Peggy H Posted April 9, 2003 Share Posted April 9, 2003 My younger sister got bad news on her most recent PET/CT scan - metastatic pleural effusion (which she's had before, treated easily) plus metastatic fluid "in her belly." The doctor said the fluid "in her belly" was because her liver "isn't functioning properly" - she has extensive liver mets. Has anyone had successful treatment of this condition & does anyone know why liver dysfunction would cause this? Is there anything which can improve liver function? I'm meeting with her oncologist tomorrow & I always like to have suggestions ready. A couple of months ago she had severe (I mean, she could not walk for several weeks) pain in her calves. I remember seeing a post here about liver dysfunction causing leg pain. Anyone remember that one? I can't find it. Why would that be & what is the treatment? Thanks for any help.
