Have cirrhosis but question about pancreas....

Posted this to the cirrhosis group also.  \

Had my US done in 8-2012.  The US Final report stated that the liver was MILDLY hetergeneous echogencity.  A liver cyst with small indentations.  No acites (ascites). Spleen normal sized.  Kidneys normal that can be visualized. GB normal..pancreas normal.

BUT .. I had to get a CD made for the hep I will be seeing end of the month..was looking thru that cause I wanted to see the size of the cyst.  Came across the Loosy report which is the worksheet the dr reading the US jots down the info from his reading of the US.  

His report states: DIFFUSELY hetergeneous liver (fatty liver is circled)... COMPLRX CYST 2.3 x 2.1 x 2.1  
SPLEEN ENLARGED - 13.8 x 4.8 x 4.9   US didnt state this and said it was normal..  

Also US stated no acites (ascites) but the bottom of the report doesnt have it marked and has FLUID COLLECTION (either wrote VS or IS) artifact midline.  12.0 x 8.9 x 4.5 cm.

*******AND worksheet states there is dilated ducts at pancreas head. Is this something concerning???  I dont have any pain so that worries me********

So..the two reports dont match.  There are some discrepancies.  

I called the gastro and told him I was going to come in with the cd.  

Its enough to get my gastro interested.  will be making an appt with him this week.

Can someone help with the dilated duct at pancreas head?  I have had rheum arth since 1983....  sjogrens, raynauds, etc etc  now thinking lupus.
