Hello pitcher.james,

Welcome to the forum. Since you had a radiology done and have an enlarged liver, you need to be very careful about your diet and health. Hope you are already immunized with Hepatitis A and B vaccination. If you have not taken it yet do get immunized to stay safe and get faster relief from your symptoms.

Since you have a high bilirubin content in your blood, it was better for you to get admitted and treated in a hospital. You need IV fluids and necessary antibiotics to get better soon. Liver is one of the main organs of the body, do not neglect. You are getting loose stools because your liver is unable to digest food properly. You can take some antidiarrheal and antacids to feel better.

You need enzymes that will help the functioning of the liver and aid metabolism. You should eat boiled food, avoid fried oily spicy junk food. You can take soups, juices and fruits or berries. Take oatmeal and porridges made lightly. You may not be able to digest dairy products or eggs, avoid it. Take home made substantial food. Keep yourself well hydrated. If you feel weak do not stay at home, you need some investigations ( blood, stool tests and USG ) and care in a hospital.

Have a good day. Take care.
