    hi sarah  i had my gall bladder removed 10 years ago , and wasnt given any dietary advice ,which is why an ultrasound on my liver over a month ago , shown a fatty liver. so with a low fat and limited alcohol diet , it should reverse the fat in my liver , so it could be that as the gallbladder fails to do its job properly ,(and that is to break down the fat ),your liver could be storing more fat than usual .

    Hi Sarah, sorry, I haven't had a mass on my liver, but I'm proof full liver transplants work well! I know it is worrying but the best thing to do is wait for the results from the scan. There are lots of causes of liver mass which are non-cancerous and one that is common in ladies is a hemangioma (just as an example of one). It's a load of blood vessels that get tangled & doesn't generally need treatment. 

    I'm not a doctor but just trying to say that there's a lot of reasons  / things it could be that aren't bad. I understand it's concerning, but try to wait for the results before you worry yourself into a condition. Modern medicine is amazing, even if it turns out to be problematic.

    let us know how you get on. Chin up my dear, hope it's nothing....fingers crossed for you.
