Can you have chocolates after recovery from jaundice ?

My age is 27, Before 5 months, I was detected for Jaundice , at that time, Billurubin level was 5. Last 2 months Blood report suggests that Billurubin level has come down to normal. Can I start taking chocolates? My friend has brought some US chocolates, I have taken one, will it create any chance to increase my Billurubin level. Can I start having a normal food? Or still do I need to follow the food restrictions. Now a days I am feeling very weak as well. Earlier me weight was 77 and now it has reduced to 64. What kind of a diet can I follow to rebuild my lost weight. My Height is 5 6 . Also, I am a non-vegetarian, I havent taken any non-veg foods for past 5 months. When can I start having these foods...:) Also, USG abdomen study suggested that I am having a mild fatty liver . Thanks

Now a days I am having a digestion problem as well. My doctor has suggested me to take Tab.Diapep for 10 days (1 -0 -1).

you can definitely take chocolates n every food you wanted to have. Liver will take 45 days to come into its normal position.
Radiologist Dr. Pranav's  Response
Oh yes dear you can take chocolates.

As liver after hepatitis takes abt 45-60 days to recover so it shd be normal now if your blood tests are normal.
Weight loss after hepatitis is natural, so relax. Your appetite will improve, as you will start having craving for fatty foods again.

Fatty liver is a condition of health where liver deposits excess fat. It could be due to your lifestyle or a sequale of hepatitis. Do some exercise like walking...daily & take less of red meat & high cholesterol foods.

I am diagnosed with jaundice by my doctor. It all started with high fever (104°F) then doctor called for first blood test and urine test which turned out to be normal and after medication the fever was gone , meanwhile I had breathing difficulty which was treated (a chest x-ray was done , all normal) , then after 2 days a blood test was done again and I had billirubin (5.47) . I was told I had jaundice . medications are given and meanwhile an ultrasound was done which says : Mildly diffusely hyperechoic liver echotexture with diffusely thickened , oedematous walled of gall bladder and peri-portal cuffing suggestive of hepatitis . after 2 days i have pain in right part of abdomen . I wanted to know my doctor is giving me 2 liver tonics (Livfit & valueLiv) and 2 capsules (Essentiate-L & Pantocar-D) ,are the medications correct ? Because he is not an gastroentrologist . And how much days would take for my recovery? What food I should avoid or take ? And cautions etc ? And what does pain signify? Please help Ps : i used to have white coloured facies but now it is perfect and naturally coloured and the urine is reddish brown in colour. I have occasionally occasional coughing also.

I am a 70 year old female. I have had IBS most of my life, but one year ago I began to be severely constipated and only having a bowel movement every seven days and only then because I have had to resort to using a laxative. I did add more fibre to my diet and am trying to drink more water. The only blood I have noticed seems to be on the outside of the stool, therefore, I think it s only because of the colon lining being irritated. I have abdominal pain everyday, which is sometimes generalized, but most recently the pain in my left lower quadrant has become quite intense. In the past month I started taking ClearLax , which is similar to Restoralax and have increased fibre and drinking more prune juice, hence, bowel movements are more frequent and softer. Having said that the pain still persists. I also experience what would seem like liver pain which seems to be in the entire liver area and is quite intense sometimes. An xray last year showed a fatty liver. I was referred to a general surgeon in Dec. 2013, and he did not examine me at the time, but booked me for a colonoscopy which I can t get an appt. for until June. He also has booked me for an MRI, but the wait time for that is extremely long, could be a year, if I m lucky. As another opinion, do you feel that this could possibly be something serious.

This is what my test results say. I am freaking out as a friend of mine just lost a kidney to cancer. I can't get an apt for a urologist for 2 weeks. Should I be worried? The right kidney measures 10.8 cm in longitudinal dimension. The left kidney measures 10 cm in longitudinal dimension. Several calcifications are seen in the left kidney, measuring up to 5 mm in the interpolar region, compatible with nonobstructing calculi. There is a probable parapelvic cyst in the upper pole of the left kidney, measuring 9 mm. There is no hydronephrosis. There is no intra-abdominal ascites. The imaged proximal portions of the aorta and IVC are unremarkable. IMPRESSION Nonobstructing left renal calculi. No hydronephrosis. Hepatic steatosis.
