I"m off to the hospital

Well the day has finally come. I'm off to the hospital for my liver biopsy and oh my gosh, I am not looking forward to it, but know it has to be done. In fact I woke up sick yesterday and almost thought I was going to have to reschedule, but there was no way I wanted to go have through the anxiety of waiting for it AGAIN. So anyway, wish me luck and keep my seat warm here at mylot. Everyone have a fantastic day.

Its an outpatient surgery where they give you a sedative, but you are still awake, because you need to be able to breathe on your own. Then they anesthesize the area, put in a very long needle with the help of an ultrasound and then use that needle to guide several others to take pieces off of your liver. Doesn't sound too pleasant, does it? It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I'm sore and tired. Thanks for being my friend.

Good Luck Katherine and we will be waiting to hear that you are home safe and sound when you get over this procedure! I know how it feels to be all geared up for a procedure and the acute disappointment when it falls through for whatever reason so I am very pleased that you don't have to go through the run up again! xxx

Thank you for your prayers. The diagnosis has already been made, thats a certain at this point. Its just a matter of finding out how much damage has been done.

I have not recovered. I have a disease which may or not be curable. The results of the liver biopsy will determine how much damage has been done and then the doctor will decide whether or not to treat me. The chances of recovery are 50/50, but I hope things will be ok.

hi my best wishes to you hope its over soon and you are feeling much better also hope that the test is benign. the anxiety of waiting for a test like that is the pits and then waiting for the results too.I have been there twice and came out just great. Had the dreaded colonscopy and it was not all that awful the before prep was the worst but finding out that I was a ok was such a relief that I was glad I had gone through with it. I have these tiny little sacs in my colon as do many others and a lot of people do not even know they have them according to the doctor but I was one of the twenty percent that had some sort of inflammation in my intestines that caused bleeding all because I ate a lot of blackberries. the seeds evidently lodged in a little sac, caused inflammation and that caused the bleeding. To know that I did not have cancer nor any polyps was really worth the tests. so my best wishes hope you feel really great again

Unfortunately, its not cancer I am dealing with. The disease I have does effect the liver though and is the number one contributor to liver cancer. So its not a matter of whether I have the disease, at this point its how much damage has been done and whether or not to treat it now or wait. I'm glad yours turned out well, but what a horrible thing to have happened, especially just over blackberry seeds.
