Hoping someone can relate or help a concerned soul out 😃 ....
I was diagnosed with a fatty liver in January 2019, after having mildly elevated ALT and Bilirubin. After losing 13kg (sensibly and slowly) my bloods have all returned to normal EXCEPT for bilirubin which has always been around 29-31 umol. My doctor did a further test to breakdown the unconjugated (indirect) to the conjugated (direct) which shows majority of mine 77% of total bilirubin is unconjugated. The diagnosis of this was Gilberts Syndrome - a benign condition apparently.
Fast forward to today - I still have this mild discomfort in my RUQ which has never been excruciating, but is just nagging. I had an ultrasound two weeks ago and the consultant mentioned that I have small cholesterol polyps measuring 4mm. Should I be worried?
Can these cause my discomfort?
Should I get a second opinion?
Do I need surveillance for these?
