Sarah, You're right they need to do more tests as they can't tell without doing a liver biopsy or a colonoscopy. I think I would ask to speak with a GI Dr. who looks after both the colon and the liver procedure. Also I would get a copy of his blood work and check out the liver enzymes the GGT, Alt. AST, Albumin and Bilirubin, PT, CBC,HCt, urea and creatinine and other blood test that a Hematologist would have to see him if they are high and see if these tests are outside the normal range. I know this must be distressing but there are many factors that have to be looked at here. Of course I'm not a Dr. but of course you need to see these Specialists to get a complete diagnosis. I hope everything is okay. Rest up this weekend as next week will be busy for both of you. Take care and praying everything will be alright. Sara
