Well last jan I had a elastgraphy at a private clinic for PBC . exam score was 22.7 kp with is equal to F4. Ultrasound technician said my liver was very patchy and I had cirrhosis. I also had an ultrasound of my liver.
My Hepatologist said he didn’t believe the results and booked me for a fibroscan at the local public hospital. Well finally had scan this morning. First nurse wasn’t happy that the score she was getting was reliable as she was having trouble getting scores, second nurse couldn’t get any scores, I was told to wait back in the waiting room and a third nurse came and took me in. She managed to get a score she was happy with of 4.2kp! She managed to find a spot and took 10 readings one after the other in the same spot. Which I thought was a bit strange?
So I know my Hepatologist will be happy and want to accept the latest score but really I didn’t feel very confident that they knew what they were doing lol.
My question is has anyone else had a similar experience where they got a really bad score and then a normal score like this?
