About Me: Female, San Diego, CA, member since Jan 2014
Just found out I have hepc fall of 2013, probably got it in the 1970s. Have no symptoms. I was asked if I had been tested in an er for an unrelated reason. Am healthy in every other way. Have a positive attitude I can beat this.
:) I have been praying for you at different times. I want to know your results tomorrow. How far in the treatment did you have to lower your doses? I don't want to have to do that but if my platelets get under 30 he will have to. Did your hair fall out during the treatment or after?
Please let me know what they say. I have never had any problems with hair loss (yet) or any rashes. I have an appointment to get an MRI of the liver and spleen this Friday. Sure hope that it is positive. Get back to me when you can.
Hey Sandi, Sorry I have not gotten back to you sooner. Went to my appointment yesterday...the virus is undetected. My RBC WBC and hemoglobin are low but that is expected with the treatment. That is great news. He is watching my platelets as they are down to 48 so I will be getting blood work done every few weeks till end. If my platelets drop under 30 than he will adjust my medication.
The one negative concern is my liver enzyme levels have been consistently high and he does not know why. He said that it could be some other liver disease and I am praying that is not the case. I will be having a MRI of the liver and spleen in the next week. After treatment he would like to do a liver biopsy. So that is where I am at for now. How are you.
