Dr. Stephen Cheng answered:

What are the signs and symptoms of cirrhosis besides yellow?

Quite a few

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
When cirrhosis is well established patients develop portal hypertension (high pressure in the veins in stomach, spleen, and intestines) and blood is shunted away from the liver. Patients then develop ascites (fluid build up in abdomen), enlarged spleen and low platelet count, encephalopathy (confusion), and varices (enlarged veins inside stomach and esophagus) which can lead to massive bleeding.

Dr. Stephen Cheng answered:

What are early signs & symptoms of primary biliary cirrhosis?

None

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
Early on primary biliary cirrhosis can be associated with little or no symptoms at all, just like many chronic liver diseases. As the disease progresses, however, many people start experiencing chronic fatigue & weakness, jaundice and itching (from bilirubin build up in skin), followed by complications of cirrhosis such as ascites & malnutrition.

Can vary

Cirrhosis can be asymptomatic in some but in others symptoms of decreased appetite, fatigue, feeling sleepy or confused (hepatic encephalopathy) can occur. Your liver doctor can help manage and control the above symptoms as they occur at different rates.
