Always ask for a copy of your lab work. They might grump a bit but it's handy to have. I don't say this so that you can self diagnose but rather so you can be sure when something comes back different. Liver enzymes will indicate liver issues. Check you sed rate and alk/phos. These to can easily be off from the medications but you can point these out to eleviate some of your fear. I am currently waiting on a liver biopsy because my enzymes have been off for years. Very easy to blame the meds but I want to know that they know what
s going on. I also had my gall bladder removed last summer with the hope that it would eliminate the high right side abdominable pain. It didn't. This pain can also indicate something in the liver area. Please don't hesitate to ask your doctor questions or get another opinion.
