Brief Answer:
Normal liver.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for Choosing HealthcareMagic for your query,
Asper your query,

Coarse echotexture of liver is generally due to liver parenchymal disease. Normal echotexture of liver is homogeneous in nature.

However, mild coarse echo texture of liver can be seen in normal patients. In these conditions, it needs clinical correlation and blood tests.
As you liver function tests are good and other findings are normal,so Mild coarsening is considered as a age related change and can be assumed as normal.
Just take normal diet and healthy life style.
Avoid alcohol and exercise daily.
No further testing is required.
Get well soon.
Repeat Ultrasound after a year.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

For about a month I have felt my heart flutter and at that very instant it is as if my breath is taken away. It is so fast that it is not uncomfortable but it makes me very worried. I feel it mostly in the afternoon and evening. I have never had anything like this; infact, I have never really felt my heart flutter. I had run a 10K run last November 2009 and they did a 20 minute heart test with all these suction cups on my body and an ultra sound machine next to me. After, they said my heart was fine and great to run the race. I did run and there wasn t a problem. I took this report, given to me by the Cardiologist for the run to a new doctor (Cardiologist) near my home and he listened to my heart, looked at the report and said my heart is great. He advised me to check my Thyroid. What could this be? I am 40, eat well, non-smoker and exercise on a regular basis. Thank you for any advise. Millie

So I have had some swelling for a few days now in my ankles. It goes through waves in term of pain and varies from tolerable pain to excruciating pain. The pain seems to come from my ankles and near my hips, making moving almost impossible. The past two days I have developed red lumps, the size of large mosquito bites. They did not hurt at first but today, they are hard and painful. I have not been outside or near anything that could contain bugs that could do harm and ultimately, bite me. I did recently come back from a visit to the midwest and back that was 10 hours each way. I have been to two doctors, in which they took blood and did an ultra sound but I have only received news from one doctor that my blood work is normal (Kidney, Liver, Glucose levels). They did indicate that I did have a slightly higher-then-usual blood pressure which may be an indicator or may be due to my stress and anxiety from this entire situation. I also have been having moments where my ears have been ringing along with lightheadedness. I don t know what it is but I am wondering if its allergy related. Any insight would be fantastic!
