British Liver Trust

Feeling gutted😢😢

Hi need some help, please have posted a few times before, so have now been diagnosed with cirrhosis, fatty, alcohol, hepc, (now clear), liver specialist have sed it is not pickled a great deal but have cirrhosis, also have a benign tumor in bile duct, serious high blood pressure. I have given up drinking although wine has been my heaviest alcohol drinks and have cut my diet and lost a stone up to now, I also have been diagnosed with diabetes. The problem is I have been told I am not a candidate for resection due to my numerous problems, am I doing right thing will I be able to go on list if I get healthier. Feel so down and lost about all this not feeling good, I worry about this tumor report sed although it is benign at the moment it can become malignant, but it still growing first tests was 4mm now its 10mm, had liver biopsy 2 weeks ago so you can imagine I have had a big shock, I am vomiting in mornings bright yellow bile, all becoming scary have I got any hope. thanks for reading, and your forum, gets worse when you feel your out on your own, never felt so lost and scared, still had no meds as Doctor sed she still has not received the report,

Hi Linda, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles ☹. I don't know if being healthier will get you on the list for resection but i think the healthier your lifestyle the better, it can only help your chances and it can only help your other conditions too. Sounds like the Drs are keeping an eye on the tumour so try and let that reassure you a little, I'm sure meds will be forthcoming too. You've already done so well in losing weight and cutting the booze, don't give up and lose heart now, you are never on your own as we're all on here in similar circumstances to listen and offer support. I'm sorry I don't have any answers, I just wanted you to know you aren't alone, I am listening even if my advice isn't too knowledgeable 😊 All the best, stacie. Xxxx

Thanks stacie, I'm a fighter but it's all to much sometimes, scary not knowing what to expect, and yes I have a lovley liver specialist, I can handle my liver problems it's the tumour that worries me, just wonder how healthy you have to be doc says I won't survive op, I thought that harsh but got no feedback how healthy I have to be. Thanks for replying, x

I can totally understand your fears Linda, i would be worried and scared too, it's understandable and that is harsh especially without any feedback or explanation. Maybe ask next time if your circumstances were to change health wise would it be an option then? Such as once youve got the diabetes and cirhossis under control and stable with diet and meds? Explain all the steps you've been taking and will continue to take regarding your health. You definitely need some more specific answers from them, they should explain their reasoning at least. I really hope you get them. Keep me posted, stacie. Xxxx

I know that’s all so scary, I have a hernia and a gallbladder full of stones but have been told that they can’t operate until either becomes an emergency! This is due to my cirrhosis! Keep trying to eat a healthy well balanced diet as loosing weight will really help all your conditions ( except the tumour but remember that’s benign!) good Luck xx

Hi linda ,.try not to worry if you can, i know easier said than done as i would be the same. You have great support there from your GP ! Mine would never think of ringing me .

One step at a time. As Stacie33 said , you have already done your part in staying healthy with no booze and good foods.. i have chronic liver disease and stage4 fibrosis with mild hepatic encephalopathy. Not to mention other problems.

You will get there ; you have a great hepatologist to keep a watch..take care and keep us posted. Love linda xx

Hi Linda, I don't know much about all this, but I do know what it's like to be on your own with your own thoughts and fears. I have fibrosis and hepc, and you have made me realise how much I owe this world, the higher power and this site and the caring people on it. I am thinking of you and praying you will get some answers and piece of mind. You keep your head right,and your chin up. The answers will come. Take care, friend, 🙏🌈🙋xxx
