Hi to all from Slada!

HEPATOMEGALY

I have ultrasound and it show enlarged liver 17,6 and I think my blood test are ok,AST,ALT and I do not know what is reasons?

I start to feeling pain on right side,where is gallbladder and I was thinking I have stone,but ultrasound show liver.

I am very concern and I do not know where I need to go next and what do do next.I never drink alcohol...

I am seeing my doctor on Monday,but he is not great so I have to fight for myself all the time.He will maybe tell me,no this is ok...or your blood test is ok,you do need to worry.

I need your help and suggestions.

Thank you so much!

Slada,

You need to find a new Dr if possible.

A enlarged liver can be from (Fatty Live , Hepatitis , NASH , even common viruses.

Even with a enlarged live you could still have gallbladder problems, Sometimes even with out stones it will fail to function properly

Slada,

Good for you.

Don't let it slide . You can't work at fixing the problem if you don't know what the problem is.

My Dr. kept telling me it was because of a virus (which can happen) By the time I got help I had cirrhosis and was almost dead.

If it turns out to be nothing at least you'll know

My dear Gail I am so so sorry to hear about your problem,how you doing now my friend?

I know I have to fight for myself but sometime is hard because I have bad doctor.

I am looking to find someone else but it is very hard because I was involved in car accident last year and nobody want to except me know,only after everything is done.

I am glad I can share with you my problem and get advice because I do not know who to ask for suggestions.Do you know is is same fatty liver and enlarged liver?

My report just say enlarge but not fatty?

I am confused.......

You may need some type of different testing. And it may turn out to be nothing to worry about . A specialist would better know how best to proceed.

When I finally saw a specialist it took 5 minutes before he said (you have liver disease) (Now lets find out why)

They just know more.

I have a lot of problems but I'm making it.

Just don't give up my dear friend!

No matter what is wrong with me I will feel better to know and not like now,feeling pain and not knowing what is wrong with me.I still don't have date for my appointment and who know when I will find out.

I am so sad and depress because here in Canada everything going so slow,or maybe just in my city.

Love you a lot

Slada
