In brief: It is what it is

I am going to assume you were found to have portal hypertension and that the endoscopic / clinical picture matches what we know of this uncommon entity.
Anything from Budd-Chiari portal vein occlusion to central hyaline sclerosis to a variety of other liver problems causing portal hypertension may be the explanation. These do not affect bloodwork. Ask for 2nd opinion if you're not fully satisfied.
