Liver Pain??

Postby bananana » Sun Aug 01, 2010 1:03 am

Hey Y'all,

Has anyone currently on Rebif ever experienced liver pain? I've been on Rebif since April, and have had pain in my upper right abdominal quadrant on several occasions. Right by where the liver sits, as far as I'm aware. Since the docs told me Rebif could cause liver damage, I am a bit worried. Its not terrible pain, it feels more like a cramp. I havent had my blood tests yet, but will be getting them in Sept.

Has anyone else felt pain there?

Thanks!

I've only been on rebif for 2 weeks and have had no problems so far.

Seems like a long time for your first blood test..6 months...I'm supposed to get tested every month for the first 6 months, then just before my anual neuro appt.

I sure hope it's not affecting your liver. Maybe you should give your doc a call, I would.

Been on Rebif for over a year and a half now with no liver or side pain...

The problem comes with the decision of weighing the unknown with the unknown.

I would suggest you forget about the Rebif causing you a problem.

Sounds a lot more likely that you may have a minor gall bladder problem. I would have your GP check it out.
