Had a CT scan done of my chest and a stress test. Both came back abnormal even though EKG was normal. Anyway, the heptologist said I could have liver cancer, and the abnormal stress test could mean I had a heart attack. So, I had an appointment with the cardiologist. HE said the stress test was sporious. False. But to make a diffinitive diagnosis I would need to have an angiogram. So one was scheduled. Got to the hospital (which is 3 hours away), went in and was getting prepped for the procedure when a doctor came in and told me they couldn't do the procedure! The reason being is because my platelets are at 58, and my INR is 1.9. It was explained to me that if they went ahead with the procedure, I could bleed internally and that would be it! So, they are waiting for my transplant coordinator to schedule me to go to the hospital to spend the night so they can give me frozen plasma and then do the procedure the next morning. My fear is that the transplant doctor is going to think that I am too high of a risk for a transplant.
I hope and pray not, but he may very well do it.

Hang in there... take a deep breath and wait for the results... take it one thing at a time... don't let the mental part of all this overtake you... I know that's hard...but it's what you have to do... is someone helping you?? do u have a significant other?? it would help to sort out pieces and for advocacy purposes... take it one step at a time.. thoughts and prayers are with you...

Hi siloamsandy,  glad to hear from you.   I know that you are frightened but just try to relax and wait for the testing and the results........I know it's hard.... but worrying doesn't do any good.   It's a good thing that the doctor was on top of things and canceled it.  
Keep busy if you can to take your mind of it.   Let us know when your test takes place and we will send extra prayers your way.......Take care......thoughts and prayers.

Thank you both for your thoughts and prayers. I have accepted whatever comes my way. If the doctor decides to or decides not to do the transplant, I know that it is for the best in the long run. GOD has something else in mind for me. HE'll let me know what it is in His time.
