I have acute Hepatitis B. Still feeling this occasional stinging in my upper right ab. Been 2 months now since all the other symptoms went away.

Is this just normal?

Had intended to wait six months for a test to see if I had passed the virus. But I think I will get checked up.

hi Rick,
The liver itself can not cause pain. Many things can cause the liver to swell. When The liver swells it stretches the capsule it sits in. The capsule has nerve endings when pressed or stretched causes pain.

Viral, fatty, and alcoholic hepatitis, are usually the cause of the swelling.
When the inflammation from hepatitis is resolved, the liver heals itself.

If you are still feeling the right sided pain, after the hep is gone, let your dr know. Ask your dr what an appropriate amount of time is for liver to
Heal. Ask your dr to palpate your liver to feel for swelling.

Ask your dr for ultrasound of abdomin, if pain persists beyond a normal time frame.

Do what is comfortable for YOU. As far as blood testing is concerned.
Let me know what's up..

Thanks PPM guy for the reply... I was tested and thankfully I am negative for HBV and my liver levels look normal.

The doctor has given me medication for stomach (Omeprazole), and I am hoping the feeling is just an ulcer which will go away. We will see over the next 2 weeks.

Hi Rick,
I wonder if you can give me a little bit more detail about how your hep b.
How did you get it?
When did symptoms start and what where they? How long has it lasted and do you still have stinging in the upper right ab even though the doctor said you have cleared it? How many months was that after contracting it?

I think i maybe have contracted it in March but only really getting stinging in upper right abdomen and my stools are floating. No nausea or weightloss etc.

As much info about your experience as possible would help

sorry I sent that before I was done. typing on my phone can be an adventure

I assume you have not been tested for hep b.. Are floating stools and right side discomfort, your only symptoms? Those 2 symptoms can be a GI issue or a possible liver issue..please get back to me
