Hi. I've been a heavy drinker for the best art of a decade and over the last few years I've experienced a lot of symptoms that could suggest liver disease. Symptoms that came and went include itchy skin, white stools, headaches, fatigue, pain under ribs. I gave up drinking recently and feel great. I am exercising, have a healthy weight and feel healthy. I bit the bullet and went for some tests, my bloods came back normal, as did an ultrasound. Is it possible to still have cirrhosis or significant scarring of the liver but have a clear ultrasound and bloods? The lady administrating the ultrasound told me that if I had scarring it was minimal because she couldn't see it. Should I be still worried? My US results are below. Thank you in advance, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
