Maybe some of you read my first posts. OK, to keep the story short. Last December I lost my flying medical because the doc saw my LFT results and having a high ggt he saw only one thing, he said I had alcohol issues. I tried to explain the results had been high but stable for years but no, in his eyes I was an alcoholic.
Anyway after a few visits with specialists at the aviation authority I was beginning to believe the bullshit myself even though I knew it couldn't be alcohol related. Last week I saw a liver specialist and spent 1k on blood tests and 1k on all sorts of scans. Know what? Yesterday I find out my liver is absolutely fine!!! I've been led to believe for years that my younger years of excess have taken its toll. Nope. Guess what it is yet??? I have 4 very large gallstones !! Liver has no signs of any distress at all and it's been checked twice because I didn't belive the first scans. The radiographer even said she wished she had my liver! ( maybe she was related to Hannibal?)
Anyway, long and short of it is that I'm having my gallbladder removed. See surgeon wed eve. So please, just because you have high LFT results, just make sure you have a scan which also looks at the gall bladder. I'm one of the lucky ones but I've lived with worry for many years.
