my son son is still in final diagnosis stage All we know at this point is that he has a non alcohol cirrhosis of the liver and has this ascites issue.
he has had 1 bout of fluid drained we are still waiting for liver biopsy results and he has been told to go to ward as his acites is bad again tomorrow morning for it to be drained
We haven’t had the appointment through about his results and we don’t want them telling him randomly during this visit – as they will maybe assume he knows.
I think maybe his records will have been updated with the biopsy results before he has seen the consultant. Should he tell them when he arrives that he hasn’t had the biopsy appointment through and wants someone there if they are going to discuss his results?
he knows that I am going to the appointment with him as we need to understand exactly what he is facing.
Also his dad is going to talk to him today, he has an odour about him which he never had before, he needs to tell the Dr tomorrow in case it is relevant to what he is going through, as his mum I am devastated that we even have to mention it to him but am worried in case its all related to the liver issue?
has anyone come across the smell unsure if it is related to the fluid its a offensive smell but not like body odour?
any suggestions to make sure they dont tell him results without someone being there ?
