I haven't even been able to get a referral to a hep - several declined the consult. My GI states that two Fibroscans and a contrast CT rules out liver damage (I got the third one on my own after freaking out more about
In his defense I have looked up studies and it appears to be 90-95% accurate in detecting cirrhosis - two of those plus such a low score and completely normal contrast CT makes all this seem rather confusing and strange.

Total Protein: 70
I've gone through two PCPs so far. The first one took me to two internists - both ruled out stuff. My second PCP got me to a GI who did a very thorough workup, but I just can't stop googling and researching and seeing all of these tests come back making not a lot of sense.
What do you guys think of my concerns? Are they valid? Could by some error that so many imaging studies and fibroscan missed cirrhosis?
Trying to find another PCP to refer me to a hepatologist is going to be exhaustive, but I can't stop thinking about
all of my results and which ones might be right or wrong...
