Need more info: Stage 3 = bridging fibrosis (scarring of the liver) which is the stage before cirrhosis = stage 4, so stage 3 is not cirrhosis, however you could have had complications like fluid build up (ascites), confusion (hepatic encephalopathy), vomiting blood (esophageal varices) that might make your "stage 3" an underestimate (meaning you might be close to stage 4). Discuss with your liver doctor! ...Read more

I'm 22 months out liver transplant due to "cryptogenic cirrhosis" now have stage 3 fibrosis with bridging. No hepc. Lupus. Progression/prognosis?
Impossible to say: If you have stage 3 fibrosis in the new transplanted liver, that is certainly of concern. The lack of bridging (a precursor to cirrhosis) is encouraging. I am certain you have an entire transplant team available to you - these questions must be posed to your transplant doctors - surgeons, gastroenterologists and others who know your full history to get a meaningful answer, not my guessing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Husband has liver fibrosis bridging cirrhosis but stopped drinking. takes lactulose and stopped drinking three months ago.will disesase get better?
Hoping so!: I'm going to assume that alcohol is the sole cause, and that he's been checked for hemochromatosis, Wilson's, and hepatitis B and C. If he does choose to stop drinking, having a loving and forgiving wife will be the most wonderful support he can have. Cirrhosis does regress some on achieving sobriety. Hopefully his mind is still basically okay. Wishing you both the best. ...Read more

Four (4): Cirrhosis is typically staged from 1 to 4. End-stage typically means the liver is no longer compensating even with various medical interventions and prognosis is therefore worsening. Advanced stage might mean stage 3 (or even stage 2). In practice most physicians just use a clinical prognostic score to monitor severity (such as the meld or childs-pugh scores). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
