Re: Inflamed Liver
just exactly what "tests' did they do that determined the inflammed liver,blood? do you have all your test results and records from that visit in your possession? if not,get them yourself so you can actually see for yourself just what the doc there used to determine this. you DO most definitely need to follow up with your own primary since something is obviously out of the norm with that liver. your chest pain may have or may not have been from just anxiety alone. it could be becaseu of whatever is actually causig the liver inflammation. the list of possible conditions that could do that is quite long so getting to your own doc really is the best way to go here.
i am kind of suprised they had you actually come back to an urgent care for bloodwork/test results. in most situations like this,they would just forward any real hard fidings to your primary and THEY would contact you to come in. just a bit odd. doing things this way just kind of scares you and then also places you kind of in limbo as far as really getting any good answers so you have to come to a place like this just do get info,ya know? your own primary should just have been the one to give you this kind of info only to aviod what is happening right now,and it also would have allowed you two to arrange further testing and work out a treatment plan and also just being able to simply ask your own doc important questions.
have you set up an appt with your own doc for a follow up to really find out whats causing the inflammation in your liver? if not,do is on monday so you two can meet and really find out just where you are at with regards to the liver. another set of bloodwork should aslo be run as well. there is simply 'something' that is casueing that inflammation to even be there right now that has to be found out and any real treatment can begin. when it comes to the liver being inflammed there are just so many different possibile reasons(alot of GI issues from organ dysfunction or even a stone in a bile duct or gall bladder could casue this) that just have to be tested and ruled out til you hit on that culprit. just see your own doc and make sure you get all and any records(including all test results) from the urgent care visit. then keep copies of any further test results too for your own records as well. this just helps to really stay on top of our conditions espescially when they are an ongoing or chronic type of condition.
hope the reasons for this are pretty basic,but you wont know anything for certain til you see your doc for HIS consult and discuss this in further detail. i do wish you luck with this. please keep me posted. Marcia
