I have a 34 year old daughter who is at Bayonne Medical Center in Bayonne NJ 0000. She has an inflamed liver and extreme pain, also friday had a liverbiopsy, XXXXXXX my only living relative is fading away in a hospital bed in BMC, not one of here ten doctors agree, surgeons, infectious disease, a hematologist, a gastro enterologist and gastro surgeon. In fact the only Dr. who could give me my baby back is a liver specialist or nephrologist, I think thats the name but 9 days of agony, Fevers hitting 102.6-104 fareheit when the fevers spike almost like clockwork, every early morning and every night and she is fine during the day I'm 78yrs old, I just want my daughter to have a chance in life, I am lost and no one knows anything, I will not bury my daughter before me. All they agree on is it could be a rare virus, my email is YYYY@YYYY any info would be a god send, also not hep A,B, or C and not HIV. Also her white blood cell count or messurement is 200 or so low she can't fight off anything and visiting will be suspended, Red Blood cells and platlets low as low as the can get. She is only 34, I have to do whatever it takes. I am 78yrs my liver is as old as me but seems to be beter than hers, I this will save her I will give her mine, I refuse to bury another child, 23 years ago I lost my son and 3 years before my wife. Is my liver strong enough if it is a healthy liver for a 78 year old to give her what she needs.

Brief Answer:
Hepatologist / gastroenterologist

Detailed Answer:

As per your mail your daughter does not have a kidney problem, she does not need a nephrologist. A Hepatologist or gastroenterologist is the right specialist.

Wishing the best for your daughter.
