so sorry Blonde 123 to hear your diagnosis ... keep focusing on the advances every day that are being made .

Re: Liver Metastasis with normal liver function results???

Hi Bethy

How did you get on? Mine are liver mets which I know but have changed status from the original breast cancer 17 years ago. So all so know is I am now er negative but her2 positive but he was up beat about treatments options etc but I have to start chemo which I am dreading. I do hope you are ok and you have excapsed the liver mets bit. They thought I had a couple of spots on ribs from ct but nothing on the bone scan showed anything sinister going off as yet. Big hugs I have thought about you all day.  Xx

Re: Liver Metastasis with normal liver function results???

Hi Bethy,

My blood results have always come back with normal liver function levels and my liver mets were found incidentally as part of a routine CT scan around March 2020.  There was never any indication in my bloodwork that there was a problem in the liver area.

Even now, I have little mets that seem to come and go in my liver, and the blood results never show anything but normal levels!  

Sending you both you and Karen big hugs, I can totally relate to how scary it is finding out you have liver mets.  However, as many people on here can tell you, the liver is a very forgiving and clever organ and there are lots of options for treating mets in the liver, so hang in there until you know the results and have a treatment plan in place xxx

I just read your message back I need luck but would rather have lunch than the oncologist…

FIngers crossed you will be ok, I know I have them I am just waiting to see if it’s the same we status as before. Such a shock I was originally diagnosed at the age of 37 with stage 2b in 2004. Been well ever since. I am scared but just want to get on with whatever treatment they throw at me. I will keep everything crossed for you, there are a lot of things that can cause tiredness. I wasn’t particularly tired before my diagnosis (only for 3 weeks but had covid).

Very tired .. both haematologist & biochemistry department that my gp contacted said "Liver metastasis " must be ruled out .. Feel sick at the thought ! Xx

Hi
Yes please let me know when you have been. Lunch would certainly be more preferable. How are you feeling in yourself? X

Hi,

I too have just been diagnosed with multiple lesions on liver a possible couple of spots on ribs 4 weeks ago. All bloods ok, I originally went to a and e for potential blood clot so Ct Scan that’s how it was found, I have no pain nothing. I was originally diagnosed in 2004, so shocked is an understatement. Oncology appointment Monday 25th for way forward as had to have a liver biopsy to determine status with it being so long. I have no answers but looks if we could be on a similar route. Xx hope you are as it’s all such a shock isnt it
