I have been having a problem with right upper abdominal pain for a while now, since before I was hospitalized last month.  My GI doctor has never given me any explanation for it.  Now that area is swollen, tender, and has light purplish-reddish spots on the skin there.  Any ideas on what this could be?  My spleen was a little enlarged on ultrasound a few weeks ago so I was wondering if maybe this could be that the liver is enlarged now too?  Or maybe this has something to do with the hepatic flexure of the colon?  There have been a lot of gurgling sounds on the right side and frequent trips to the bathroom today. mad

By the way, I forgot to mention that my gallbladder has been removed 5 yrs ago.

Based on the location, and the rash, it sounds like a liver issue. Can you get your liver enzymes checked?

That sounds like a good idea.  I will probably call the dr office tomorrow and ask them about it.
