My pain stemmed from an ovarian cyst that was extremely painful in February. Went to the doctor for tests and ultrasound when they discovered my liver was mildly enlarged at 17.5 cm.

My cyst is gone and no problems with that anymore, but I have this constant discomfort / fullness feeling in my right side - just below the rib cage, near the belly button.

I had a complete blood workup, and they found nothing. Everything is normal (liver function tests normal, no hepatitis or cancer etc.) The only thing they found was a slightly abnormal ERC (which measures non-specific cause for inflammation) which was 22 (normal should be no higher than 20).

I'm at a loss. The doctor said both things are normal and he says I'm fine but I still have this constant discomfort in my abdomen.

I don't smoke, I'm healthy weight, I eat healthy, I drink no more than my friends do (max 5 - 7 drinks a week). I don't get it!!

What's causing my enlarged liver and why doesn't my doctor think it's serious??

Thanks for any responses, and thanks for letting me rant / vent.
