Topic: Liver Resection a "No Go" - Feeling pretty down
Hello Everyone, I was released from hospital today after having the liver resection aborted on Monday. The left lobe that was supposed to regenerate is filled with cirrhosis. I have never drunk or smoked ever, and we're all including the doctors just stunned. It could be that I'm genetically predisposed to a fatty liver condition, and my eating habits may have influenced that or who knows? The surgeon said something about checking for a hepititis background, but I sure don't forsee that. I'm a teacher, and we're always checked. The CAT scans I have had never showed any sign of this plus the surgeon also found ascites in my abdomen area which did not show on the scan. This is the first time I've ever had any fluid retention there. Now we're waiting until Friday to hear what the biopsy on the fluid says. We're back to no plan. I am just so sad and am losing heart. I hope that Wables husband did get his surgery and resection was successful.
My prayers for all of you,
