I found out last (fatty liver) Sept, while in the hospital for bowel obstruction. Liver counts have always been strange. No serious communication with Dr about it at all.....she hasn't shown concern.

Hi @Tina80 and @Lee__R
I have been diagnosed with Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease going on three years now.

@Tina80 Thank you for sharing. From your response about how the doctor showed no concern and had no serious communication with you, I thought you may also find this discussion interesting, as well as in knowing you are not alone.

@angiebug Hello angiebug, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately we don't have any information on your condition, as it's pretty rare. For those who don't know, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is a cancer that develops in the cells within the bile ducts and occurs more often in males than females and in individuals over 50.
Feel free to post in this forum to see if there are other members living with the same condition as you. Hopefully you'll find the support you need.

Hello. I was diagnosed with Hepatitis B in 1993. I was born in 1960 in So. Korea and back then, the conditions were terrible and very unsanitary. I was abandoned by my birth mother so I know nothing about my biological parents.
Fast forward to the present..... in 2010, I was diagnosed with Crohns and I am on Remicade to keep me in remission. My liver functions remain normal, but I am on Vemlide which keeps me from going in to liver failure as long as I'm on the Remicade.
I also have cirrhosis of the liver which has caused me to have moderate sized Varocies. So, now now my GI doctor wants to do an Endoscopy to make sure they haven't grown and if they have, he's going to "band" them, which is going to be uncomfortable for a couple of days, but it beats bleeding out.
Many Asian people have Hepatitis B, and in my situation, in a carrier, my antibodies are non reactive. I have a full liver panel a year, but my levels are normal. What irritates me is my doctor doesn't really go over my results, they usually post it and I'll go in to the portal and read it myself.
Does anyone else have this same issue?
