"There's a myth that anyone who has a liver problem has brought it on themselves" This quote is from a Crohn's disease patient living with a blocked portal vein hoping for a liver transplant (Independent 31st Oct 2010)

The liver function blood tests that were taken at clinic yesterday, Monday, have come back with the ALT (one of the inflammation markers) spiking at a shocking 660.  (It was in the 20s' until December when it crept up into the 70's.  So I have to pack a bag and get myself into Salford Royal hospital asap, which is going to be first thing Wednesday morning now, as I cant get organised before then.  Dr Al warned me I might be in 'for a few days', as I think he wants to get a biopsy done while I'm there undergoing tests.

That's all I know for now.


  1. Fiona,
    You will be in our thoughts and prayers. This has got to be nerve wracking for you and your family.
    Good Luck...

  2. Thank you for your thoughts Carla. Bag packed ready for the off early tomorrow morning. Will update here as soon as I can. Love to Steve.
