    Hi Rach, I think you are telling us that you have elevated liver enzymes - of 178 - and a lump in a lymph gland [do you mean an enlarged lymph node?]

    You are having an ultrasound on your liver this week, where they will hope to see if they can find any abnormalities

    Have a look at this page, go down a little, till you see the section on Liver and Gallbladder.  It is very informative

    Ask your doctor if you don't understand, or a nurse.

    Good luck Rach, come back and tell us how you get on.

      My husband had Leukaemia and they found it when he had a blood test, he had an abnormal blood test and he was called in to see a Haematologist straight away and he did a lumbar puncture.

      My husband had elevated white cells, virtually no platelets and very few red cells.

      You will have to trust your doctor and wait for results, tell her your worries and don't try to second guess your diagnosis.

      Go back and see her

      Have you also had a repeat blood test?  It would be interesting to know whether your enzymes are still 'elevated'  [they go up and down, they don't tend to get bigger and smaller!]

      It could just have been a blip and things may be back to normal now.

      Let me know how you get on on Friday.

    HI Rachel.

    YOu need to ask for a second opinion. Raised Gamma levels and enlarged lymph glands could be something that needs further investigation;

    Please do insist ona second opinion; i wish you the best .

    please do let me know how you get on. smile

    in addition; you may want to consider oregano oil.. smile

      I was told their and then that all was fine it all come down to the fact I was taking too many paracetamols (advised by the doctor for my migraines) which damaged my liver but after not taking them for a few months it all went back to normal but I have to avoid paracetamol so thankfully as was well

    I am having a liver ultrasound. I have multiple sclerosis and been on 3 different meds that have Interferon in them. My Dr said she wanted to check something and can't remember what she said. So how long did it take and what were they looking for?
