Hi! I am a 31 year old female that would enjoy a few beers almost every night for the last 6 years(but 2 of them I was pregnant, so I wasn't drinking during those years)
I went to the doctor the beginning of December to get a physical done because I haven't had one in probably close to 10 years... when my bloodwork came back my dr called and said my liver enzymes were high, I went back and had my bloodwork redone. My liver enzymes went down to only double what they should be(instead of 5x how they were the first time around.... I am thinking from drinking beer??) so she wanted to send me for an ultra sound to check for a fatty liver. She called and said everything looked great, except for a small nodule that was found during my ultrasound. Now I am scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday and scared out of my mind that this is going to be liver cancer..... can someone please help? Has anyone been through something similar
