New to this, would be grateful for advice. I chased up some tests for a liver ultrasound, I had done in March, neither my GP or myself were given the results. It transpired they had never been sent, as a result I was given a very quick appointment with a consultant in mid July. He told me I had cirrhosis, I should have been called in previously and needed further blood tests Hep C & B, some kind of liver data test and a Gastroscopy. The latter is booked for 7 August. My concern is that my GP surgery have received no results of the blood tests, (I check my medical record online)j.
As I have abused alcohol, I am sure it is alcohol related. I have not drank since 2 May, (not a drop). I have been extremely thin for about a year, which I blamed on Anorexia. I am now getting my BMI up eating well and doing some exercise. I feel much better, but have awful pains through all my joints. Blood tests show nothing, even my LFTs are normal, I take no medication apart from Thiamin, Strong Vit B & Vit D. The consultant said my aches and pains were not to do with the liver problem, the GP said they probably were. The pains have been going for about 6 weeks, itches for a few months. I had cellulitus in both my ankles/lower legs in May, which was treated with antibiotics, it took a while to clear. Thank you if you read this and have any advice.
