    Jaundice and itching

    I don't have Hep C, but I thought someone in this group may have some knowledge about itching related to jaundice.

    I recently became jaundice because of a billiary obstruction. One of the symptoms I had was an intense, unrelenting itching everywhere. Once the obstruction was removed, my billirubin came down, the itching somewhat relented. Now, (5 days later), I'm having some issues with the itch. It's not as bad as it was, but it's still uncomfortable. Does anyone have any idea when the itching should stop completely?
