Re: Hcv right side discomfort

From what I have read those with Hepatitis C are at greater risk for gallbladder problems.

Classic signs for gallbladder problems include pain in right ribs or below the ribs, pain in the back, pain in right shoulder. From my experience some of the worst pain was when I lay down at night to sleep, for a while I was having pain in right and left side ribs, so I had to sleep flat on my back all night long.

If the Dr. thinks it might be the gallbladder, the HIDA scan is the best test for gallbladder function.
