I used to have that pain until I changed my diet lost few pounds and taking milk thistle plus dandelion everyday I am feeling very well now
I Feel that pain too under my rib especially after I eat but I Dont know why its there becos my HBV DNA is 61.5 and HbeAg is 0.06(negative) in June.And my doctor said its psychological and that am an inactive carriee.I advice me in what to do.
I too had few months ago for 3-4 months continuously. I stopped doing exercise and started drinking lemon juice with honey everyday. It disappeared after 1 month. I started doing exercise once it was OK.
I simply think this is related to excessive colonic gas formation and increase in intestinal microbial flora. U can check it by not remaining empty stomuch for too long, taking small meals frequently, antacid pill for a couple of weeks and some short term antibiotics course after prescribed by a good doctor. And ofcourse good herbs help.
There is no need to attribute every pain in right upper quadrant to hbv. Hbv is a silent chronic disease which manifests mostly in advanced liver damage. Most people here are carriers and with minimal inflammatory reports of fibroscan,usg and liver biopsies. This means u are as simple as other uninfected men and this pain can be due to multiple other possible reasons than hepatitis b. Mostly it is due to unhealthy dietary habits and irregular routine of living habits. Hbvers should not get overweight, avoid junk and oily food, avoid overfeeding, should regulate bowel habits and eat fresh food. Cunsult good doctors if still intractable. Most pains can easily be dealt with. Lastly remove the unnecessary phobia of attaching anything with hbv. In today's world hbv can easily be dealt with antivirals when required and thus complications can be prevented very significantly. Live ur life peacefully.
Thanks alot i but can abdominal USS scan substutute for biopsis and fibro scan becos fibro scan is not available in nigeria and i dont want to do biopsis.I screened for HBV and the lap man initially said from d beginning and later called me that its very faint almost undetectable becos the reactivity line was very hard to see.

There is no fibruo scan here in nigeria but we have abdominal USS and biosis but i dont want to do biopsis
