Question: HUGE liver

 hockeycatgirl - Tue Sep 27, 2005 8:20 pm

After having numerous tests(CT,upper and lower GI,ultrasound,HIDA scan) I have a huge liver and a borderline enlarged spleen. My bloodwork comes back normal, and everything seems normal EXCEPT for chronic fatigue I've dealt with for almost 5 months and nausea. Ugh!! I've had some stomach pain and my dr gave me nexium-that gets rid of the pain. I can't get into a gastro until late October. AAAAAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!! Ideas anyone???

Exactly what labwork have you had done?

I can't remember all of the tests,but i think i know most of them. I've had a lot done.
ANA-negative or normal
liver function-normal
kidney function-normal
tumor markers-normal
sed rate-normal

Let's see-I think that covers it. I had complete metabolic panel-i think that's the liver function. Anyhow,I don't know the numbers but my dr told me i was midrange on everything and the things that should be negative were. Hope that helps!!
