Sister went to the ER for abdominal pain a year ago and an emergency MRI, continued problems resulted in doctors saying it was galbladder related. Today, she went to the surgeon for the pre-surgery interview, and upon reviewing the MRI, he determined that both she has potentially fatal liver abscesses (nearly guaranteed if she were to get pregnant), and was not notified of this condition.
