Anyone with NASH/hepatic fibrosis



Recommended Posts

So, the biggest reason I had my Loop DS was because I was diagnosed with NASH and hepatic fibrosis in January. They say it's reversible, but I worry a lot since my liver already has scarring. The good news is, my liver enzymes were about double what they are now before surgery, so hopefully it's improving.

My question is for any of you who might have this condition and are farther along in your surgery than me. Did your NASH reverse?

I don't have NASH, but I just wanted to say that it's very common for liver enzyme levels to increase after surgery, but then they normalize (for most of us, anyway) when we're a year or so out. Reason being is that rapid weight loss is really hard on livers...

Thank you, that's good to know. I had hoped they'd be less by now. They're about the same as when I had surgery, but half what they were before.
I did have a follow up appointment with my surgeon today, and he said my liver actually looked pretty good when he was in there. When I had my gallbladder out in January, that surgeon said my liver looked really bad, so my efforts must be helping!
