I'm feeling much better tonight. I had my sonogram, and this is what the doctor found:
1) I don't have Fatty liver disease at all. I do have liver cysts. Big whopping ones. Those are what the vet felt. They are benign.
2) There is some liver inflammation. He isn't sure why. It could be FIV+ related. It might also be, and he leans toward this, that fluid is pooling in the front part of my liver from my heart, which is sort of not doing as well as it should.
The plan is to continue with the flagyl, which is, strangely, used in what I have! He doesn't feel for now it's a problem.
He has put me on Marin, which is a natural suppoliment for the liver. He knows about the other stuff-but he said to mommy 'slow and steady we add things, we don't overwhelm.'
I also have been prescribed an appetite booster as and if needed. Tonight I have been eating well on my own.
Cardiac medicine will be added, but this week, I'm on just these things. he wants to start off slowly. I will be monitored.
I'm tired but relaxed. I appear happier to mommy and she looks better. i was worried about her. But I think she'll be fine.
I want to thank everyone for purring for me. I know the heart thing is serious, and he did find some 'aging kidney stuff' so obviously, I am the ancient soul I've been telling them I was-and now they know.
Thank you everyone for your loves and purrs....
It's great to be home!
