Mordhaus says... I also had some abdomen pain, but not as much as I do now. It's hard to say if the stomach expanding or the loss of appetite was the first symptoms. I went to my gastro doc first thinking it might be something celiac related, but when it kept getting worse I went to a doctor at austin regional clinic. He said it sounded like a gallbladder issue and sent me to the sonogram. Now I have to go back to the gastro doc on the 28th, which I was lucky to get thanks to how covid is hitting all the docs, and see if we can drain the fluid. I'm hoping it doesn't start hurting to the point where I have to go to the emergency room and get it drained before then. It's just crazy, my mom died in 2019 from liver/kidney failure but she was in her 60's with many bad habits. I'm only 48 and other than being overweight I don't, I quit smoking many years ago and I almost never drink, but here I am. Now I have to wonder if having covid before I could get vaccinated accelerated the failure. Anyway, I'll post when I know more. Just really down atm. newtboy said: Holy sheep shit man! So sorry to hear it. Was the stomach expansion the only symptom? Are the gallstones related or just an extra fuck you from the universe? Lots of questions....but for later. Good luck on the drain and function tests. Do what your Dr tells you, don't fuck around with liver problems. Glad to hear your wife is almost well....but so sorry your roles of patient/caregiver are reversing. Good crunchy granola vibes from hippie land. Get well, and keep us updated.
