I am on 1500 mgs of Urso, 60 mgs of Nadolol, 50 mgs of Imuran, and 20 mgs or Prednisone.
I've been diagnosed with a probable underlying autoimmune hepatitis and I've bled twice due to varices. The first time was in December which led to my diagnosis of PBC. I am also going into Portland, Oregon on the 13th for a liver transplant evaluation. I get blood work monthly and an ultrasound every three or six months. Other than that I see my specialist every three months.
My doctor seems to be more concerned about me bleeding again rather than liver failure. If I bleed one more time I have to have a surgery to redirect the blood flow from my heart to my liver.
