Bloating, pain in upper right side, fatty liver. CT scan done. Suggestions?

I had a CT scan a few months ago because of lots of pain and bloating in my upper right side, it showed a moderately enlarged diffusely infiltrated fatty liver . My liver tests are still normal however the pain is worse clear through to my back and I feel like my side is so full that it will bust open soon. My Doctor says there isn t much I can do and will probably end up on a transplant list in a year. Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
This is absurd to say that fatty liver should be treated with transplantation. Only cirrhosis and terminal liver disease require transplatation and fatty liver is most benign liver condition which is primarly treated by dietary and lifestyle habits so you need to follow hepatic diet,avoid alcohol,regulate sugar and lipids in blood and lose weight. If there is no improvement you need some medicines. if there is sign of cirrhosis you need liver biopsy to find the exact cause.
Wish you good health.
