I am aged 58 female, I have recently been told that the right side of my liver has virtualy packed in, but that the left side has enlarged to compensate this. My portal vien is blo ked. I have had my gall bladder removed at the age of 22 and have had regular blood test for the last 30 years and was told over 10 years ago that the bile duct was elarged. I went to see a consultant who told me not to worry and that it wasnt worth investigating the bile duct unless something more seriouse happend. He found the recent diagnosis by accident when he did a scan on a hernia, he now tells me the bile duct is stretched. Am I right to have little faith in this doctor or what? Meanwhile I have felt very tired and unwell for many years and still do.I go for days when all I can do is sleep because i feel lethargic and unwell, I feel that I have been treated as a hypochondriac and should pull myself together because theres nothing wrong with me. Should I change my doctor or is he right ?
