I am not a doctor but from her symptoms and test results it appears she doesn't have cirrhosis so my knowledge and experience is limited.

In the ultrasound report it says..."5.features of cholecyatitis".

Cholecystitis is the medical name for inflammation of the gallbladder. Cholecystitis is most often the result of an obstruction within a duct in the gallbladder. Gallstones (cholelithiasis) are the most common cause of obstruction within the gallbladder. Left untreated, the inflammation may lead to infection. Other less common causes of cholecystitis include infection, injury and tumors.

Inflammation of the gallbladder is a common disease in the United States. The disease is more common in women than in men, and it occurs most frequently after the age of 40.

There are two types of cholecystitis: acute, which comes on suddenly, and chronic, which is longstanding and persistent. Gallstones are the most common cause for both types. Recurrent episodes of gallstones lead to thickening of the gallbladder wall and make the gallbladder less effective at removing bile and other substances. Ultimately, the condition may become chronic.

I would suggest posting on the MedHelp "Gallbladder Community" where there may be people family with cholecyatitis.

Good luck to you and your mother!

My specialist informed me that gall bladder wall thickening and blockage is consistent with liver cirrhosis. So there is a direct relationship. I was lucky as a blockage found on an abdominal MRI w/ contrast dye dissolved on its own. Bile production also can be affected and blockages can cause infection.

Did they remove fluid from her abdomen? I pray her appetite returns as good food ( fresh veggies & fruits and limited protein intake  ) can have a tremendous positive effect on her recovery and healing.
Has anyone suggested norinol (thc) for appetite stimulation and pain relief. She's in my prayers.
