I truly think my days are numbered and I have been constantly misdiagnosed by the Drs and I suspect it is too late for treatment.

OK my story. It was picked up many years ago that my liver function tests are elevated, back in 1999 a ultrasound and a CT scan showed fatty liver, my LFTs have been monitored over the years and have got a bit better, this year I had two more scans and again fatty liver or NASH was suspected, I saw a herpetologist who did many other blood tests for all the other causes of elevated LF and drew the same conclusion.

About three to four months ago I started to get nausea and over the last few months this has got far worse to the point that I hardly eat, please see below my current diet.

Now the alarming bit I have lost 20 pounds in body weight in the last three months, can this be anything other than cancer somewhere?

I have had ALL the blood tests a million times and ALL are normal, I was even admitted to my local hospital last week as my Dr thought I maybe dehydrated, I wasn't so I was sent home.

I have no pain just nausea plus lack of appetite.

The Nausea is at its worse four or five hours after eating, my stomach becomes VERY noisy almost like I am hungry and it is all I can do NOT to be sick, this lasts for a couple of hours.

I do get weak and light headed but not every day, sometimes even walking is an effort.

Yesterday I saw a GI doctor who examined me but found nothing but said I should have a gastro camera.

Any one with any thoughts what it could be would be great, I am really concerned that it could be cancer, I am 50 yo male 6ft .

My diet for the last three months,

Small bowl of cornflakes and a small yoghurt, slice of toast (wholemeal) with butter.

Single scrambled egg on slice of toast (wholemeal) with butter.

Small bowl of cornflakes and a small yoghurt.

I drink small glass of cranberry juice a day and about half a pint of water, nothing more.

Does this seem enough?

Thank you.
