A 58-year-old male asked:

I have cirrhosis and am experiencing both right and left flank pain. I am decompensated. Is this pain associated with the disease?

Possibly : Two common things that could cause bilateral flank pain in decompensated cirrhosis are ascities and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (sbp). The latter is a more pressing concern and usually presents with fevers/chills, but not always, and requires medical attention as soon as possible.
