Where is the pain and the swelling? Hep C could cause liver cirrhosis in some patients. The liver cirrhosis would cause abdominal pain and body swelling. You should get an ultrasound for the liver. If the symptoms of breathing problems are absent or mild, covid may not cause you any special harm.
Is your hepatitis C under control now? Are you taking any medications? Which body part is affected by pain and swelling? The treatments for hep C and Covid 19 are not contradicted. Both of them are antiviral medications. The only thing you should keep in mind is to avoid medications that may lead to further liver injury.
