I had a lump which was easy to feel and I was telling them that it had not changed in shape or size for months - but still same answer 'well try these other laxatives'. I want to have a better prayer life, and to be sure to pray for all of us more. They did take various other tests, but it was 2-3 weeks between each step if you know what I mean rather than fast track, as you would have with cancer suspicions. I also want to thank you for your words of encouragement; to me, to all. Peace, love and blessings, Hernando Hi Hernando, Thank you, my friend, for sharing your words and very kind words. You mentioned your Fibroscan score and it sounded like you were unsure of the fibrosis scoring used on that test.

The appointment with liver consultant on 5 Feb was cancelled, as it was apparently 'not needed' until I finish the treatment. Co infections with Hepatitis C can occur. From what I remember seeing on the doctor's screen back in December, it said Hep A - negative, Hep B -surface antigens negative, antibodies positive, and Hep C positive for all.

Blessings, Connie Howdy Hep C Warriors, I hope everyone is having a good week and staying warm. Although viral hepatitis is still a huge problem in the United States as well as the world, I am expanding the focus of my life and this website to include other issues most of us grapple with, specifically, life, death and health. We love to hear from you! I want to add a chart here that will explain it better. I never wanted to try earlier treatments due to the poor cure rates and bad side effects. Wondering how quickly those numbers come down on Epclusa and if cancer affects its success rate. Started Epclusa 3 weeks ago, as well as another drug to prevent B from reactivating.
What steps are you doing for testing, treatment, or recovery from Hepatitis C? And Joy, a beautiful reminder to always look for joy in every moment and day. Main worry is the impact on cancer interrupted chemo, and no idea when will be able to restart , and vice versa that cancer might affect the hep recovery chances. I practice this myself with praying about what the Lord would have me to focus on for this year. They said the results will be ready in a couple of weeks, hopefully in time for my oncology appointment on the 23rd January. Many Blessings my friends, Connie Good morning Connie, Karen, and all the hepc warriors.
Can't even blame all this errors on 'chemo brain' anymore, since I am not on chemo! Do not stop or alter treatment or medications in any way unless your physician advises. Then my Hepatology dr mentioned a cure!! To answer your questions, the 'other drug' for B is Entecavir. A gentle walk everyday is a good idea if you can manage that, but dont push yourself. Many folk over on this side of the pond , can sign-on to receive most copies of their own labs via an on-line computer route. It means steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc.
You need to be a doc to be a patient nowadays. After five weeks there was no sign of virus. Believe me when I tell you, you have compassion for others. I've been having breathing problems. Are you feeling worn out or discouraged with Hepatitis … You can start this year on the right foot beginning with 10 proactive steps for your health and well-being. Anyway, once I got into the hands of specialists, things moved fast and the care was excellent. Praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Attempt to gain the best cooperation you can out of them. I am guessing it's cost-cutting and general lack of joined up thinking. Needless to say none of these things started till my 3rd week of harvoni. The pain appears to be due to a lactic acid buildup due to a mitochondrial dysfunction. Love it, Everyone have a good weekend.
I have been getting hives, swelling eyes, lips swelling, face, joint pain, swelling and red hands which often times hurt at the finger tips and the tips turn very red and also tiredness. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post. But the more reading you do, you can see that some people have far firmer livers than just 12. No matter where you are in your journey with battling Hep C you have a support group here who understands. Had blood work done after six weeks and there is no sign of Hepatitis C.
You might consider seeing if that option could work for you, if you cannot enlist their better aid in keeping you well-informed and less in the dark. I would like to know what they decided to give you regarding the B - you mentioned they put you on something for the B? Yes, it was the chemo drugs that I was wondering what you had been on, and if other than the original bowel surgery, whether chemo was going to be the only other therapy for the Ca. Anyway - just wanted to say, I have been reading this forum in the last few weeks since Hep diagnosis, it's been great help, thank you! The data of a single fibroscan shouldn't really be looked at alone in isolation. So I was glad for the transfusion. I no longer live with the uncertainty of hep c Lol! Quite a few things can make the results somewhat over or under-accurate to degrees - influences and variables such as also having a fatty liver, ascites, tumours, simply being obese, or operator error! Have you looked into treatment yet to cure your Hep C? Just got a blood test a few days ago. I have gone to several types of doctors and have taken several tests over the last 18 months.
