Liver pain

Hi I had a successful liver transplant (which I am very grateful for) 2 years ago in February, I had no pain after my operation but just before Christmas I have been getting some pain and discomfort does anyone know if this is normal to feel pain this long after my transplant please?

Before and after transplant I get a "feeling". It's not painful but I'm aware of my liver. I mentioned this at my last consultation and the consultant seemed unconcerned. But mine is in no way painful.

Thank you Rodeojoe I say "painful" but its more a discomfort really, pain is very difficult to explain, Im not doubled over in pain but Im aware of some feeling there.

Yes so I think it's probably nothing to worry about. I hope so! But it does occur more some days and not at all on others.

Yes its not constant and its bearable I will mention it the next time I go for my check up thank you Rodeojoe

I'm 16mth post op after emergency L transplant, so don't know what pain etc to look for, so every pain, etc I got I called co ordinators & mentioned it when there for appointment. Have always been told nothing to worry about can be discomfort from scarring tissue & obviously, especially fairly early on we are looking for any twinge etc, but discomfort from scar tissue is quite normal. Some people get none & some get a lot that never goes away. I'd just mention at next appointment if not to far away or ring coordinators am sure they will be able to reassure you. Hope all ok x

Hello xxx apparently in the medical world 😂😂 you can't have 'liver pain' ???? Although there are many that would disagree xx hubby (rob) often says he has pain in area of liver - his is different tho as he has Hep C and its battering the new liver so we associate any pain he has with that xxx

Definitely worth mentioning at next appointment or if you are concerned give local liver nurse a call or GP - don't sit and worry about it as there will be someone that can either arrange some bloods or talk it through with you 😘😘😘😘😘

Oh Hun 😘😘😘😘 fingers crossed so much for you xxxxxxxx that's what they have told rob 😩😩 and it sounds like what happened with the last treatment rob had - every blood test was only small drop 😫😫 haven't been to see nurses yet about this new treatment but thought I read that if there wasn't a significant drop then they stop treatment ?? Have you heard of that xxxx let's be positive 😘😘😘😘 when do you finish ???? Big hugs and lots of love ❤️❤️❤️❤️
