Hi thanks everyone. I’ve had a fibroscan scan with a score of 6.1 kpa. Also on the paper work I received after in the post.” it's says the scan was IQR 7% “. I have no idea what this means .I’ve tried to google it but haven’t found an answer. Could someone help me with this? Also On the letter I received from the Gastroenterologist it actually states he’s 90% sure my problems are not liver related.
The thing is I’m 32 years old I’ve been a heavy drinker for ten years. I’d say 40-50 units on a good week and 70-80 on a bad week. never really more than that. For the last year I’ve only drank once or twice a week. Probably about 20 units which up until a few years ago was within U.K. guidelines of 21 units a week.
I decided to cut down on the drinking about a year ago because I started to have these health problems.
My problem is quite often (not all the time) when I drink I get this weird feeling In my right flank feels like butterflies are tapping my skin only on my right flank or it feels like my right flank is filled with air or water it’s hard to explaine. Then the next day (again not all the time) my flank has a dull ache. My stools are often yellow. I Put the yelllow stools down to my acid reflux which I’ve had for two years as it’s a common symptom of reflux. My doctor dosnt seem concerned. But I’ve just read on line that reflux can be a symptom of liver problems.
Doctors say the pain I get is most like IBS gastritis and reflux I’m not convinced.
I’ve had many blood tests all normal except the last with slight raised GGT the doctor wasn’t concerned. I’ve had 3 ultrasounds all clear. Good results on fibroscan and told I have a healthy liver.
Do you think I could have liver problem even thought doctors say I have a healthy liver? I’ve been tested for hep. I’m all clear
Any ideas ?
