The symptoms you reported (upper abdominal pain, leg bruising, previous history of gallbladder problems, nausea, weight loss) might indicate a liver health issue. You might want to have the following tests to detect the exact cause: liver blood tests (Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), Alkaline phosphatise, Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase (GGT), Albumin, Prothrombin time (PT), Platelet count); abdominal ultrasound and/or CT scan.
