Thank you for your query.

You need not worry about the bilirubin report. It is within normal limits. Just the bilirubin level is not indicative of anything. It needs to be evaluated with the other liver function tests.

As you are complaining of pain in the right side below the ribs I would suggest that you get your ultrasound for the whole abdomen done. This shall rule out any structural anomaly in the region.

I hope your loose motions are controlled now.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you all the best.
