Hi i'm Lynda, ive recently been diagnosed with cirrhosis, ive probably spelt it wrong.
I had a CT on my abdomen to check my bowel, and this was found. I also have a cyst on the liver and an enlarged spleen. Ive had an ultrasound, and it is very fatty, and enlarged.
I have been referred to a specialist by my gp, what happens next? What tests are they likely to do? My LFT was normal at the time. I did use to drink a fair bit, but i'm also obese so I guess it could be either that has caused it or both?
At the moment i'm just plain terrified, your stories on here are so brave and full of encouragement, thank you. Also I have Atrial Fibrillation of the heart so I'm on anticoagulants! I guess they will have to be stopped? Possible bleeds etc.
Anyway thanks for reading my post, and look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Lynda
