Possible liver damage, or not?

Posted , 3 users are following.


I've done a liver functioning test today. But i was kinda wondering on your ideas. smile 

I still have the pain on my upper right quadrant area. Still makes me feel sick & tired.

But exactly a year a go I did a paracetamol overdose & was put on the IV line for 2 days.

Before that I was taking 6/7 500mg tablets of pain killers altogether & wouldn't say or do anything about it. I did this on and off for months. & even after the IV treatment.

( i've stopped and haven't abused paracetamol or pain killers for months now. Just to ensure you! )

I was wondering if this may have had some damage on my liver and could be the cause of my pain? But i don't show signs of jaudince? Is it chronic failure or something completely different?

      Hi chrissy thanks for replying.

      I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet as they think its a muscle strain / pull. But i asked for get a liver functioning test just to make sure.

      I'd say i don't have fatty liver because i'm not overweight & i eat fairly healthyly. Although it could be a chance i'm not sure? 

      Sorry to hear that you have cirhosis. Did you need any treatment for it? Other than preventing from worse damage.
