I have fatty liver and gallbladder disease
I have been having pain under my rib cage, lots of diarrhea, and an electrical pain in my neck vertebrae following the abdomen pain. These flare ups last a week to ten days and happens every month or two.
Had an ultrasound and blood work. Was told I have gallstones and high fatty liver and referred to a surgeon. When I asked him why I have these he shrugged his shoulders and scheduled surgery.
I am a vegan, consume maybe one alcoholic drink a week, and get plenty of exercise. I have been under significant stress the past few years. I am 57 years old and female.
I would like to find the root cause of these issues before opting for surgery. Any suggestions and input is appreciated.
