Re: scared something wrong with my liver

I'm so sorry you are suffering. You have had enough testing to stop worry about your liver, however, your pain is VERY real, and I understand how frustrating and scarey it is to have NO answers. Did they check the surgical site by ultrasound? Have they looked for infection, tubal pregnancy, etc? Keep in mind pain can radiate and be felt in an unaffected location..so the pain under your ribs, could be coming from your belly, or your left side..etc. For example I get severe pain in my hips and down to my knees when I menstruate, and clearly I have no sexual organs within my hips or behind my knees.
Have you had an endoscopy? (internal camera view of whats going inside you) Have they ruled out an ulcer, or lung infection? So you see many things could be causing your pain..but truly it is I am sure it is NOT your liver. Especially since you are not showing other classic indications of liver problems.

My advice is intended to be helpfull, I am not a health professional, but I have done an aweful lot of reasearch on liver malfunction in recent months.

I hope you get this solved, and find a means to cope with the pain. It's hard for a Dr. to understand your pain when he or she cannot feel it.

*hugs*

Re: scared something wrong with my liver Or could this be something else anybody plea

if all your blood tests are normal and ultrasound came back normal! than most likely your liver is fine! abdominal pain can be caused by a number of things, if your un easy ask for a cat scan, it could be gall bladder, but i would not stress!!!

Re: scared something wrong with my liver Or could this be something else anybody plea

I can't see my responce, can you? OK So here is the gyst of it again.
I am truly sorry for your suffering, it is very real but difficult for a Dr. to grasp the seriousness as they aren't feeling it, because if a Dr. was feeling your pain many more tests would be done.
Firstly, your liver is fine, it's been tested multiple times and there and seems absolutely fine. Keep in mind pain can easily radiate, so for example, when I menstruate my hips, and down my legs to behind my knees are very painfull, but clearly I have no reproductive organs behind my knees, so it is radiant pain.

Were you checked for ulcers? Did they use a camera to view inside (upper GI endoscopy?) Do you feel the pain in your back?

I hope you have a swift recovery and answers. Have you tried taking ibuprofin, or prescribed pain remedies for comfort? Could you be having a reaction to other medications?

I'm not a health professional, this is intended as support only, I have done extensive reasearch on liver disease recently, and I am confidant your liver is fine, I hope you find that reassuring.

Re: scared something wrong with my liver Or could this be something else anybody plea

if Ct scans and ultrasounds were done and they came back normal, i would really stop worrying, fatigue is another general symptom that can be caused by anything from as benign to a cold to something serious, if you still believe something is wrong gather all your medical records and send them off for a scond opinion.

i hope you gett better!

Re: scared something wrong with my liver Or could this be something else anybody plea

Please do not take this as harsh- but I think you have done all you can. If you take any meds then tell your doc and maybe they can work on changing your drugs- Stop milk products for a few weeks and see if that helps--- If you are really really worried about your liver then this is a good time to stop drinking altogether. Then you will at least not have that problem on your mind.

Sounds like you have done all you can-- good luck to you.

Re: scared something wrong with my liver Or could this be something else anybody plea

i really dont drink that much like during the week i dont drink non not one sip at all i drink non cafffinated drinks mostly i just dunno what could be causing this pain which is barable i mean it dont feel like pressure or anything like ppl describe its just there i do not drink any milk products i tryed takin milk thirstle but omg that stuff make me so sick feeling and on top of it not hungry it was horriable i do take meds it could be the meds making me so fatigue,im going tomarrow to have my iron checked to see if its low other than that your right ive done all i can do hell only test really left would be a liver biosy an they arent going to do that inless they suspect something wrong with my liver and of corse with all the blood test & catscans and ultrasounds coming back normal they're seemms to be no need for it, i think what got me so scared about my liver is a few months ago my ex was living with a woman whom had cirrious of the liver she is really bad off but thats her fault cause she wouldnt stop drinkin till now cus the is doing really bad this is when i started getting scared and obsessed with something was wrong with mine. so maybe all this is in my head but i know the pain i feel in that area is real but they see nothing wrong.
