For those who have been wondering, I finally had my appt yesterday. He isn’t the one I’ve been waiting for. Seemed the other one was taking a little too long. My GI’s NP made a phone call to Dr Mantry, head of Hepatology at
Methodist Liver Institute in Dallas. (Methodist denied him seeing me a few months ago because I am self pay). So Machelle worked her magic & he agreed to a consultation appt. After reviewing my records he said he has no concerns. I will continue OCA. The two vitamins he wants me to take are Vit A & Vit D (prescription). I expressed my concerns regarding fibroscan. He said BMI has a lot to do with accuracy & he does them daily & will probably want to do one himself at his Dallas office. I stil don’t want one., lol! There might be a biopsy in the future. No diet restrictions because he feels my liver is having no problems functioning , but I will still be sensible. NO RAW FISH. He feels weight loss is due to thyroid & definitely not the liver. So unless I have a problem, I see him 6 months & labs will be done at that time. He said if I get antsy & want them at 3 months, ok, but no need. So I am finally at total peace ☺️. I love this man & feel blessed.
