I am very eager to hear the replies on this one. I was recently diagnosed with HAs in November, however I have never been a birth control user. Either way, a bit hopeful with your post. I think that I am officially in menopause (less estrogen) and am hopefully, at a minimum, at the next check, mine will have stabilized or shrunk in size. Curious, how large were yours and how many did they find upon diagnosis? Mine too were found accidently from a CT scan. Have you ever seen a liver specialist? Did they ever do a liver biopsy on you? Sorry for so many questions, but any of us -- as I am sure you can understand -- are very curious.

Hi Annette-

I had three. One was larger, and the other two were smaller, though I don't remember the exact size. Large enough to discuss resection, not large enough for me to agree to resection. :-) My gastroenterologist is a liver specialist per se, but I never saw a doctor that specializes in livers only. A liver biopsy wasn't recommended in my case. The adenomas were deep in the liver and a tricky biopsy became even tricker. I was told it wouldn't affect my treatment one way or the other. I had to go to a different hospital for the specific type of contrasting agent they used in liver MRI scans. I did ask if the adenomas would go away over time after discontinuing OC. I was told that that should not be expected, but a slowing or even stopping of growth would be the most likely outcome. So to have these guys disappear is weird. And the doctors kind of shrug and say, yes weird, we don't know, get on with life now. Easier said than done!
