I am 52 and had a few slightly raised ALT /AST tests over the last 2-3yrs. I have been quite fatigued during this time and had a US scan 2 yrs ago which showed a slightly fatty liver. This was never followed up. Having had a lot of abdominal pain on the left for some time which I repeatedly told various GPS about, I was told I had ibs, needed to lose weight, had chronic fatigue, was depressed and so on. Had a recent US scan and which suggests a degree of cirrhosis on left lobe and fatty paramchymal tissue on the right. I am really shocked and frightened for my life. I am a single parent of a 13yr old an feel like my life is about to fall apart /end. Why did primary carers leave it so long to investigate of warn me of the potential risks 2 years ago. Are the scans conclusive or could it be increased level of fatty liver? I can't believe this is happending to me.
