Son had HIDA test and only had 15% function of his gallbladder so, surgeon removed it 2 yrs ago.  He was so sick before it being removed and now, almost everyday he complains of his stomach and back hurting.  They did an MRI on abdominal area a few months ago and didn't find anything.  He does have back problems also.  His liver enzymes also came back 3 times higher than what a normal adults should be so they did scan on it also and dr says fatty liver.  I'm just worried of why he is always sick and in pain and he's missed so much school over this.  I'm at the dr's office every week with him and I think the dr is really getting tired of seeing him and thinks it's in his head.  Also every time dr presses on the area where his liver is, it raises him up off the table...in severe pain.

His pain in liver area is severe only when dr presses on that area. He's just constantly complaining that he is sick (nauteous) and his back hurts. He takes 2-20mg prilosec a day and he's even been to shriner's with his back issues. He can not eat anything without having to run to the bathroom within 10mins after eating, even with gb out. He won't even eat at school because of this. He's also lost 15 lbs ( which dr said he needs to because he's overweight). The dr is wanting to said him to a psychiatrist saying he just some type of anxiety of going to school...she's run all kinds of blood work and scans and they all show up good. Just at our wits end!

Have you read about gallbladder and its removal, and also fatty liver, both on this site? Just click the links. It says that fatty liver is diagnosed with certainty only by liver biopsy. It also says that if not controlled, the condition can progress to hepatitis or cirrhosis.

Where are you from? Can you see another specialist? Or hospital like taysha said?
