Severe Pain upper right rib cage fatty liver
Two weeks ago, I got an acute attack of pain under my right rib cage.
The ER took xrays and an ultrasound. Bloodwork, and urine sample.
The only thing they could find was a slightly enlarged liver, and fatty liver.
I saw the specialist Monday , had a ct for the following day, he told me all my blood work came back normal.
My blood pressure was a little high, (I think because of the pain) it's never been high before.
He told me that fatty liver only causes a dull ache , and to take the 5mg of hydrocodone the ER prescribed.
He got my CT , and the nurse told me the results over the phone, fatty liver, I need to lose weight, and take asprin for the pain.
This isn't a dull pain.. it's pretty painful at times, and unbearable to sit for over 2 hours. it's just up under the ribcage, along the side, to the back.
I've been eating whole foods, and soups, taking milk-thistle blend, and L-carnitine. Still the pain is there.
I'm flying to see my son next week. Scared that it might hurt me even more.
anyone that can give me some advice I could use it!!
