I’m new, hello. I had some liver function and an ELF test a fortnight ago and an ultrasound scan and received a terrible shock at the Drs last week. I was told my liver was enlarged and fatty and I was referred to a consultant as my ELf score was 11.0.
I don’t drink, smoke, do drugs and I’m now terrified that I have liver disease and it can’t be reversed. I have been overweight for a while which got worse after a traumatic time at work 2 years ago and have literally done no exercise or eaten well. I was also on a long term drug lanzoprole, stopped taking it this week.
I feel like I’m in shock and am terrified to be honest. I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it but by pure luck found this site tonight.
Since then I have eaten healthily and lost 4lbs, I have also started exercising. The only symptoms I had were severe itching and occasionally a dull pain in my right side.
I understand that no one can really help until I have seen the consultant, 3 months away, but unfortunately the Internet is a wonderful thing and I think my research has made me worse.
I I would be very grateful if anyone could reassure me a little bit and offer any advice.
Thank you for reading,
