Reply to "Abnormal Liver Chemistries- Testing?"

Still Standing,

Thanks for your informative post. I definitely am not taking this lightly and intend to pursue whatever testing is ordered on me. My Doctor mentioned various tests but also said we would first meet and have an appointment to discuss them. He wants to determine what is causing the sudden elevation. Keep in mind I have been on a my current medication regimen for a while now and we just recently saw a spike so he wants to know what is causing the spike and so do I. I hope it’s not PSC, but if it is I would rather know sooner than later. 

If I may be honest I have been waiting a long time for the other shoe to drop and always believed I might one day have liver issues due to the myriad and extensive drugs I have bombarded my body with to fight IBD and have a reasonable quality of life. I have never been planning to live to be an old man and have lived my life accordingly. This may sound harsh or fatalistic, but to me it’s just living in reality and knowing what the possibilities are. 

What kind of sedation was given in your second liver biopsy? Similar to conscious sedation for a pouch scope?
