Hi everyone, I've been a bit quiet lately but have been reading all the posts it's just that I've had a few problems, not liver related. Family and personal stuff. I last posted that I was due to see hepatologist and went last Monday. Got told I'm being closely monitored for liver cancer - doppler scan appointment arrived few days after. I asked about biopsy and was told not yet it's just that my liver is very cirrotic and has nodules and lesions so just more regular scans. Also, at long last once the hepatologist has received written confirmation that I do not have asthma from my GP he will put me on a drug to lower portal pressure. The clinic was very busy and I went on my own so didn't get chance to ask anything much. So, as it stands I have a grossly disstended bladder, acute bladder retention and cirhossis which is progressing it seems at a speedy rate considering I only had a scan 2 months ago and have to go already for another. I'm posting as so many of you have been so kind asking me to let you know how I got on. I've taken great comfort from the recent posts of such bravery from so many of you who are much worse than me and I am grateful for the amount of liver I still have working. The kindness and sound advice on here is remarkable.
Thanks all of you
