For around 8 months now I've been coughing up this weird coloured phlegm. I do it through out the day. It tends to be worse after eating or when I just wake up. I was told I had acid reflux and was put on tablets. They haven't been working so the doctor said to come off them.
Recently I had two liver function blood test which both came back abnormal. I then got sent for an ultrasound scan which showed I had a lot of fat around my liver. The doctor examined around my liver area and said it felt very swollen and was tender to touch. I get a constant pain around that area daily and always feeling sick. When I bloat to it always tends to be around that area.
I have recently been struggling to lose weight. Over the past year I rapidly put on 4 stone and slowly now struggling to lose it. I got referred to a specialist as they thought it could be cushings disease but this was ruled out, this specialist was the one who did my liver function tests and then referred me back to my gp when they came back abnormal.
I am now awaiting a CT scan on my liver which I have booked for 30th March. I am just wondering could this strange phlegm be connected to my liver at all? Also what could be going on with my liver? I'm feeling really lost and worried with what could be happening and what could be wrong. What is the CT scan looking for?
Any advice would be much appreciated
