I am a 57 year old male, after a few years with oedema in my legs I suddenly became short of breath and my abdomen is swollen and solid. went to see my GP and have been caught up in a whirlwind of tests and specialist vists. Noboby will actually tell me what they are looking for but one let slip that he thought I showed signs of Cirrhosis.
A little scared at the moment because I have never experienced the NHS working at such a furious speed before, blood tests, xrays, ultrasounds and now some sort of major scan is be arranged.
I dont drink, so Cirrhosis seemed a total shocker to me.
I am over weight, type 2 diabetic. January tests were all normal HpA1C, liver function, blood pressure, cholestrol. So I am totally confused and started looking here for answers. read a lot of your posts and it would seem I am likely in the right place.
I am waiting for some more results, I am a little worried about telling my wife as I don't want to worry her, but your own brain can be a lonely place at night.
