Thank you Diane. That’s useful information about the bilirubin.

For my dad, the bilirubin was found to have normalised. Just worried about the ascites now.

This morning we saw the oncologist. Based on the hospital records, the recent weight gain is not as drastic about 1.5kg rather than 3kg. Differences in scale I suppose. In Ang case, he sent my dad for another ultrasound and we will get to know the results tomorrow. He didn’t seem worried as physical examination did not show anything and he has no symptoms.

Will update again.
Dad, diagnosed CC age 70

Resection Mar 2014, 5FU continuous infusion 6months
Post chemo scan clear Feb 2015, port removed
2016- clear scan
2017- clear scan
2018 - clear scan
April 2019 - clear scan, but with mild ascites around liver. Scan again in 6 months

Dear all, thought to update that the ultrasound showed consistent findings with the earlier CT, mild ascites. It seems to be stable.
They also found increased echo of the liver and dilated hepatic vein which I understand can be related to fatty liver.

We are off to the UK tomorrow night but after we return we have an appointment with the liver specialist. I hope this liver thing is not that serious...

Thanks everyone for the support here.
