My mother is having neuroendocrine cancer in gall bladder metastasis to liver . One week back jaundice came to my mother , and when the ERCP is done, the doctor said that there is no obstruction inside the metallic stent and when the MRCP is done next there multiple cholangitis in the several right lobes(5,6,8) of the liver with micro abscesses along with inflammations and there is one large lesion of about 3.8 cm in sixth lobe. Doctor also said that the liver is enlarged and my mother also has esophagus varices of grade 3 saying that there is liver cirrhosis .
Currently my mother is undergoing capcetabine 500mg chemo tablet 3 times a day . The reason doctor said for the cholangitis in liver is due to the tumor in the livers I want to know whether the reason my doctor said is correct or my mother is having primary scelerosing cholangitis ?
when we took the PET CT scan on june it stated that " there is inhomogeneusly increased FDG uptake in the right lobe of the liver corresponding to patchy enhancements and peripherally enhancing lesions in the segment 8 - likely cholangitc abscesses " . my mother is having enlarged abdomen and bilirubin 10.5 and ALP is 426 and urine is dark in color and eye is yellow . If you want to know additional details, please let me know
