I had an abdominal ultrasound and got the results yesterday. The reason I had the ultrasound was because I have had a hard mass that protrudes out from right under where my scar from my liver resection is. I've been wondering is it a tumor, hernia, scar tissue (as my onc thought), or even a swollen part of my liver due to a possible clogged bile duct (as my naturopathic dr thought). I haven't seen the report, my onc's nurse just told me over the phone. She said it said "no mass found". My first reaction was "What?! I can see it just by looking and I can certainly feel it!". She went on to read to me, "multiple liver metastasis seen. ". well, duh, I already knew that! No sizes given. So it really did t tell me much. Except maybe that it's actually my liver, swollen with tumors. Or that it's my liver, swollen with back up. Does anyone have any suggestions? Oh I do get pain there sometimes after meals and I've thrown up once a day for the past 3 days in a row. If nothing definitive showed on the ultrasound and nothing mentioned on CT in Dec (and I had this then too), how can they ever tell what it is? I'm worried that it's a digestive problem in my liver. How can I find out?
Update at bottom- got the ultrasound written report in the mail yesterday-
