I've been waiting two weeks to find out what my Onc & SN are going to do about abdo pain. Some of it is due to a narrowed colon but the bit I want to ask you about is a dilated Common Bile Duct (CBD). I though about posting on the LIver Trust site but I though I'd try here first. I do have metastases on the liver capsule, but not IN the liver, and it's under control. I've been through chemo, debulking, chemo & am now on Avastin and some of my abdo pain may be due to adhesions but here's the mystery :-
A recent CT Scan showed a CBD dilated to 16mm (which is bordering on the severe) but no gallstones, and I've never had them or bile or gall bladder problems in the past. The liver enzymes in my blood show ALT 81, ALP 471 and GGT 609 - all very high, but bilirubin is normal and I'm not yellow or vomiting - I just have really bad abdominal pain right across my diaphragm; I'm often doubled over with it and feel a bit nauseous, but I'm still able to eat small meals and not ill enough for hospital.
Any ideas? The not knowing is driving me potty!
