I have been under investigation for approx 6 months due to a routine blood test showing inflammation of the liver. I was advised to take myself to hospital as it was so high. The hospital suspected an infection picked up on holiday but with no real improvement over the months they now suspect AIH and in dec ordered a liver biopsy to confirm diagnosis. (Ultrasound conducted early on was fine.) Also prescribed prednisolone which has reduced the inflammation,now on just 5mg per day.
The ultrasound guided biopsy was two wks ago and still no results. In the last week I have been experiencing a dull ache on my right side and am now convinced that there is something else wrong: pancreas issues, cancer, etc.
Apart from that I have been fine: no nausea, no weight loss, appetite normal. Hopefully results will be in soon but I am starting to panic. Has anyone had a similar experience? Would they know by now if it was cancer eg surely they can detect this on blood tests? Just worried as to why I am aching suddenly despite only two days of initial discomfort after the biopsy.
Feeling miserable after 6 months of waiting and fingers crossed for some positive news and some firm answers.
Thanks in advance. X
