Old member looking for some advice...

Hi all, I had my daughter back in July 2012 and it was an amazing experience, one that I hope to have again.  Here is a little background of what has been going on since.  My daughter aside (everything is great with her) I was diagnosed with a hepatic adenoma (caused from years on birth control pills) in March 2013 and underwent and open liver resection on June 13 of this year.  I am left with a HUGE scar across my abdomen and was incidentally diagnosed with fatty liver disease.  Going forward, I wanted to know if anyone has any experience/knowledge with this and if in fact it will be safe to get pregnant again.  My doctors seem to think it wil be just fine, but I have my worries.  In dealing with the fatty liver disease, I was told to lose weight and exercise, which I have.  But I must admit, I have been feeling real down since all of this hit me.  I kind of feel like I was robbed from my time with my daughter and its upsetting.  I am now seven weeks post surgery and finally starting to hold her again :( Thanks for listening.

 I'm so sorry you had to go through that!  I unfortunately don't have any insight to offer, but it sounds like your doctor is pretty optimistic and that's a really good thing! Sending positive vibes your way and hoping for the best for you and your family!

I'm sorry as well, I can't imagine going through all of that. Your doctor does sound optimistic though, which is good! If I were you I would try to get a second opinion from another doctor, just to be sure. FX, hoping for a smooth ride from here on out. Keep us updated!
