In November of 2000 I was diagnosed with Non Alchoholic Cirrhosis of the Liver -- The doctor's can't figure out how I got it -- It seems they say I fall into a 20% catagory where the cause is unknown -- I have to go have my liver levels checked every 3 months to follow it up -- Other than that I don't really know what else to do -- I was being checked for gall stones because I had a lot of pain on my right side and that's how they found it -- The doctor said my liver is degenerating -- Can anyone give me any information on this -- Has anyone ever heard of it -- I checked it out on the internet and found out a lot about it but most people get cirrhosis from drinking or hepatitis or a few diseases cause it like wilson's but I don't have any of the diseases or any of the hepatitis' --
Any advice out their for me??? Please feel free to e-mail me if you know of anything I can do to at least stop the pain..... ***@****
