I am Dr ken and I will be helping you today
Can you give me the ultrasound report?
I'm afraid I don't yet have the report. All I was told at the time was that there were some changes to the liver but nothing to worry about
Let me explain a bit.
Thanks please do
The question of operation is asked to get an idea as to find out what is expected to look for and also to look at the specific organ. This is a normal question asked. Nothing specific.
Mild changes in liver must be -
Increased echogenecity of liver.
This is called -
Diffuse fatty infiltration of liver.
This is seen with obesity/ excess alcohol intake/ side effects of medicines.
Unless there are signs like - Irregular liver margins/ increased or reduced size of liver - This would not worry me.
Does this make sense?
Is that serious? I am on lots of meds inc. gabapentine, thiamine, vitamin B, codeine
No mild changes on liver does not worry me and is not serious. Please calm down.
Next step -
OK thank you - born worrier! I'm happy now!
Avoid alcohol/ reduce excess weight if any/ exercise regulary/ have balanced diet and adequate fluid.
Thank you. rying to keep active but prolapsed disc and arthritis in knees doesn't help!!
I do understand. Limiting fatty diet would help.
Do consider to rate my answer. Best
