do adenomas come back?

I had surgery in April to remove the right lobe of my liver because there were numerous adenomas on it. I had a CT scan on July 6th & the liver surgeon/specialist said everything looked good & the adenomas had basically disappeared (was on birth control, but stopped in February). Now, for the last few days, I have had excruciating pain in my right side & I don't know what to do. I'm at work today & it is almost unbearable, something must be wrong. I have an appointment this Monday to see the liver guy & want to wait until then because he knows my case & he's the best in the state (MN). Only thing is that I'm really scared right now. Does anyone know if adenomas can come back all of a sudden (within a month) and/or show up in different spots other than your liver (like your colon/intestines)?

Re: do adenomas come back?

Hi There

Was wondering whether your liver doctor was able to answer the question about whether adenomas can come back....

I recently had a benign mass removed from my liver - unfortunately the pathology was unable to determine if it were Focal Nodular Hyperplasia or an adenoma.

I am interested to know if you were told that adenomas can come back as I have had mixed information!

PS how did you check up go?

pain 1 year out?

I also had that question, and my GI and surgeon told me it was very unlikely.
I am 1 year post-op from having a massive heptic adenoma removed from my right lobe. I still have twinges of pain on my right side every so often, is this normal 1 year out? I know it was a huge surgery and just wondered if it was always last?
