Three years ago I had a liver biopsy due to contracting hep c from a blood transfusion when I was 2, the results stated Stage 2, grade 1. I had decided to delay interferon treatment due to this diagnosis, and because I am 1A, which is 14 months of treatment and hard to get rid of.
Well, a few weeks ago I find out I'm Cirrhosis, Stage 4, Grade 3, can't get any worse than that.
I did some research to find that the first biopsy was done incorrectly. I am a single mother of two boys. Without me they have no one. Has this happened to anyone else? I plan on seeing an attorney about this. I should have been told that the first biopsy was fragmented and that I needed to get another. Was it an insurance issue? Why did the doctor's allow this to happen, I am *****d.
Also, the biopsy specimen was not large enough to even make an accurate diagnosis. In the research I've done anytime a liver fragments it is a sign of fibrosis or cirrhosis. Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone contacted an attorney due to a wrong diagnosis? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks. Sue
