    Anyone have AIH & PCB ?

    Hi newbie here, has anyone experienced AIH & PCB together ?

    Was diagnosed 10 years ago and only took Urso for a month. I moved and new Dr would not give prescription because my blood work looked o.k. and stayed very low fir 10 years.

    Recently I had an issue with blood in urine with clots for about 6 hours, went thru all testing and it was not bladder cancer. I continued to feel ill and a couple months later was admitted to hospital and it was found my gallbladder was only working @4%, so they removed gallbladder.

    While in hospital my AST & ALT #'s continued to rise, at time of surgery they did liver biopsy.

    The local pathologist sent it to Johns Hopkins ant it came back consistent with AIH and Overlapping PCB. Had ASMA came back high but ASN came back negative. Local ohysian says this does not make sense ?

    Anyone have similar experuence ?
