Hello fcmmark Sharp pains in my upper right side of my stomach
What is your latest bilirubin level? Also, go to this link and fill in the data and let me know what your current MELD is please. MELD calculator - OPTN
Neta, let your doc (s) know what you are going through and ask for some help. Is your doc a hepatologist? Better a specialist than a GI generalist. Constant pain should get their attention, but about the only thing that got my doc’s attention was my bilirubin level. When that too high, he wanted to do an ERCP on me.
The pains I had were sharp, but tended to not last more that a few seconds, although there were some notable exceptions!
Pancreatitis is a pretty common pain with this disease. It seems that once you have gotten it, it will reoccur more often with fatty foods and a poor diet. At least that’s what I am experiencing.
Let us know when you get your blood levels tested.
