I am experiencing  abdominal pain, diarrhea, tender abdomen. I have had stool tests done to rule out all basic stuff, fecal fat test, blood work, ultrasound which showed cholelithiasis, enlarged spleen (14.3cm) , and fatty liver. Surgeon not worried.

Many possibilities: There are many possible causes for your symptoms. The most helpful clues will come from a very detailed interview by a knowledgeable physician, preferably a gastroenterologist. Shooting first with lots of tests and skipping the questions usually wastes a lot of money and often results in chasing lots of dead ends.

Abdominal pain after gallstones have supposedly 'passed', what to do?

Many times, the gallbladder has multiple stones, so that even if one were to pass, others may reside or hide. In general, after one attack of gallstones, the recommendation is to have the gallbladder removed. See your md for testing. ...Read more
