I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM SERVERE RIGHT SIDED AND UPPER QUANDARANT PAIN AND DEEP SIDE ACHING PAIN, SOMETIME GOES TO THE BACK AREA FOR 2 MONTHS. GASTEROLOGIST HAS PERFORMED 3 CT SCANS OF THE ABDOMINAL. 1ST CT (9/21/06)NO CONTRAST (BARIUM) IMPRESSION:HEPATIC STEATOSIS,CHOLECYSTECTOMY. 2ND CT (9/29/06)(BARIUM) IMPRESSION:NO EVIDENCE APPENDICITIS, ENLARGE LIVER 19.5 CM. 3RD CT WITH CONTRESS BARIUM AND INTRAVENOUS CONTRAST IMPRESSION:DIFFUSE HEPATIC STEATOSIS.WHEN COMPARED TO CT (5/9/03) IMPRESSION:MILD HEPATOMEGALY AND FATTY INFILTRATION OF THE LIVER. BLOOD TEST LIVER AST,ALT,AKK WERE ALL NORMAL RANGE BUT AT THE HIGHER END.MY WHITE BLOOD COUNT HAS BEEN RISING SINCE 2002. START AT 9.1 (2002),11.0 (6/2006) AND 12.6 (9/2006). I HAVE HAD A COLONOSAPY (CLEAR)(10/2006). ESOPHAGUS HAS BEEN TESTED ONLY FOUND MY ACID RELUCTS. KIDNEY STONES HAS BEEN CHECK ALSO (CLEAR) MY DILEMMA IS THAT THIS PAIN IN GETTING WORSE. i ALSO HAVE NAUSEA, STIFNESS IN MY LEGS.I AM ON PAIN MEDS BUT I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT. DOCTOR DON'T THINK FATTY LIVER IS A PROPLEM. I REALISE I NEED TO LOOSE WEIGHT BUT IN 2003 I WAS 40LBS LIGHTER AND THE FATTY LIVER SHOWED THAN TOO. I AM AFRAID THIS COULD GO FURTHER LIKE CANCER OR SOMETHING. I HAD A FRIEND WHO DIED IN 3 MONTHS AFTER THE SAME CITUATION AND HER LIVER BLOOD DID NOT RELECT HIGH UNTIL 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO HER DEATH. CAN YOU HAVE A SERIOUS LIVER PROBLEM EVEN IF BLOD TEST DON'T REFLECT IMMEDIATE HIGH LEVELS. ANY SUGGESTIONS WERE I CAN GO NEXT.:mad:
