I've received my results today earlier than expected and the receptionist said she got a doctor to take a preliminary look and he couldn't see any areas of concern.

For now I am massively relived, shocked and a little bit worried still as I've read on here that blood results for liver can be negative but there can still be issues?!

This is now my 3rd set of bloods over the years all showing no areas of concern... How much can I actually start to believe things are ok?!

What is the likelihood there could still be liver problems or am I just being anxious?

I wish I knew what caused the spider angioma to keep appearing and the Bizzare thing was last week I kept setting off shop alarms I was convinced I had iron overload I guess that would have shown in my blood work?!

I'm going to pop to docs Monday morning and see if I can get a copy of the results.

Sorry if I'm ranting like a crazy one, on the plus side husband asked if I wanted wine tonight and I was able to say no, really hope this has been the wake up call I needed.....

      At my appointment she said we'll check your liver function as they are spider neavi which could indicate a liver problem given your drinking history or they could just be "something your skin does" .....

      From a vanity point of a view I asked when they would stop cropping up as they are getting quite unsightly on my arms with at least 3 obvious ones which I have to cover with makeup and have done for many years....

      I have a review next week so I will discuss further but I'm not hopefull I'll get to the bottom of why I have them... Seems a bloody strange coincidence me....

    Trust your results.

    In my field of work...3 same results...validate a system is operating correctly.

    They call it Validation.

    I have always had good blood results...until the last time i drank....so try not to drink.

      Thanks Missy, I do wonder if I'll ever have a normal relationship with alcohol but right now I'm just happy abstaining for as long as I can do and in the long term maybe I can make a deal with myself to only drink when out on social occasions as the drinking home alone is the slippery slope.

      I've proved I can do it before when I've had to so this big wake up call is hopefully what I've needed.

      It sounds like you are like me.

      And that means that you can't have a normal relationship with alcohol.

      Normal drinkers don't end up in the hospital when they drink..LOL (not funny).

      Two things that we have to remember..."normal" people don't wonder about their relationship with alcohol, because there is no relationship.  They can REALLY take it or leave it.  (I watched my sister pour out half a bottle of wine because of a little cork in it.  I almost fainted!  LOL..).

      I was sober 3 years, and I went on a cruise (floating bar) with my ex-husband, and decided I would only drink while on vacation.  Let me say that that was 10 years ago, and I have struggled ever since.  I am now 5 months sober, and have ESLD.  I don't know if I will need a liver transplant for sure yet, but probably.

      Please try to stay stopped this time!  I go to AA and see a counselor.

      Good luck and prayers for you!

      I am so jealous that i can not drink like my b/f...but I have proved...time and time again in the last 2 years...I can't.

      The journey now is more difficult than it was 10 years ago when I stopped (11 now actually).  So pretty much I started my 3rd year back to drinking.

      I have 30 days right now....I have been going to the gym....going to Drs...going to therapy....I feel much better.  

      BUT..yesterday there was a man in a car next to me...drinking a CAN....my head WHIPPED around...to see if it was a "beer".  No it was an energy drink...but my body reacted with jealousy thinking it was a beer..and I was automatically snappy.....because I want to drink.

      I am taking Campral...which stops cravings AND it works..BUT..I stopped it 3 days ago because it was upsetting my stomach...and making have no taste....and I think tommorow I will take some of them...maybe if I don't take them to a point where they build in my system..I won't feel sick.

      Robin I'm still not convinced, like many others the worry is still with me.

      I worry my platelet count is on the lower end of normal this in itself could indicate liver damage.

      I'm so scared to hear you can have normal tests and still have a damaged liver, I feel I will liver forever with this fog of worry hanging over me.

      I hear this all the time and I have no idea why. If you drank a lot of alcohol, guess what, you have liver damage, I can tell you that right now. If you're not drinking anymore, you're gonna go on living as you would. Everybody is drinks excessively gets scarring on their liver, just only 1 in 10 have it turn into the C
