I'm new to the board, but it seems so helpful.
This morning, I had an ultrasound of the upper right quadrant. I've had pain under my ribs on the right side for a while now. My doc did an exam and felt a fairly hard mass on/above/near my liver. I don't drink, so she mentioned it may be a fatty liver. She is running thyroid/liver function tests as well as many others. (She took 7 vials of blood!) When I went for the ultrasound, the tech viewed many places, even around my kidneys. However, I am in a lot of pain on my right side right now, from just below my sternum (she pushed pretty hard there) around to my right flank. It's more than it ever was before the ultrasound. It's a constant, throbbing pain. Has anyone ever experienced this before??? If so, how did you relieve the pain?
The area is just really tender.
