I am 34 years old and had an abdominal CT done in December because Ive had a "heavy" feeling on the right side of my abdomen for months. The CT results showed that there is a small amount of
ascites along the caudal tip of the right hepatic lobe but cause is not
shown. I was referred to a Gastroenterologist and met with him a few days ago. He wants to go an ultrasound to get more info... he didnt seem that concerned, but I am freaking out a little.... I have no idea what could cause this. I am not able to get an ultrasound until 2/17 and my follow up with the Doctor wont be until mid March because he is going on vacation. I have been googling what causes ascites and it is causing me to panic even more. I rarely drink, have never used any IV drugs, do not have Hepatitus... I did smoke daily for about 15 years but have since quit... Please gve me some insight on what you think this could be. My platelet count was a little low. (128k) and my thyroid levels were also just a little below average. I have a 3 year old and am so scared of this being cancer or soemthing really bad, Any advice/thoughts are appreciated...
