Contracted HCV in 1977 when I got a gama globulin injection to increase my immune system after exposure to hepatitis, joke was on me, 30 years later diagnosed with HCV and liver cirrhosis.
[More] I treated the first time in 2008, then again 2011, cured of HCV 2012
MH has been a life line to me since I joined all those years ago. I decided to stay to help pay it forward,
"I'm sorry to hear. I have friends who body rock during times of stress to soothe themselves.
Have you thought of seeing someone to see if you are depressed? Just a thought JGF25 is on vacation. She returns on 25th. She may have bette..."
"Lynn has given you excellent advice. I just wanted to say you are a really nice sister to try to help her.
Both Lynn and I have been diagnosed with cirrhosis.
I was diagnosed in 2008. I treated the HCV and I get better all the time. ..."
Just a quick note to say hi!
I've taken that too for other injuries but you have to take in large, large quantities to be effective. I had lots of work to rub out thin out scar tissue on the back incisions but it wasn't possible when they did the fusion since they did an anterior approach. My acupuncturist was giving me some topical stuff...I have it at home and could give you the name of it if you are interested.
I've lost weight and need to loose more and am walking as much as I can which my pm doc says will help me best right now. If I could get the RA and he new herniations under control I think I would be able to tolerate the rest of it better.
Still have to have kidney surgery with another doc at another hospital. Ugh. I'm getting OLD!!
ive had this fusion 8 yrs now and it's done me no good. I was told it would take away the pain I was having when the second surgery failed. Don't fall for that!! I hope that your at a stage that your back will remain to be ok. If I can help in any way pleas let me know. I've dealt with this back stuff for over 10 yrs now.
Wishing you the best!
