What are the signs and symptoms of advanced liver fibrosis?
It means scarring of normal tissue -> normal function decreases
Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.
I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. Liver fibrosis is the scarring process that represents the liver’s response to injury. With the passage of time this process can result in cirrhosis of the liver, in which the architectural organization of the functional units of the liver becomes so disrupted that blood flow through the liver and liver function become disturbed. Ultimately liver fails to perform its normal functions and symptoms appear.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
Pain could be due to hepatobillary involvement
It is difficult to give time span because in some individuals this can stay for a longer time(may be years) without causing any harm while in others it can progress to decompensated liver disease within weeks. Most common cause of pain in right upper quadrant is involvement of hepatobillary channels and specifically gall bladder. I would suggest you to get LFTs & ultrasound abdomen done to confirm if there is any such involvement.
Workup for hepatobillary system will help
in that case pathology of gall bladder is ruled out. it would be helpful if you visit hospital so that specific investigations can be done to rule out exact cause. meanwhile avoid spicy food and drinks.
Itching & fatigue are due to liver infection
You should not loose hope because determination is an IMPORTANT factor in keeping you on track. Itching in fatigue are two common side effects in liver infection. You can discuss with your treating doctor to take cetirizine one at night for itching. It shows good results in itching. Your symptoms will improve automatically as soon as the infection settles.
Thank you and wishing you a very good & smooth recovery.
