Dead Spots On Liver

[ Edited ]

I've been in a lot of pain. I have been in the hospital since Thursday. An MRI has shown dead spots on the liver that they say comes from throwing blood clots.

They have tested my heart and I was told that bowels could also throw blood clots. Today I came home with some sort of heart monitor that will show throwing of the clots (or so they say)  This all makes no sense to me and I told the doctor I had never heard of this.  He said it is very rare.

 

Has anyone here ever heard of this?

No, I have never heard of this, but I am sorry you're not well.

 

I hope your doctors get to the bottom on this and find some relief for you.  I wish you well.  Take care.

I have not heard of this health issue and  understand your feelings.  As many may suggest, it might be a good idea to get a second opinion at some point, it is always good to hear from another specialist.

 

I am sorry you are going through this ordeal and hope the outcome is good health and peace of mind.  Please let us know how you are doing.

Have had my own heart and clot issues over the last 2 decades. I am familiar with the phrase "throwing clots", have been on several different heart monitoring devices, both in and out of the hospital. Not sure that phrase is used as a medical term.

 

I have never heard of this device that shows the "throwing of clots". 

 

Wishing you pain free days and improvement with your medical and health situation. 🙏

I have not heard of this before, but I personally believe that the human body is very remarkable.

 

I've recently had a very rare and serious infection in the heel of my right foot and lower leg, and I've been recovering from that for the past several weeks so I guess that nothing would surprise me anymore, regarding what can happen to our bodies.

 

I'm really very sorry that this has happened to you and I hope that the monitor will show something while you're wearing it so that the doctors can find out what is going on.

 

I really hope and pray that you're feeling better soon! ((Hugs to you.)) Heart

I've heard of liver lesions and liver fibrosis.  I never heard of dead spots.  But I'm sure the doctors will figure it out.  Wishing you all the best in your recovery.
