Hi, after being under gastroenternology consultant for five years for my cirhossis, I have my first appointment at long last with a hepatologist next month. I am quite nervous and would appreciate it if any of you could tell me what to expect from this appointment. I dont know how long I will have with him, what he will do or what can he do on the day etc. Usually I just have to lie down, breathe in and have my liver squeezed and then Im out the door without much chance to speak. I had to beg my last gastro before he left his job for a scan for bowel problems which he reluctantly agreed to which revealed dilated varicies which Ive had banded thank goodness. Wishing you all well and any advice much appreciated. Ive had a swollen stomach for months now and on maximum duiretics to no avail so Im hoping he can fix that at least.
