: ive known about my condition for about 7 years,within the last year ive been up and down,im 53 years old.i also have pain under my ribcage (mild)and in several other areas.ive been told by reliable scorces that my live is swelling and is thus pushing against my ribcage,espicaly after smoking or eating meat.or anything else i shouldnt be eating or drinking.the pain is noticable but not severe.my herbalist is helping me greatly,(he is eastern)with herbs and qi-gong,the pain goes away.ive been very close to remission several times,but it hasnt quite happened yet,good luck wih your battle: : : I've been diagnoised with Hep C for a year now and was wondering if anyone else has felt pain on their right side. I know that the liver has no nerve endings and you can't feel liver pain but I have experienced some sharp pains around the liver section.

: : : : Can it be true ?

: : : Response:

: : : Yes, pain in the liver area is more and more accepted as a symptom of HCV. Many doctors still (mistakenly) believe that the liver ins an uncomplaining orgean. that has been pretty much dispelled by patients who refuse to accept that it is not real and researchers who have taken the complaints seriously.

: : : If you haven't had a liver biopsy, you should have one to determine the status of your liver disease. It is the ONLY way to know.

: : : I hope this helps.

: : I have known that I have HCV for almost 9 years. I have had liver pains through my whole ordeal. Right lobe mostly. However I occasionally get a severe sharp in my liver 4 inches to the right of my sternum, this sometimes puts me my knees. Liver pain is real. Spicy food causes me pain sometimes. High acid food and foods that seem to be harder to digest such as meat seem to cause liver discomfort for me. One substance that helps to sooth my liver discomfort is Milk Thistle extract that is 80% silymarin.
