upper right abdomenal(abdominal) pain

At just over a month post Tx I still have upper right abdomenal (abdominal) pain. Does anyone else have this post Tx? I thought this would be gone now. I used to have short duration joint pains in various joints which I referred to as migratory arthritis. This now has confined itself to one joint only, which the doctor says is true arthritis. So that's good. I seem to have way more energy now. The down side of this is it keeps me from getting a full night's sleep. Overall I don't really feel any better than I did before Tx but it seems to be improving daily. My skin rashes are clearing .... slowly. My brain fog is clearing .... slowly. My wife seemed to think that one day after my last Riba capsules were consumed, that I would return to "normal", not that I'd ever been fully normal. While on Tx I used my thighs exclusively for injection sites. I couldn't bear the thought of having those huge, itchy, red circles that I would always get at the injection site, on my abdomen. Now that my red circles are all gone I've noticed that the hair on both thighs is missing around the areas I used to inject. I think I had hair there before. I wonder if it's gone for good. Maybe we can market this sh__ as a permanent hair removal technique. ;o)

I can’t address the URQ pain; I never had it prior to, during, or after treatment. I too felt good after treatment; in fact, within weeks. I tolerated the drugs fairly well, so I might not be a very good barometer for this though. I did deal with significant depression after treatment, but not during. I attribute some of this to premature withdrawal of antidepressants that were issued prophilactically prior to Tx meds; be careful getting off those if you took them.

For injections, I used stomach only through my first treatment; and thighs only for the second one. I noticed hair loss at both sites, along with tissue loss (or fat loss) on the ops of both thighs toward the end of the second Tx. I also developed a strange numbness, although there was some pain involvement as well in the thigh injection area.

All returned to normal within six months post treatment.

Good work finishing up; let us know the outcome—
