My husband was recently discharged from the hospital and colorectal cancer was ruled out by CT scan, but no mention of possible liver disease/cirrhosis was mentioned and he has many symptoms. Does anyone know if abdonminal pain in patients with cirrhosis worsen and then resolve on its own? Or, could this be from something else? ( I believe everything else has been ruled out: colorectal cancer, Crohn's, IBS, ulcer, bacterial infection in intestive, virus).
Also, could cirrhosis cause an enlarged colon showing on a CT scan of lower abdomen?View Thread
