2 months ago I was diagnosed with Iron deficiency anaemia. Because of my age (69) I was referred for a gastroscope and colonoscopy, the gastroscope was done 12 May and confirmed already existing problems. Because of my mobility problems the colonoscopy could not be done, so a CT scan of the colon was done June 1st. That apparently showed some problem but what was not explained to me and I was asked to go for an MRI scan of the liver onJune 15th. Have now had a letter saying I have swelling in the liver which is affecting the bile ducts and have to see a consultant (for the first time) next Tuesday. Apparently I will at some point in the near future have to have an ERCP but no real explanation as to why - presumably that info will be given to me on Tuesday. I am nervous and wonder if anyone can give me some assurance. My imagination is going into overdrive and I'm worrying about liver cancer even though my only relevant symptoms are severe tiredness (am sleeping/drowsing all but about 4 hours per day) and bloated stomach
