i got my lab tests results back and apparently i tested positive for the smooth muscle antibody...and my ALT/AST were back up again. so my dr now says i have to have the biopsy to rule out
anyone have any info on autoimmune hep? or a good website?
my doc is going to give me iv sedation for the biopsy so i am happy about that. i am going to wait until i'm done teaching for the summer, so i won't do the biopsy until july. i'm not sure what that means as far as delaying tx, but I told my dr it wasn't an option to have it now.
