Hello folks, recently I was told quite bluntly that I had Cirrhosis of the liver, until then I was just told "you have a fatty liver" which did not really mean much to me at the time (lack of info) I had a fibroscan of the liver a year or so ago, then a more recent one showing scarring, which apparently can lead to liver cancer, I'm having blood tests next week and a Gastro app 17th November. In the meantime suddenly had swollen ankles, water retention, then fluid in my lungs, oh my god, am I drowning?? I now take 2 different water tablets, Spironolactone 25mg, and Furosemide 20mg, one of each per day. And I am scared to bloody death, excuse the language, I already have an existing lung condition called Bronchiectasis, so fluid build up surely is a worry? Sorry for rambling on, I wonder what to expect from the Gastro people? It's a 200 mile round trip for me to get there, so if there is relevant questions I need to ask please help, thank you. David.
