My husband is going in for an ERCP test and liver biopsy to determine why he is having symptoms of jaundice
itching, pain under rib cage, lower back pain nausea, fatigue chills vomiting.
His dr. stated sclerosing cholangitis is associated with people that have ulcerated colitis and
after researching this disease it seems to be rare not common and prognosis is grim.
Does anyone that has this or know someone can give me feedback?
I am suspected, but not yet diagnosed. Done ERCP, Liver Biopsy, been to Mayo etc. Check our www.pscpartners.org for some of the best psc info I have found.
By the way MRCP seems to be a less invasive way to dx PSC. Is this an option vs. ERCP?
Good luck and keep us posted. By the way, how old is he? Seems to be a common age window where psc emerges. Late 30's off the top of my head...
