DeeDee, I'm glad you are stable. It's common for hep C patients to also have splenomegaly (enlarged spleen.)
Do let us know the results of your labs and your future tests.
Connie, I had a voice message when I got home tonight from my transplant coordinator and she said she got my lab results and my new meld score is 9. It went up but only by 1, it was 8 last time, Still not bad. I didn't get the numbers from my lab results but when my Dr. calls I will get them from him. I will keep you posted and please keep me up to date on yourself.
I forgot the radiologist said I have small gastric varcies and some white marks in my pancreas,can be from me having pancreatitis years ago due to a injury. As far as the varices: I have esophegal varcies and I'm on prilosec so hopefully it doesn't get any worse. Any body have this ?and if so what was done for it?
DeeDee, thanks for keeping us updated. I do have to mention that in my case the AFP was never above 12, even when I had liver cancer. My labs have never reflected what is truly going on with me, in that they have never been sky-high. It's good that you are getting an MRI in July. Make sure that you get the contrast medium Gadolinium. It will light up cancer in the off-chance that there is any.
We have really warmed up here...into the high 60s and they are forecasting 78 for Sat. I'll believe it when I see it. However, our coldest months are usually Jan. and Feb., though what we recently experienced is not common--such a long stretch of below-freezing weather. It affected the strawberry and orange crops.
It sounds like the transplant center keeps a good eye on you, which is very important.
