Hi friends, My husband recieved a call today about the biopsy. Good news,its not malignant. Thank God . He said to me he will now stop drinking since he's not going to die of breast cancer. This is one of the most assinine things I ever heard. I told him he is killing himself drinking. His response was I dont feel that I am,I told him I can see it. I just hope he stops drinking. The blood work he had drawn the other day, are all high(bilirubin,alkaline phosphate,pt/INR, and other liver fct. tests) His albumin,platlets,and segs. are low. I pray to God he stops drinking.He has a triple whammy against his liver,Hemochromatosis, hepc and alcohol.
I'm doing ok,just really tired. I took the week off work and I have'nt got off the couch. I even orderd take outs(healthy ones of course) I rented a couple of movies and watched tv. I'm actually alittle bored right now. I guess tomorrow I'll do something just to get out of this slump I'm in.
Connie, My hepatologist told me the general anesthesia can make my liver fail and I would need a transplant asap(which I probably would'nt get one on time) He said that gen.anesthesia makes your organs slow down and its very good chance it wont start working enough to survive. If I ever need surgery I will go to the University Hosp. where my G.I. DR. and the transplant team are. My G.I. said to go to local Hosp. and have them transport me by ambulance or if need be helicopter. I'm glad you didnt have any problems with your sugeries.
Take Care and God bless all,
