I popped into the GP today for a smear test and asked the nurse if they had the results of MRI I had done at end of November. They don't like to send me my results from the hospital. The MRI was done to investigate the shrinking left lobe of my liver, I have been diagnosed with cirrhosis on account of alcohol abuse.
The letter says "MRI has shown that the left lobe of the liver is smaller compared to the right. It has also shown an ill defined subcapsular area in the right lobe of the liver within segment VIII and IVa. This showed some peripheral enhancement in the arterial phase and becomes homogenous on venous and delayed sequences. It is the impression of the reporting radiologist that his may be an area of underlying cholangiopathy (PSC)
I have referred her to my heaptologist colleague Dr etc"
It sounds a little confusing, I have an appointment with the heaptologist on 7 February, Any ideas what this means in plain english and what sort of questions I should ask.
I am doing all I can to lead a healthy lifestyle, abstinent for nearly 8 months, I just ache a lot and get very tired. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
