Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. What do you mean by having complete medical refusal since 2003? You haven't been to the doctor for almost 10 years? 

In your particular case, this is a very person-specific question in which a doctor would need to know your past medical history as well as family history, medical workup, etc. 

If you would like to read some information on Portal Vein Obstruction, please visit: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/182425-overview

Although we cannot give you specific information like the one you are asking, I hope you will see your MD soon and that the information from medscape helps. 

Best Wishes,
