    Julie i lso had a scan and it showed no gal stones, just a fatty mass on my liver, was just told to keep of fatty foods, found that with me flour seems to aggrivate it and chocolate, also coconut oil has been known to cause severe inflammation in some cause liver pain, i was making my own chocolates using this. im now taking milk thistle tablets know for relieving liver problems and none know side affects, at one point my abdomen was very swollen too  but these tablets are easing off the pain.also im drinking dandelion and burdock tea bags, mine have hawthorn leaves in them too. look up these and read about them. im sure they will help you,though the not having your bowels open for a week and still in lots of pain id go back to the doctors i think. did you mean you have a cyst on your liver? hope you feebetter very soon, also dont drink any alchohol at the moment.

    Hi again Julie. also theres this,from Holland and Barretts

    Not sure if im allowed to mention this on hear, it might get removed.if its hurting when you eat, do you mean as you eat or afterwards?  did they actually check your gallbladder for inflammation. just to say you have no gall stones doesnt mean its not inflammed though, cant believe thwy have found a cyst on your liver and just given you pain killers, they need to find out whats causing the pain. some swear by the taking of aloe vera jiuce but then ive read in some even this can cause reactions yet my mum took this and it cleared an ulcer.

    Hi Julie,

    Sounds as if your medication is making you constipated..Did you read the leaflet that came with your medication. It might say that the painkiller your taking can

    cause constipation.  If so, go back to your doc and ask to change your pain killer meds. Also, ask the doc are you going to have any treatment with regard to the cysts on your liver.......best wishes..

    Hi julie , first you need to clean your colon and get all that gunk out. You can do this naturally by taking a tablespoon of castor oil with orange juice 2x a day x 1 to 2 days.for bowels to  moves..

      Your pain is most likely coming from not being able to go off so that causes a lot of stress on the colons, back and abdomen you need to drink something to have a bowel movement.
