Severe tenderness and nausea

Posted , 4 users are following.

Well a year later after telling everyone to avoid taking the omeprazole i myself have now been given them due to ongoing pain and tenderness under right rib, bloating, belching and generally feeling nausiated most the time.  Had blood tests last Friday and am waiting for a scan on my liver. I dont want to take them but nothing else seems to be helping and im real worried now. Been like this for 3 weeks now starting week 4. Im worried i have liver cancer or something as i can feel something ,like poking me when i bend over  under right rib towards the right more.  Could be a return of gall bladder problems i had many years ago maybe?

    Hope you feel better soon...I've been having  nausea symptom for the past 2 months...I don't know what's causing trying to ride it out until the new year then will get it investigated.

    Have you been checked for gallstones?  Maybe that's where the poking sensation is coming from.

    Had a liver tumor and turned out benign, as big as a child's head. And here I am still. Not every tumor is cancer either.  Mine didn't look good, but was good.

    Liver is a great organ, compensates loss of tissue and it even regrows!

    The only symptom I had was fullness since it was pressing towards stomach and elevated all liver parameters.

    Ultrasound, MRI and CT showed it clearly, couldn't be missed.

    So a scan is really good to have!

    All the best!

      Of course,

      a liver tumor that size with unknown tissue composition, pressing on stomach (or looking infiltrating stomach wall) needs to come out, better said: the whole left liver lobe with it was removed.

      Shopped around for a surgeon, who was mainly doing livers and could get operation risks down, only 2 days intensive care, heart catheter and drainages removed after 3 days, so was not too bad, hurts to walk or sit in a car for many weeks, but no suprise there. It does heal. Best thing if histology comes back 'benign'. ;-)

      The liver lobe "regrew" (the rest of lobe increased its size, but not as a tumor mass) upon checking many years later by ultrasound.

      Liver is a heck of a wonderful compensating and regenerating organ and damage has to be huge and effecting whole liver, that compromised function would impact us, which of course it does at times (e.g. hepatitis).

      Still the ability to heal is really good in livers.

      Not understood yet as to why since it usually doesn't turnover its cells often, but upon damage, it does.

      You were very lucky it was benign and you got a good surgeon. The liver is an amazing organ!
