Having procedure today

Having procedure today

First, thank you all for the many lovely birthday wishes and blessings. We had a lovely day and finished it off with the most delicious triple chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream.


I did some blood work yesterday afternoon, more this morning, then report to radiology dept. at hospital at 12:30 for yet another paracentesis [draining of gut fluid]

{Paracentesis is a procedure to take out fluid that has collected in the belly (peritoneal fluid). This fluid buildup is called ascites.}

Todays tests are used for comparison of blood work #'s and some part of the fluid from my gut {I don't remember what the Dr. called it, I think the acronym was SAG} It helps to determine the amount of scarring {cirrhosis} on the liver without having to do a liver biopsy.

Still waiting for the GYN office to call with an appointment.

Wish me luck. I'll check in later today.

  • Hello everyone,

    So I reported to the radiology dept for my paracentesis and after preparing for the test the technician [Jen] could not find even a tiny amount of fluid. So, no test was done. I went home and called my doctor and let him know they found no fluid. He sent over an order for a fibroscan test which is non-invasive. I am scheduled for this test on July 7th.

    And so...now we wait.
