I have had upper right abdominal pain and high ALT enzymes the past several months. Also quite fatigued and bloated often. I started taking Losartan 50mg a day, propranolol xl 80mg a day and buspirone 10mg per day just a couple of months prior. I am having a CT scan tomorrow and am a bit nervous. My DAD died of Pancreas cancer at age 56. I am only 41. I also had my gallbladder taken out about 18 months ago. The symptoms are quite similar, except for the elevated enzymes which I never had before. Could this be caused by my medications?
Your pain description is liver pain, not pancreas. Propranolol carries a warning that the patient should be watched if there is liver damage. Most meds filter thru the liver and some can be very hard on it. The ALT is a liver enzyme. It is released if there is any harm to the liver. There are many things other then cancer that can happen to your liver, so I have to say, try to relax and think that it doesn't have to be cancer. If you have to today tell yourself that over and over and over. I know its impossible not to worry about it.
I'll be pulling for you, and put you in my prayers today. I wish you health, let us know what you find out please.
