@caro72 one thing I learned about cirrhosis is that there are many symptoms and I doubt anyone has all of them. If you have right upper quadrant pain, that probably is your liver. Has your doctor indicated it is or is not?

Your weight is not very high, I’m surprised your doctor wants you to lose weight. Do you know your BMI?

I was not pushed to lose weight even though I was overweight, but I did lose it because I felt it would make my recovery easier. I used MyFitnessPal to track my food and an activity tracker to help keep me motivated to exercise.
