ABM, I agree...you will be a valuable asset to this forum.
My gall bladder was also removed when they took the whole right side of the liver.
ABM, I am not seeking treatment at this time for the Hep C. I hear it is brutal and I'm basically still recovering from the last surgery (incisional hernia repair.) The surgeon had told me that if the remaining lobe of the liver gets cancer, I would then need a transplant. However, my hepatologist told me that they will keep a very close check on me with both CT and MRI scans, so if something is found it will be in the beginning stages and they can treat it.
Basically, I am just eating a very liver friendly diet--lots of fresh fruits and veggies and little meat.
