I became very sick in 2008 with acute renal failure and raised LFT Very high. I had temp confusion difficulty with so each and walking. Not to mention my vision. I went undiagnosed until 2012 when l went to a city specialist Gastro. I had an intersusseption of my bowel which needed an operation She diagnosed me straight away and admitteded me and started investigations. Fantastic.
Started Ursofalk and have slowly gotten better. Less swollen. Eyes remain extremely dry but not with one pupil bigger than the other. My face no longer is strangely swollen. Biopsy then showed no cirrhosis.
My LFT have come down but never normal.l am getting more pain on my right side and on the left. Getting reflux and a sore stomach. I am more tired. l have a lot of spider nevea over my face and neck. And bluish bruising. on my arms. Looking back l had itching 20years ago on my feet and hands over the years but not now.
I asked my specialist what stage l was and she seemed angry telling me she has very young patients with this disease. I don't want a liver transplant as l am 65. On the next appointment she told me l had cirrhosis stage 1.
I think l might be more. Just want to know so l can make the best of my life.
Sorry about the long story
Any suggestions Colleen
