Since last year, have been having warmth in back off and on for a year after eating. Ct scan was done and only showed thickened adrenal gland (no cancer) Blood tests were ok. This year having pain under breastbone and a bit to the right side after eating (no gall bladder) and have stomach pain after eating. Just had endoscopy and showed mild gastritis. Doc set me up another up for another abdominal ultrasound and suggested it may be liver stones. Sometimes I can feel pressure into back and shoulder when eating. Going for ultrasound this morning.Anyone have these symptoms and what do they do for them if it's liver stones?

hi Bevys,
I reviewed our conversation from last year. and related posts..

I would not use any flushes or internet website cures..not unless your dr approves.. wait for your new scans.. you've been looking for answers for a while now. if the new tests come back negative, you may want to try a different dr..let me know how the new scans come out.. has your dr mentioned your pancreas? sorry I cant be more help..

Recently I have been dealing with really bad acid reflux, no matter what I eat. My pain still under the right rib, but I have had that pain since after my gallbladder out in 1979.
I get it every time I exert myself , vaccume, moving lawn, pushing something heavy, or
pulling.
I have had cryptogenic liver disease with cerrhossis I was told I was stage4 grade2.
My problem is I am still taking lactulose an Xyifaxan. My problem now is the encepalopathy is'nt getting any better It is so sad to loose your mind.
If someone has encepalopathy. Will it improve after a transplant. In case I forget you all, Thank you for all the help you have given me.
Good Night

hi lavender,
I have seen your name a number of times. you have been dealing with esld for quite a while..Im just starting to see encephalopathy up close in my brother.. He is going thru a rough time, with cancer and early esld.

A successful liver transplant will give you a normal functioning liver. has your dr discussed the possibility of a transplant getting rid of the cryptogenic disease? What is your meld.

I hope your well enough to keep posting.

Hi Lavender.

Mike is 6 years post transplant TODAY...another amazing milestone...we thought he was a goner in 2010! And now look at this!

His HE was awful before transplant. He was totally normal mentally the first day post transplant.

What is your UNOS status. What is the MELD score that leads to quick transplant in your state or medical center. I can help you with that if you don't know how to use the UNOS data base site. Send me an email at the address in blue next to this post.
