Mri reports

Hi did u received

Yes thanks

Ok

The MRI shows cirrhosis of liver

Cirrhosis is basically a damage liver or fibrosis in the liver caused by multiple things

Common causes can include viral hepatitis B and C and Alcohol

There are some suspicious lesions in the liver as well which can be due to cirrhosis

You should have an alpha feto-protein level as it is a tumor marker and can be high in liver cancer

Secondly the suspicious lesions needs to be monitored with repeat imaging and if there is an increase it can be biopsied as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do we need another tests for lesions need to be monitored

Yes he can follow it up with an ultrasound after three months if the alpha feto-protein levels are normal

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating

question is.. is this recoverable or do we need transplant or any surgery do we need for her or by medicine she will be recovered

Cirrhosis will not reverse

But the progress can be halted with strict dietary and life style modification along with medicines

She will need a transplant eventually

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that mean she will need to transplant the whole liver is that your mean????
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
you mean she cannot recover from medicine and proper diet
Or is there any chance without liver transplant????

The liver is already cirrhotic so it is not reversible

So she will need a transplant

Whether it is required immediately or not can be decided based on various parameters

This has to be discussed with his hepatologist

Liver will not return to normal now

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Does she need full transplant or it can be recover from small surgery????

There is no big or small transplant

Transplant is a standard procedure and it is done when a person,s own liver is non-functioning

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What percentage do f cancer you recommend she got like 1 to 10 which stage of cancer she is can u recon??

I have not mentioned that she has cancer

I am saying there are suspicious lesions which can be further evaluated with alpha fetoprotein levels and biopsy

But her liver is definitely diseased and have cirrhosis

Please do let me know if you have any other question

She got sugar level so we are a bit worried about giving such foods
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are you aware about my mother MRI liver tests doctor ??

Yes I know she has Cirrhosis

You can give her Insulin for high sugars but she must take Carbohydrates and fats in her current situation

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is taking her sugar level tablets which are good at the moment with sugar level wise but
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Her doctor goes they not giving no tablets and want us to have MRI tests after three months when she survivng with pain sometime she feel soo weak
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Her doctor says if you are in pain take panadol or paracetamol
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But we are worried about they giving anything to stop spreading this (cirrhosis)

I think she is a candidate for liver transplant

Whether she need it right away or she can wait few months need to be discussed with her doctor

She can take Paracetamol as it is relatively safe to use in liver disease

There is no medicine to stop spread of liver cirrhosis unfortunately

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How long maximum we got time to wait for transplant you recommend as you have seen reports

She need to see a transplant hepatologist

They can assess her for transplant time and feasibility

I think it should be done in next 3-6 months
