I saw my GP on Monday (3 days ago) and he tried to reassure me that I do not have cirrhosis.
However, I have continued to feel very unwell - as well as being very worried about the visible physical symptoms that developed on 30 August (now mostly gone).
So, I arranged a private upper abdominal ultrasound (including the liver) today.
I told the radiographer about the binge-drinking, elevated liver enzymes and that I have been feeling ill.
It is not good news.
Everything (gall bladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, aorta) is fine - except for the liver. The radiographer told me that it was bright and slightly enlarged.
Her report was brief, but reads as follows: "The liver appears of raised echogenicity. It is bright and fatty in appearance. No free fluid".
I knew I wasn't well and my instincts are seldom wrong. It's a pity they were not in this case.
I am devastated and kicking myself.
