I can tell you the liver does not enlarge because of gas. I cant tell you if your liver is enlarged much at all but I looked around for you and found some information on the topic at a very credible website.

Enlarged liver

Enlarged liver describes a liver that is larger than normal in size. The liver is a large, football-shaped organ found in the upper right portion of your abdomen. Enlarged liver is also known as hepatomegaly (hep-uh-to-MEG-uh-le).

Enlarged liver isn't a disease. Instead, enlarged liver is a sign of an underlying problem, such as liver disease, congestive heart failure or cancer.

Treatment for enlarged liver involves identifying and controlling the underlying cause of the condition.

You can find this information @
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/enlarged-liver/DS00638

So as you can see if you do have an enlarged liver then it is critical you find out the underlying cause. Talk to your doctor and discuss concerns he/she may have and begin further testing. I hope this helps you out. Take care!
