plus I will return in the morning for another EGD just to make sure I do not need any banding or if the varicies have grown. He said that there's no need for a biopsy at this point because all I can do now is to continue the treatment & they'll (meaning him & my heptologist) keep up with everything else. In other words, try not to stress & over think it. Just let them do the figuring. Im already exhausted from the news alone. Guess I'll plan on being down for a day or so. Please everyone, say a little prayer for me in the morning.

Stay strong❣️

  • ❤❤❤I'm keeping you in my prayers. This scripture always comforts me. It reminds me that in especially stressful times to give everything over to God. He can give us peace of heart and mind no matter what happens.

    (Phil. 4:6-7) Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God. (7) And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.

  • Hi Shulsey

    You are always so positive even when things are going against you I am sure you will soon bounce back with your positive nature. From the other side of the "pond" I am sending lots of positive thoughts your way. Hope your EGD goes well. When you feel up to it let us know how you are getting on.
