User Profile
1 I have hepitis A when I was in grade 4 not sure how old I was. I was wondering Could that have damaged my liver?
2 my urine has a odor to it and it is green and yellow in colour and I have trouble peeing
3 I had endo coterized in 1999 can it come back again?
4 In 2003 I had pain like this before and it ended up being fused scar tissue that began to rip and cause lots of bleeding. Could this be the rt lower quadrant pain?
5. Do you know of a surgeon how would look at my neck and its stablizers and may operste to fix them?
Please I beg you for an answer on this lassst one in pain 24/7 and my painlevel after never burns goes down to 4-5 and then back up.

1. Hepatitis A is always an acute infection. The liver becomes damaged during the acute infection but after overcoming the infection, any damage to the liver heals completely. Immunity against Hepatitis A virus is for life so once you've contracted it, you can't get Hepatitis A again.

2. Difficulty urinating could be due to a urinary tract infection that can be confirmed via urinary lab tests.

3. I'm not sure what you mean by “endo coterized”?

4. I'll be able to help you more if you detail exactly where the scar tissue was localized.

5. I'm sorry but we're not in a position to recommend surgeons. Perhaps you can ask some of your contacts at ehealth if they know of any specialists.
