Re: Enlarged Liver - Help?
when they did your US was there ANY other findings there within that liver like enlarged or dilated bile ducts or anything else besides "just' the liver being enlarged? generally when they do the abdominal US, they usually check all the main ducts and also how well bloodflow actually is thru the main arterys and the portal vein within that liver too using that doppler tool? was this a full abdominal US or just looking at your liver only? do you actually have a copy of your own report or were you simply 'told' by your doc what some of that report actually stated? trust me here when i say that you really DO always need to make certain you obtin your very own copies of any and all testing reports done on you along the way just so you can read thru them yourself and just have them for your own records. many many docs, espescially specialists for some sick reason, just do NOT always tell any given patient about ALL findings that are even found in the reports. i have my own theories on the whys there, but just make certain to ALWAYS obtain your own copies.
considering that the actual reason for the enlargement and pain is kind of an "unknown' at this point, it would be kind of hard to really tell you just what would be the most effective way to treat this pain. what does that pain feel like to you? when my son was having ALOT of pain from his liver failure which would give him pain kind of centered more in the middle of the upper quads, we simply used ice packs over the area. he said it worked really well for that pain. it may help you too. anything is worth a try here ya know? what have you actually tried so far? has anything you tried actually worked or helped?
