Hi dear friends,
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. God has blessed me greatly. My doctor said that my liver enzymes had gone down"dramatically" but they were still elevated, so she wants some more tests. So I am scheduled to give lots of blood (do I have any left?) and have some scans on my liver and spleen. She said my liver was enlarged (Just about everything on me is enlarged...haha..still trying to loose weight) Then she went into this talk about a liver biopsy. Didn't sound too bad until she started talking about all the side effects. I almost wanted to laugh because if the cancer doesn't get you...all the tests will! She talked about possible punctured lungs, ruptured gall bladder, internal bleeding. My, my, my...isn't life interesting? Anyway, the biopsy is only if the tests come back negative and the enzymes don't go down. I asked about Tamoxifen causing elevated enzymes and she said yes, but she didn't seem to think it was responsible. I read on the med insert that it does cause the elevations and also an enlarged and fatty liver (both of which the CAT scan confirms). I don't know what kind of nuclear med scan I will be receiving on the liver and spleen or when, but I'll keep you posted. Thank you so much for holding me up in prayer. My strength and hope is in my Lord for He is an awesome God. He has brought me through so much. Hugs to you all.
