Fatty Liver
Feb 18, 2008

I had an ultra sound done and was told I have infused fatty liver infiltration. My doctor says, however, that I should not be having pain in my liver and I am. Since I just found this out yesterday I have not had a chance to meet with my doctor. I do have high cholesterol controlled with meds and after being thin (5'7" & 118lb's)until abrupt menopause at 46 (no know cause), quiting smoking, and being on meds that cause weight gain (pain management)I have put on a lot of weight (204lb's). Both my hydrocodone (tylenol) & Vytorin are hard on the liver also. But what would cause liver pain?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Sounds like you may need to have an ultrasound to determine what may be ailing you in your right upper quadrant. The liver is not the only thing that lives there = there is also the gallbladder.
