Is there a group for liver hemangioma or liver resection. That is why I’m coming to Mayo in a couple weeks and would like to connect with people who have had the surgery.

I just want to know if you have another diagnoses or had those symptoms but there in another group can you respond. Because so many of us have more than one Illness and either want to know more or want to give experiences you went through

The fact that people list ailments in various places makes it difficult if not impossible for the average person to locate all the information available for a particular ailment. At least I wouldn’t think to look in so many different places.

Hi @jakedduck1
Your profile is now 100% complete. However, if you do not wish to use your full name, you do not have to. You can simply use your first name or initials. That is your choice.

And it is a worthy 2 cents, @jakedduck1. As the discussions related to liver reach a critical mass to maintain a group, it will be separated out of the Digestive Health group into a group of its own.

@jakedduck1 I have noticed there are liver & specific liver ailment discussions & pages when I was researching the various links in Mayo Connect. Exploring the site was very interesting because I found things that I was not even aware of enough to ask questions. It wouldn't hurt to try if you like leisurely looking around – I actually enjoyed it. But I am a sociologist so that kind of stuff is up my alley.

Thank you, couldn’t have done it without all your help and kanaazpereira’s help. Thank you both for your patience. I wish there was a users guide for dummies on here but I’m probably the only one who needs it.

@jakedduck1. You are not the only one!

@jakedduck1 As a mentor, I can admit to confusion at times myself. However, the more you use Connect, the easier it will be to navigate your way around the community!

NO! You are NOT the only one who needs it. Because of this site I am now aware of liver issues! My 89 year old aunt won’t be taking the Big 3, but the doctor has put her on Doxycycline. She is still coughing though. However, reading information from here I’m having my aunt ask her doctor about probiotics.

Don’t worry, @jakeduck.  I don’t know what I’m doing either!   You have provided us all with a lot of answers.  MaryLou

You put the discussion about bursitis in the perfect place in the Bones, Joints & Muscles group, @deyo5656
