I'm on week 8 of 12 and I feel a dull ache by my liver and a heaviness like I'm aware of my liver. I also feel really bloated and swollen, headaches and real tired. I've gained 20 pounds in 8 weeks. I feel like a swollen good year blimp !
I'm guessing you are on Harvoni or Epclusa (given you said "week 8 of 12"), my experience was that while I was on Harvoni, my gall bladder was always tender and my liver stats got a bit worse. After discontinuation at 12 weeks it took another 6 weeks or so to get it together, so to speak, and I'm now HCV negative.
One thing I have noted is that almost no-one that has posted has had the exact same experience. Water is recommended for headaches but you are retaining fluid so I don't know. Do you have access to clinical nurses at a liver clinic that you could ask?
