I got a call from my GI's office with the results of my liver biopsy. She said it confirmed the diagnosis of PBC, but that she believes I have an AIH overlap. She said it was not noted on the biopsy results, so the doctor was currently on the phone with the pathologist who read my biopsy asking him to double check his findings. She asked me to go have labs drawn that would help confirm or deny the AIH overlap, which I am scheduled for tomorrow morning.
My MRCP was totally normal, "unremarkable in anyway.
So... obviously I'm still scared. The jaundice is clearing by the day, so I'm hoping the Urso is working. As a note, I was jaundiced to the core when I had my baby June 29th, almost 12 weeks ago. I mean, the OB/GYN doing my c-section had students with him and said "We may have a very jaundiced baby on our hands as the uterus is jaundiced." He was not. He is perfect, but my uterus was yellow, the amniotic fluid was yellow, my breast milk was neon yellow and I was advised to stop nursing and we went to formula before leaving the hospital. So maybe some of this is that jaundice still clearing out of my system?
My ANA was negative. I thought that ruled out AHI? Am I mistaken? Any advice or whatever is greatly appreciated. My husband is away from home for the week and I'm quite scared.
