OK, now I'm really getting aggravated. My doctor just called with the last of the lab results, negative for CMV and mono and the EBV just showed a past infection, which I knew it would because of the CFIDS. But NOTHING current yet I am still having all the symptoms I had last week!!!! What the f....!!! That was basically her reaction too.

She's now talking liver biopsy and ultrasound and more lab work, pending the results of the CAT scan next week. I can't do anything else til then and she's on vacation but is leaving another doc who I've dealt with before in charge, and I am to follow up with him on Thursday next week to see what the CAT scan shows. She made a good point saying you can't test for everything all at once but this looks to be a very long process. Sad

What are they basing the diagnosis of hepatitis on - is your liver enlarged?

liver = large organ inside your body
biopsy = taking a little piece of said organ (right?) eek

They give you a locol, stick a needle in your side, and pull out some of the liver tisse.


Genie - They are going to do the liver scan/ultrasounds first, correct? That will show if your liver is enlarged; apparently if it is not they do not do the biopsy. At least I hope for you. I will talk to you later. It sux to be yakking up sick and not know what is going on... dunno

Fortunately they do the liver one with a needle so there's no cutting involved.....but I'm still cringin'... Shocked

CB, we won't know that until the CAT scan but between the bilirubin in the urinalysis and my liver enzymes being elevated in the initial liver function studies bloodwork on Tuesday, that's why she narrowed it down to hepatitis. She said it can be caused by any number of factors, not simply the three Hep viruses. I asked her today if she still thinks that's what it is and she said yes. The symptoms are all there, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, my skin isn't jaundiced but the whites of my eyes are yellow....I've been running a fever almost every day since Friday.....

I dunno, I give up at this point. I'm exhausted and goin' to bed.
