Topic: More bad news for me
So I went to have my ultrasound today so they could plot the attack of the liver biopsy. Well unfortuantely my liver enzymes are up and they will be placing an external catheter so my liver can drain. So puff went my hopes of this "spot" being scare tissue or a gallstone. I am 33 years old and I am going to have a drain put in. I am so angry and scared. Today, I broke for the first time the cardinal rule of not crying in front of the doctor. I am a mess. Just imagine all these uptight Swedes trying to calm and comfort me-added to the fun mix was the language barrier. My husband is away on business and this is the first time I have done something like this on my own. Eventually, the ultrasound doctor called my lovely primary doctor who sat with me (I think he was prepping for surgery as well!) and tried to explain things as best as he could. Explainations sometimes dont help when the news isnt so hot, but bless him for trying.
I have called my parents and blubbered all over the phone and now I have to have the same conversation with my husband when he comes home. What a day. I just dont understand how I can feel so well, better than I have since this ride started and yet it is back and i need a drain??!?!?
