I'm Weak drank again.... liver now hurts

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been a slight heavy drinker 6- 8 beers every night for just over ten years. I'm 32 years old quit alchole a couple of months ago. I quit as was having pains in my right upper side. So I decided to stop drinking I managed 2 months I had bloods taken they came back fine. Had an ultra sound i was told all is fine but I do have a small scar on my liver. The pains cleared up to . Thinking I was fine I went to the pub a few nights ago and to my sister birthday party got really smashed drank 4 days in 9 now I'm having the pains again. So it must be my liver as it stopped when I stopped drinking and had started again. The ultra sound said I'm fine tho is it wrong ? The lady must of been experienced as she was teaching another nurse what are your thoughts ???

    who did your ultrasound is not experienced enough to make a diagnosis. 

    you need to take the ulrasound report to the doctor, or consult with the doctor about your condition.

    My thoughts are even if your fine now you really need to take stock and think about the consequences if you don't stop, I certainly wish I had prior warning because I would have stopped as the pain is like no other when you get to my stage.

    Please please try your best to stop altogether and why don't you chat to your G.P as well

    Good luck

    The ultrasound person is not qualified enough and they should never tell you a diagnosis that is the liver teams job so make sure you see them
