Suggest treatment for pectus excavatum, compressed heart and lungs
Inflammation of liver to be confirmed by blood liver function test
I am sorry for the current health problems you are going through.
With regards to your abdominal ultrasound, I can say as following:
- It is normal to have a liver with unusual shape due to pectus excavatum. What is abnormal is the inflammation of liver noted. Most possible cause might be the use of pain killers which are metabolized in the liver.
At this point, we cannot judge only based on ultrasound report, I'd request to run liver function test (measure AST and ALT, bilirubin levels) to understand if the function of liver is really altered as suspected by ultrasound (inflammation).
For the moment, I advise to stop taking pain killers at least 3 days prior to testing.
All the best!
Waiting for ct-scan reports to be in...
Yes, can discontinue the pain-killers until you have the ct-scan.
Looking forward to have your feedback!
