I went to see consultant on the 30th Jan about intrahepatic arterioportal shunt and the problems like odema scratching and bad moods. All he said to me was that blood for my liver came back normal and that he would write to my GP. O am left bewildered I mean what happens with this shunt,why am I still having a lot of pain the size of my stomach all I have been told are associated with my liver. What happens to this intrahepatic arterioportal shunt now. I don't know which way to turn or what to do now. Can any of yous suffering please tell me if I should get a second opinion please.
