I'm so so so relieved. I knew you were probably hurting and hopefully doped up. You want to make sure it clots up so you don't hemmorhage, and if you have any bleeding issues I imagine they really make you stay down. Not that I wanted to move at all. It's like being stabbed deeply, which is exactly what it is, with no sedation, because if you don't move your lungs, they can get lung tissue. I know my doc did mine sitting and made me sit still there in so much pain while he checked to make sure he didn't get any lung or any other non-liver tissue. I'm so so so glad it's benign. I was so so so worried. Lumps in the liver are never good and you had two. Hopefully, they will be able to leave the lump in and do nothing, people with cirrhosis can have like half their liver or more totally scar tissue and they just keep on going, many don't even know. In my liver, every cell is as full of fat as it can be and I suspect the thin edge has some fibrosis, but most of the time my liver levels are normal, but I do really watch what meds I take. The liver does heal, and ALT being high is a sign that it is healing. Perhaps if they get better control of your scleroderma it will go away, or maybe its in a place that gets repeatedly irritated and they can stop whatever gi problem is irritating it and it will heal. I had atrophy of the heart that healed when I got on plaq, and the docs didn't tell me it would, but after it did they told me it does happen if you can stop the irritation to it. Im just so so so glad. I was really worried. It just wasn't the same here without you!
