Re: Focal Nodular Hyperplasia
This is a wonderful thread, I am new to this site and hope to hear some good news from people who have had successful removal of live adenoma. Like you, I had elevated ALT levels in my blood and 2 weeks later have just had my first consultation with a liver surgeon. He has requested for me to go to have a MRI in the next few days to distinguish whether I have adenoma or FNH. Unfortunately however he thinks it is adenoma. I have been off bcp for 2 months, hoping to have our first child, the elevated ALT came up in pre pregnancy blood screening and luckily I have a gp who is on the ball. On all accounts the mass in my liver is very large but I think the surgeon wants to wait 1 month to see if it gets smaller since going off the pill, the scary thing is not knowing how long it has been there for. I am very scared about surgery as I am perfectly healthy and am worried how long it will take to recover. Like everyone else, it is great to be in contact with others with a similar condition. Hoping for a reply. Thanks.
