liver pain

My daughter has UC, PSC, and AIH.  She has been having severe pain in upper right quadrant for months.  We're getting no real answers from the dr.'s (GI, Pain Management, Pain Psych.).  What could be causing this pain?  We're desperate for help on why and how to help her!

Does PSC  refer to Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis?

I'm a 34 year old female with UC and PSC and had upper right quadrant pain periodically this summer and found out it is caused by gall stones stuck that get stuck in the ducts.  Last month, it was in my bile duct and this month it is in my cystic duct.  Some stones can be removed through an ERCP.  For normal people, they just take out the gallbladder, but for PSC patients that becomes more complicated and they might not do it (they won't on me).
