OK Folkestone, new and still in shock. i was sentirely to gynaecological as I had symptoms of ovarian cancer, one of which was ascites. I was urgently admitted to acute medical (told at the time I had cancer somewhere due to raised ca125 but later told not).
So had the ascites drained 4.6 litres, had an ultrasound which they said was clear, liver normal size etc, had a ct which they said was clear then 24 hours later they said showed diffuse fatty infiltration with a simple cyst present.
My lfts showed AST 48, GGT 155, ALP NORMAL AT 132, INC 1.1 LOW ALBUMIN 27 AND PROTEIN 56. ASCITES FLUID SHOWED 30 POLYMORPHS AND NO ORGANISMS.
I'm going to have a liver biopsy through the jugular vein. has anyone had This?
Are my lfts that bad? how can ultrasound consultants x 2 and ct specialty x1 come up with different findings on the fatty liver to the last ct consultant? why do I need a biopsy when this is what the ct Says? could it be worse than fatty liver if that is what the ct says it is?
I'm so confused, was given different information by each of the 9 drs I saw and am really scared.
Did anyone else experience applying stigma and behaviour of staff? when asked how much I used to drink and told the truth (1 to 2 bottles wine a day) the Dr came back with surely you mean whisky. I felt bullied and harassed not to mention the monumental technical cocktail ups by nursing staff.
Can anyone help me?
