My dad has been referred from our local hosp to a bigger one in town because of hepatobiliary problems. No idea what kind of problem. He asked me to find out about it for him and so i can prepare my sister and half bro and sis if its not likely to be anything good.(thanks for that dad)
I can't find much that is of use to him other than info on liver tumours.(or is that what it is?)
I don't know much about his general health, i tend to not see him for long periods of time and then will see him every few weeks for a couple of months.
I'm afraid I need more to work with - hepatobilary just means anything to do with the liver or bile ducts/gallbladder. it covers a wide range of illnesses - from gallstones, to pancreatic problems, to hepatitis and liver or bile duct tumours. impossible to say without more info.
he has told me...Anti nuclear anti body (is that the ANA- i can't read my own writing!) is 100 ALT 57 GGt 135 Amylase 52
He runs away from health things, he was offered a tube down his throat not so long ago to have a look at his stomach (he was always swigging gaviscon when i was younger, will forever remember that GIANT bottle) and he just ignored the letters.
I know he will find out sooner or later and he is going to try and get up here this week so will get him to bring the letter and results he has been given.
he isn't a drinker nowadays but used to drink (frequently in my recollection), not on any medication (asked already). i have also said that it doesn't matter what you look for medical wise online, it always tells you you have cancer!
