hi
u have gall stone and its symptomatic means u have pain
high wbc and esr indicate infection
fatty liver is due to fat deposition in liver,it is related to it structure not function
while LFT are related to liver function.
so what u have is possible
better to consult surgeon,u might need operation to remove gall stone

I have been having problems with my stomach; especially with constipation. I had surgery to remove gallbladder and still have problem with bile movements. Recently, iI had ovarian cysts removed, the one on the left was larger than a tennis ball and the right size of glop ball. I still have pain which is across the stomach in area where gall bladder was that feels like stabbing or tightening with barb wire; even experiencing swelling. Sometimes when I do have a bile movement, it has mucus with it or slime. What could this be?
