Hi there, I think im on here for a bit of reassurance.
Last year I started experiencing pain to my left side which travelled up to below my rib cage. I went to the doctors who first thought it was IBS and sent me packing, a few months later I went back and told him how this pain is getting worse and he said he would sent me for an Ultra Sound and some blood tests just to do a full MOT on my body.
My ultra sound scan results came back with the receptionist on the phone (not the dr) advising me that there was fat in my liver, she didnt say how much or anything, I was surprised the Dr didnt speak to me about it. I then arranged to have a blood test done in the doctors. I phoned the doctors yesterday and again was greeted by the receptionist on the phone saying to me that they want to do more blood tests as they werent satisfied with my liver results.
They said I have to have a liver function blood test, a Vitamin D blood test and a Hepitius Screening! I am panicking beyond belief because Ive been reading up on all kinds of things releating to Hepititus and its scaring me big time
Im 29 years of age, reasonably healthy, ok I have a drink now and again as everyone does but I dont know if its related to that. I was reading things which can cause Hepititus and Ive been very careful with things.
Am I worrying over nothing? Are the doctors doing this to cover their backs? Has anyone has a Hepititus screening before??
