gnawing burning pain under right rib cage

I was recently told that my liver enzymes were high, I had an ultrasound of my abdomen and found out that I have a fatty liver. I haven't had a follow up appointment with my doctor to discuss the results yet. I've been having gnawing, burning pains and tenderness under my right rib cage and sometimes I'll get a sharp stabbing pain there as well that leaves me feeling sore and a little nauseous. My gallbladder was removed years ago. I'm wondering if I should be concerned and discuss these symptoms with the doctor. I'm also around 60-70 lbs overweight and my blood work also showed that my blood sugar was high but I'm not diabetic. I have very little energy and I'm tire all the time as well. My aunt also passed away recently after receiving a liver transplant due to a hereditary liver condition, unsure of what it was, though. If anyone has any information that would help with my concerns, it would really be appreciated, thanks!

Additional Information: I'm female, 41 yrs old, 5 ft tall and weigh around 180 lbs.
