Liver Biospy relationship to Liver Enzymes, HBV DNA
In July came down with Pancreatitis found out my Gall Bladder was in bad shape but my blood work showed I had Hepatitis B! My GP felt I had for a time and all the symptoms I had was due to the Gall Bladder. Well the surgeons felt that it was Hepatitis and stalled the surgery for a week. Reluctantly they found a surgeon who agreed with my GP and took the Gall Bladder out. They did a liver Biospy at the same time which showed moderate scarring, inflammation and some mention of bridging. My GP had me do follow up for the Hep B with a GI doc in Sep who review my records and wasn't certain if I had Acute or a Flare up Chronic Hepatitis and sent me home with bloodwork to be done in Nov. Got that done Surface Antigen is positive no antibodies the core antigen is positive and the viral load is 368 million units he thinks it looks like Chronic but wants me to do bloodwork again in March. The AST & ALT were normal. Does this mean the inflammation and scarring is healed?
