I went for a liver biopsy this morning. While I was able to drink water, I didn't eat. However, the bag filled twice with yellow liquid--just pouring out. My goodness--I got up to go home and almost passed out. They gave me some peanut butter and saltines. Then, we got a few cookies. A few minutes later, I had to have my husband pull the car over in a rest stop--I almost blacked out! And the bag was full of liquid again.

Now, I've a hamburger, some broth and pastina, some lactose free pudding, and pita chips---no output and my left side hurts.

What is going on????

Sammies, why did you have to have your liver biopsied? I missed that.

That's what was happening to me when I was sick with the stomach flu.
The yellow tint to the liquid is probably bile. If you weren't eating, it probably was flushed right out. (Like when you vomit yellow-bile)

Are you still hurting on your left side?

Chassity--My liver functions were way up all of a sudden. Had been fine in December. Second round of blood work indicated need for biopsy. GI says it's one of three possible scenarios all of which can be linked to crohn's.

My left side did calm down once the fluids kicked in. Took a lot of fluids and food--I must have lost a lot.

thanks for asking about me.

Sammies--sorry to hear you had another difficult time. When do you get your results?

Take is easy, remember you had to start to heal from a 'depleted' situation and your body is having a hard time getting back on track...you WILL be okay! Just take the time...even if it is longer than everyone else...I know for me it was more than 3 months before I felt like doing anything and I was 'healthier' (so to speak) before my surgery. I felt like I was so far behind everyone else's recovery and I was a wuss....but I wasn't, it was just how my body healed.

Keep us posted!

I had a similar experience awhile back. Filled the bag, and I mean FULL of liquid four times inside an hour, I was getting pretty pissed off having to empty so often lol. Turned out to be the flu, so I guess that was my diahrrea. Was fine the next day, no probs since.
