Question: I was diagnosed with fatty liver disease a few months ago; I'm just wondering if it's normal to "feel your liver" hurt after eating or drinking something sugary or fatty? It only hurts on the right side below the rib cage and when I had tests ran, the CT only showed fatty liver. Is it normal to feel pain after eating or drinking non-water drinks on the right side or is this indicative of maybe a kidney issue?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I read carefully all your concerns and I can say as follows :
1.The symptoms like feeling pain after eating has nothing to do with fatty liver.
The main causes of your symptoms are :
- gastric issues like gastritis or stomach ulcer
- IBS
- Biliary diskinezia (rarely)
This is why at you case I would suggest to do
- upper endoscopy to better evaluate stomach.
2.Other wise if the stomach will be normal than It may be related with IBS too.
3.Meantime I would suggest to avoid fatty foods and spicy foods.
You can use antispasmodic drugs to improve your symptoms like dyclocimin .
Hope it was helpful to you.

That makes sense. I know you didnt list it and ts extreme but this doesnt sound like any cancer does it? And with those items yoh listed, which would be most likely to produce a sharp pain on the right side when taking a deep breath?

Hi back
Thank you for providing more information about your symptoms.
You are reporting that you heva pain in deep breath.
This is why I would suggest you to do chest X-ray to rule out pleural and pulmonary issues.
Otherwise the other cause can mimic your symptoms .
With regards to cancer, yes it is true that your symptoms are not typical for it.
Hope it was helpful to you.
