pain in right rib, struggle walking, year after hysterectomy

Hi guys, I am looking for any advice or help as the doctors cannot seem to find what is wrong, I've had mri scan, cat scan, ultrasound and pretty much all the others and they all come back clear with no abnormalities. Basically had my hysterectomy a year ago to help with a weak bladder, still have a weak bladder but since the op I've had tingling feelings in my legs and a sharp pain in my right rib. I struggle to walk without a trolley and I am struggling to understand what is wrong, as i previously was a fit healthy working mum and now I can't even lift a pint of milk.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

Have you been diagnosed with a liver condition?

Hi, no I have not received a diagnosis of a liver condition, but was wondering if it is possible for liver conditions to not show up on a scan?

Hi justawoman, if you've had all those scans and they're all clear I don't think the pain is your liver. Even simple ultrasound picks up fatty liver, it shows up as bright white on there and it'll usually even pick up cirhossis because of the texture of it. Ct and mri scans are even more clear than that though. If you are still worried ask your gp for liver panel blood tests, see if it brings anything up? Hope you get to the bottom of things and feel better soon. Xxx

It may be a good idea to discuss your concerns with your GP who can then order the next investigations you may need.

We hope you feel better soon.

Hi babe I agree with others you need to have a frank discussion with your Doctor. You can't carry on the way at you are. I think you might have nerve damage but I am not a doctor. Hope you get the help you so obviously need. Hugs ❤❤❤
