Brief Answer:
Likely to be incisional hernia

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Presence of intestinal adhesion will usually lead to subacute obstruction.
From the description given it looks like incisional hernia which is likely to be at site of previous surgery.
Fatty liver in the presence of Normal Liver enzyme there is no cause for concern. Swelling or mass near right rib cage is likely to be either lipoma or fatty hernia of linea XXXXXXX Diagnosis can be arrived after detailed clinical examination

do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Brief Answer:
It is due to Intracellular location

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Mycobacterium aviun Intracellular usually resides inside the cell and remains dormant. So the antitubercular drugs may fail to act on it.
