So, I had my hospital appointment! The MRI confirmed that what I have is focal nodular hyperplasia(external link), which the gastroenterologist is very unconcerned about, saying roughly: “This is totally benign, never been known to cause any problems, will never require any kind of treatment…” The flipside of that is that it means he doesn’t think we have an explanation for my (slightly) abnormal bloodwork, or really the alcohol tolerance issue, so what he wants is… more blood tests 😛 And so we’ll see.
