Stu! Hang in there, man!
I was diagnosed with F4 cirrhosis. I surmised it was compensated since I did not have jaundice, acites, varices, etc.
One year post SVR, I had a Fibroscan performed with an average reading of 6.1 kPa. I am now told that I am stage F1.
I will go back in a year for another Fibroscan.
I have read about folks who have experienced reversal of compensated cirrhosis.
And I hear you on the feel good. It's great to be rid of the HCV anxiety.
