Had scan, liver looks fine. She says no cirrhosis. So bloods and scan clear, hope I can relax a bit now, might have Fibroscan at a later date, but she would have seen shape of liver today wouldn’t she?
Scan results: Had scan, liver looks fine... - British Liver Trust
British Liver Trust
I’ve got high bilirubin. My US scan was fine and was told my liver looked normal, but I was referred to the liver clinic where they sent me for an MRCP for a more detailed look. Just waiting on results now.
You should be very happy with that! What scan was it? X
That's good news, hopefully it will give you peace of mind, so happy for you xx
Great news 👏 👍! Relax now xxx
Great. No surprise there. So no need for any more unnecessary worrying just enjoy living a happy healthy life now 🌞
Felt relieved until people on here say cirrhosis can’t be detected on US. Then fear starts again.
I would have loved to hear what you had been told. Post transplant my blood results are good but not perfect and I am delighted because I have a good chance of a long term survival.
Stress and anxiety is detrimental to your health, in your case, it will most likely cause you major problems, long before you have any liver issues.
I seriously suggest that you seek advice on how to deal with stress and anxiety, instead of taking up valuable resources.
Thank you, I am in an anxiety state. I have a terrible taste in my mouth and bowel habit has changed. Wish that would resolve itself then I could move on. Feel a bit shaky when I wake up. Did you before TP? By the way we’ll done on getting your own life back.
If I went through all my symptoms of dealing with end stage, decompensated, cirrhosis, it would be a lengthy essay. I am however a carer for someone who is bipolar and suffers greatly with anxiety. She has all the symptoms that you are describing.
Morning! I get this nearly every morning when I wake up too. This is because I have too much adrenaline due to my stress/anxiety levels. I do not have liver disease, but my husband is critically ill with it. If he had scan/blood results like yours i would be dancing for joy. Please try the forum for anxiety and depression, I've been on there and had a look round - it seems quite good. I hope this helps put things in perspective for you. I honestly don't think this forum is doing you any good, its fuelling your anxious state.Wish you luck xx
This exactly where I’m at, I came away from my ultrasound feeling like a weight was lifted then looked on here and saw a ultrasound doesn’t stand for much and bang I’m back to square one with worry 😔😔
Ultrasound stands for a lot. I was quite happy that my results were ok. The person scanning and the team that review scans know what they are doing and how to interpret results. The are very thorough. Staying off the drink and eating healthy is the key to reduction of worry about liver issues x
Ultrasound is an excellent tool, it will pick up changes in tissue density (echo texture) can define the shape of the liver and in any sort of serious liver disease both the shape and the texture of the liver are markedly different. Sometimes searching these forums just fuels your anxiety and leads to more symptoms.My hubby has had probably 20 ultrasounds since 2012 to monitor his conditon and every single one has picked up his cirrhotic tissue.
If doctors have ok'd your scan you have to go with that - scans are reviewed by very highly qualifed doctors then the liver doctor too. If none of us were to trust the results of tests we'd never be out of the doctors surgery.
It was the scanner who said she saw no cirrhosis or lumps and bumps. Don’t know whether doc will contact me.
Honestly.... your irrational anxiety is going to put you in an early grave not cirrhosis. Are you on the anxiety forum? I really do urge you to get some help for it. It's a very unhealthy way to live. Good luck
Anxiety and physical symptoms.
I think this graphic highlights where lots of symptoms that people are experiencing and assuming are liver related (even with all clear scans, bloods etc) are actually more likely to be anxiety related. HEALTH ANXIETY is a real condition, the stress from it DOES cause physical symptoms but in light of all liver tests being clear their cause doesn't relate to the liver.
This is not just to you worriesalot but to several current posters who have got the most wonderful all clear results (that all the liver patients here would be delighted with and rejoice in) and are yet still convincing themselves they have something related to the liver. Many of the physical symptoms being described can be caused by the constant anxiety and questioning of perfectly good results.
That's great news about your scan. Like the other members have suggested, maybe now is the time to get some support with your anxiety?
