enlarged bowel

Hey, I was searching the internet for enlarged intestines and found this post.  I also have a similar history with mild autoimmune results.  I am seeing a rheumatologist due to chronic elevated sed rate, but have a history of elevated liver function also.  I have had mild ANA titer elevations.  In treating me for RA, we ran into problems with my liver, and on seeing a liver specialist, was found to have severe fibrosis due to a metabolic disorder.  I am being treated for autoimmune hepatitis.  I used to have terrible intestine symptoms until my gynecologist cut multiple adhesions in intestines during my hysterectomy then I had another laproscopy where they pushed my intestines way down away from the liver.  I still get a lot of swelling at the intestines.  It was so weird to read such similar symptoms.  Please post more if any of you get more answers.  I think the liver is still a mystery to doctors, even the ones who specialize in it....Wonder if the enlarged intestines is because of liver problems???
