Hi, I think I may have a fatty liver but not sure.
I had my gall bladder removed in 1995 and have suffered from a pain in my right upper side just under my rib cage ever since. It is particularly bad in the mornings, I feel very ill every morning until I get out of bed and start to move around. I have quie a healthy diet although I do not eat a lot of meat I tend to subsitute this with cheese which I know is not a good thing and try to limit it. Also, Ihave been a bit of a wine drinker ( a drink every night with my mealmaybe 2-3 glasses)but I haven't had a drink for 3 weeks now and do feel a lot better so I will not be going back to that. A year after having my gall bladder removed I asked my doctor for a scan on my GB as the pain felt like a burning inflamed pain and I thought I had an infection but he said it was OK so Ihave never dared to go back and ask about my liver. I have been taking milk thistle for 2 months which is making me feel better. I know if I do have 1 glass of wine I will feel OK but anymore and I feel very ill in the mornings, a feeling of being hung over even after 2 glasses, I don't think my liver can digest it. Any help or suggestions would be very helpful.I am 50 years old and I do some exercise 4-5 times a week but my stomach is very large (which I hate)Many thanks.
