I have been in hospital for nearly two weeks without a diagnosis. I am yellow, my eyes are yellow, I have severe fatigue and abdominal pain.

So far the doctors have ruled out: Hepatitis (All Strains), Gall Stones...
Test Results: Swollen Liver. Fluid surrounding Liver. Dilated Bile Ducts. Spots on and In Liver (ultrasound)

Current Diagnosis: Doctors are assuming cancer, however, Fluid comes back with abnormal cells, biopsy returns inconclusive results.

Current Tests: Currently they continue to grow the culture taken from both fluid and biopsy. A larger biopsy specimen is being planned in another week or two.

Any Thoughts?
