So my LTF came back with ALT of 68 i have to go back for more blood tests in 2 weeks and await my scan. They are still sure it is down to Galbladder

I have started to get itchy all over and a red blotchy face, plus i am still getting the pain. I really don't get how the doctors can be so relaxed, up to 4 weeks for the scan what if my liver fails by then, what if it effects other organs.

I am really concerned.

    I think now a days you really have to push these doctors. Tell him or her that you can't go through these pains 1 more day. I had to do that but also, I live in the States, so maybe different. I went through all that too for weeks and keep getting worse. Blood work, ultrasound, ulcer medication, finally I pushed for a ultrasound and found the gallstones. Then had to wait 6 weeks for the operation but asked to be put on a cancelation list. But 3 weeks later at a app. They sent me directly to ER and had the surgery done within hours. They waited too long and they knew it. 

    But all done and I feel brand new, wish they had found this out when I was younger, missed out on so much.

    so speak up and punch the doctor

      My scan was supposed to be 22nd of October but got a cancellation for tomorrow. Can it be too late?

      I am just worried that if it is not my liver itself and the galstones as the doctor said it means it is affecting my liver.

      I am just scared my body shuts down or i do harm to liver and kidneys sad

      Were your blood works also showing an increase in the liver? LTF, My AFT is pretty high 68 and i am worried, either i have liver damage or the galbladder is causing liver damage

    Please go in there and DEMAND they do something! Are you on medication and having an allergic reaction to it? If they will not listen--CHANGE DOCTORS! Please keep me posted. there is no sense in you being treated this way!

    Is there any way you can see a second Gastroenterologist? I left mine, who I had for a year, because he did not do anything to actually help me. I had to go to urgent care to be seen for a surgery.

      Always get a female doctor. They know all the parts on woman and they are very understanding about pain. Men don't know and they think women wine a lot....

      Was your Pancreas checked also? Have you had a barium scan of your small intestines or a colonoscopy of your colon? If you have ovaries, there could be a cyst causing you pain. So many possible things this could be. You really have to have a doctor that will sit down. look you in the eye and LISTEN to you.

      Can I ask? Are you in the UK or the states? Because here we have to ask for certain blood tests. Over here they seem to concentrate on cholesterol, blood sugars. My doctor even put in a vit.D only request
