Hi and welcome, Jodee, it sounds like you`ve had a pretty rough time of it for a while then.  Many people do say they experience pain and discomfort in the abdominal area which seems to be related to inflammation of the liver, but it`s difficult to say what exactly is causing your symptoms as there could be many different reasons why you are getting these unpleasant feelings of bloating and swelling.

Have you had a liver biopsy done at any time?  That really is the only reliable way to find out exactly what`s going on in your liver and what state of health it is in.  I`m not sure that looking at your blood results would help much but we would be happy to have a look if you`d like to post them.

Wishing you all the best, Jill

Hello everyone Im new to this forum.I had ultra sound done 2 months ago on my liver.He said he did not see much inflamation.But for the last 8 mos I have been feeling this swelling or really full feeling on boyh side of abdomen.It has been on both sides of my stomach and in my back.The feeling is so weird I can't even explain it.I am constantly rubbing both of my sides up by my rib cage and at night I feel cold on the inside.I had 80 percent of my large intestines taken out a year ago and i am having side effects from that surgery.I had blood work done but I dont know what part to look at to see how my liver is doing.Im trying to see liver doc but wont be for a few months.Can some one out there help me to read my blood work and tell me if this feeling is my liver swelling .Thanks every one
