Hi, anyone out there with Breast Cancer mets to liver? did you have any symptoms? My doctors have been "watching" my liver for years (since dx of bc). I had stage 1 bc, had a mastectomy with immediate tram flap reconstruction, then 4 rounds of AC chemo, and am almost 4 years into tamoxifen. Since chemo, I have developed type 2 diabetes and most recently, arthritis in several places. they are saying that I have a fatty liver, but I'm concerned it might be more than that. The ultrasound showed nothing unusual, and they say that it feels like it's the right size, shape, etc. However, I feel bloated all the time, and feel like my upper stomach is distended. I also have fairly regular right side pain (dull ache). And, my liver enzymes in the last two appointments were (June 06: AST 64, ALT 106; then in october 06: AST 145 and ALT 161). This both seems high, and a big jump in 4 months. Should I be concerned? And what testing should I be asking for? any advice is greatly appreciated. Would love to hear others stories about bc mets to liver. Thanks. Barb K.
