Hi there. Does anybody have any advice on inflamed liver? Does this come with gall stones or something else?

Any answers will be gratefully received

    Hi so last weekend had horrendous pain in right side of stomach just below boobs, was violently sick along with it assuming as pain was so horrendous. Went to see the gp who is requesting a scan and did blood tests there and then. Said it could possibly be gall stones. He rang me the next day with the blood results to say that I had raised liver levels.

    I've had a few more nights with awful pains and others have been pain free (thank god) also have a dull ache in the day time and is uncomfortable just walking.

    I have not long got back from another gp appointment who has taken a shed load more bloods and I asked about previous results and she told me that the results had shown signs of liver inflammation

      Okay, could be gallstones, from where the pain is indicated. Inflamed liver is a different kettle of fish, caused by something else usually. What's your alcohol consumption like?

      When you have your ultrasound (the best thing for checking internal organs), try to engage the radiologist in coversation afterwards. They are a doctor, not a machine operator and they really give it as they see it. However, you have to sound like a veteran who is used to bad news and that it doesn't bother you. If you come across as worried, they will say your GP/consultant will talk to you about it.

      Good luck.

    There's definitely a connection between the gallbladder and liver issues. I know my liver results were abnormal before I had my cholecystectomy. Could be that a stone has migrated into the common bile duct and is causing this.

    Watch out for signs of jaundice: dark urine, pale stools, yellowing of skin and whites of eyes, itching and generally feeling unwell.

    What is your GP doing about it?
