Three weeks ago my partner was sent home from work feeling extremely ill with pains in his abdomen
They didnt improve and he was admitted to hospital three days laterwith suspected Gallstones and / or infection in his gallbladder. An ultrasound showed no stones present and he was given IV antibiotics for 4 days He is really weak, unable to walk far or fast and still in considerable pain
The hospital requested he stay in over last weekend in order that he see a liver specialist immediately on monday due to elevated test results but an appointment was never followed up and he was discharged after 10 days with no idea what is wrong other than some problem with his liver
Five days later he is no better, still in considerable pain with little or no energy. He says it feels like there is a pressure in his abdomen and when the pressure builds up so does the pain
His test results in the main stabilised with the exception of two LFT levels that continued to rise from admission to the time of his discharge
Can anyone tell us what these may mean ...
GGT normal range 0-50..... 581 0n 16/6 rising to 937 0n 18/6 (latest test result)
ALP normal range 30-130..... 272 0n 16/6 rising to 365 on 18/6
No follow up bloods have been ordered since 18/6
He is not a drinker - last drink was probably aroud Easter and before that months ago - wasnt a big drinker in the past and eats pretty well plus has a quite physical job
The only thing we can say is that theres maybe been a problem for a few months in hindsight as he has been physically drained all the time - he's 47 years of age by the way
Should there be anything we should be concerned about and has anyone experienced something similar
