Ok I found something
Portal vein thrombosis is blockage or narrowing of the portal vein (the blood vessel that brings blood to the liver from the intestines) by a blood clot.
I think you might want to read up on portal vein thrombosis.
“ What are common risk factors of PVT?
Blood clots are more likely to form when the blood flows irregularly in the body. While doctors typically don’t know what causes portal vein thrombosis, there are a number of risk factors for developing this condition.
Some of the most common include:
inflammation of the pancreas
naval infection from the umbilical cord stump in infants
polycythemia, or excess red blood cells
cirrhosis of the liver
trauma or injury”
Have you done anything else that could harm your liver since you were cured of hep C back in 2008 like being overweight (Fatty liver disease) or drinking to excess? Is it possible your cure didn’t stick or you became reinfected with hep c?
If you didn’t have significant liver damage from hep c before your cure in 2008 and you remain cured and have nothing else causing liver damage I can’t see how you would have liver cirrhosis. Although there are other conditions that can also cause liver damage other than the ones I just listed.
What exactly did your ultrasound say? Cirrhotic appearance of the liver? Echogenic mass?
Ultrasound can give indications of cirrhosis but it’s not the final word on diagnosis of cirrhosis by any means.
Have you been followed since you were cured? Have you been having routine ultrasounds since you were cured?
Best of luck to you
