Thanks again for helping me.
There are five stages (F0: no scarring (no fibrosis); F1: minimal scarring; F2: scarring has occurred and extends outside the liver area (significant fibrosis); F3: fibrosis spreading and forming bridges with other fibrotic liver areas (severe fibrosis); F4: cirrhosis or advanced scarring)
Just to add being alive is a death sentence. Everyone dies of something. With having liver disease the goal is to die from something other than liver disease. Many people with liver damage, with care, can live a normal life span.
What has your doctor said is the cause of your fibrosis?
Well the big thing is f you can do something to prevent additional damage. Do you know the reason you are F3 fibrosis? If it’s alcohol related if you are able to stop drinking odds are in your favor you may see some reversal of your liver damage. Same goes for if the cause of your liver damage is from NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) if you are able to lose some weight, eat healthier and get some exercise as allowed by your doctor that can go a long way as well in giving your liver an opportunity to possibly heal.
Also, F3 is advanced fibrosis (liver scarring) a fibrosis score of F4 is liver cirrhosis.
I was diagnosed in January 2008 as F4 cirrhosis with liver biopsy and I’m still here still working. My cirrhosis was caused by being infected with hepatitis c probably for a total of 37 years. I had hep c for 30 years before I was diagnosed with cirrhosis
