My GI called me personally tonight with results from sonar performed Fri. He told me that I had enlarged spleen which is typical with cirrhosis but my tests "sonar and blood work" looked good. He told me that my liver should function close to normal now and told me to gradually stop taking my diuretics. I'm to weigh myself daily and to check for swelling and to call him if theres any problem. I thanked him and his team of Dr.s for saving me! I'm schedulled to return every 6 mo. to check for liver cancer which makes me very paranoid!!! It will be 3 yr.s this Aug. since my failure. 13 days sicu and 27 days total in hosp. I've been eating,exercising and living right! I cant take any antiflamitory meds for my osteo arth. but have pain meds. I had my kidney tumor removed in April. Next is going to neurogist for numbness and extreme burning pains in feet before I have major foot surgery.
I want to thank everyone who has helped me here and those who took there time reading my posts. I havent posted much but I appreciate yor time! I'm not going to stop reading H.W. and will be back here reading,learning and praying!!!
Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!
