Ultrasound coming up

Hello everyone, hoping you are doing well.

I just began posting here.

It was a bit ago. I have been having some elevated liver enzymes and not feeling so good. I was told years ago I had PBC soon coarse there is concern.

I am feeling better, I think it is because I haven’t been eating much because of tummy upset and also I just feel full all the time. A few bites of my meal and I’m full. I have motility problems. So I have been using Senokot S to keep things moving.

Am I correct to think that cautious choices and small appetite can settle a liver flare up?

I did get a call from my rheumy and she has ordered an ultrasound.

Will that show here what she needs to know if there is a valid concern regarding PBC?

I see her in office on February 26 so I can speak to her more then.

Question....does PBC wax and wain?

Hi Tuffymason

There is some good advice on diet on the following link, scroll to the end for PBC


Lactulose is, I understand, a medication which is kinder to our systems. It is a stool softener rather than a purgative.

Yes I do believe that some of the symptoms of PBC can wax and wain especially if something causes a flare.

best wishes
