I have pain in my right upper abdomin, just under lower ribs, and below. it has radiated to my lower back, and is tender to touch in my back. Feels bruised. I have no gall bladder, it was removed 7 years ago, my right abdomin has hurt since 5 years ago after my daughter was born. It was off and on, and worsened if I drank alcohol. This last week though has been accompanied with the back pain, and occasional sharp pain near my belly button, and on my left side. Any ideas??
I have the same kind of pain. I had a CT scan of my liver and they found I have a non-alcoholic liver disease. AKA a fatty liver. There isn't much that can be done about it. However, I take Milk Thistle everyday which helps a lot with the pain. I had my gall bladder taken out years ago and the pain does feel like a gallbladder attack. Or like a sword piercing through from the front to the back. I hope that the Milk Thistle helps you, too. - You might have some blood work done for high iron also. Hemochromatosis makes the liver hurt and is pretty common.
