In Nov. of 2005 I had my Gallbladder removed and the Surgeon thought my liver didn't look right so he done a biopsy. I was diagnosed with non alcoholic Cirrhosis and non active auto immune Hepatitis. I have a fatty, scarred hardened liver. I went to 2 Liver Specialists not long after I was diagnosed with this condition and both told me there was no treatment. A little over a week ago I started having pain in my upper middle abdomen and it's hard and swollen. I saw my Doctor yesterday, told him how I was feeling. He ordered Blood Tests and also an Xray of my back. He also is supposed to order a CT Scan and if nothing shows up he wants me to have an Endoscopy. I've been taking Hydrocodone "sp?" for several years which I know is not good for my Liver, also told me to take Tylenol which is also not good for me to take. Nothing helps the pain. The pain is worse when I lie down so takes forever for me to go to sleep. Sorry for the long post but I thought maybe someone on this forum might just happen to have the same symptoms. Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.
