I am 52 years old. In 1990 I had to have emergency gallbladder surgery because of a gallstone being lodged in the bile duct. Since then, I've been pretty healthy - except when I drink water I have diarrhea. I had told the doctor about this shortly after the surgery and he said that when you have your gallbladder taken out many people have trouble with diarrhea. So, I never mentioned it again. And, needless to say, I don't drink water much.
Well, the local Rotary Club sponsors a blood screening each year where you complete the tests, fill out a card that tells who your doctor is and they give him the results and then he, in turn, mails the card to you with either the "All blood levels within their normal limits" or "Please call my office, you have some adnormalities". Well, I received the second notice along with his handwritten note saying "liver abnormalities".
Well, I have never even drunk any alcohol, I have never smoked, and the better part of my adult life my blood pressure has been about 80 over 63. That is up until this last year, however, and now it is much higher 134 over
70. I have constant headaches (stress related, I thought) and I am extremely tired all the time. And, I just don't feel well - but I didn't feel bad enough to go to the doctor. I just figured he'd tell me that I needed to slow down - I have two jobs, two kids, three grandkids and a lot going on in my life is the norm.
And, to add to the scare, the doctor's office is closed. Can anyone tell me what the possiblities are for liver abnormalities.
