Good afternoon Ian57,
Welcome to this friendly forum.
Sorry to hear you are not feeling so well.
I have included a link to the British Liver Trust publication on cystic disease .
Wishing you a speedy recovery,
I see that your cysts were not liver cysts but stomach cysts that burst and caused sepsis. Your medical team will need to know that the stomach has healed and probably monitor you for recurrent cysts. They will also need to find out what caused the cysts. A liver scan and blood tests should be able to determine whether any damage to your liver is permanent or temporary once the sepsis has been dealt with.
Hi there yea there are multiple cysts which the doctors dont want to touch for fear of causing further damage part of my liver is damaged i have been told to get the rest of my family tested so far 2 have come back with cysts although not as many as mine.
I have the same condition and in April something similar happened to me but the cysts were in my liver and I developed peritonitis because they believe some of the liver cysts had burst and caused a build up of fluid in my stomach. I was very unwell and nearly on the way to developing sepsis. I was told it can likely happen again as I have quite a few complex cysts.
Yes, I think if you look on your discharge report you might discover that the cysts were in your liver and past infected blood to your stomach which is what happened to me. This is extremely rare. They took 4 weeks to come up with the cause as they had never know it happen. I have an enlarged liver with a couple of cysts 10+cm which are complex and they want to drain and do something with so they can’t fill again. I have had cysts on a kidney which basically stopped working and has withered. My liver still is ok but the tube leading to the bile duct can block due to a cyst which can cause really bad stomach pain. Are you having scans to keep an eye on the liver cysts
What checks do you have, do you have to go to hospital?
I get my bloods checked every Friday morning, have to see my consultant once a month, have to monitor my temperature im pretty fortunate in that my wife is a A&E sister, thankfully im off antibiotics,
