I have had hep-c for 9 years. Been ding real good. Im 5 foot tall weigh 115 and ride just about any motorcycle you put me on..But here dec. 4th I ended up with e-coli. I was layed up 4 9 days before I called an ambulance, stayed in the hospital for 5 more, came hoem to be on antibiotics for 21 more. Thats 35 days total I had this toxin posining in my system. But that was 6 months ago & I went from riding motorcycles to not being able to hardly bath myself. Im having serizes were I go blind..Im week ALL the time. I litterally feel like Im slowly but surly dieing a very slow death. I can't get my doctor to understand. Hes run blood work & an MRI, but is finding nothing. In the mean time Im slowly watching my life fade..What is wrong with me, what did this e-coli do to me. I was fine untill then, with the exseptions on hep-c
I don't know if e-coli makes hep c worse or not. There aren't any doctors on this forum. If you had plenty of strength before the e-coli, it doesn't seem like 30 days later the hep c would have gotten that much worse. I wonder what kinds of blood tests you doctor did. Maybe you need to try another doctor.
BTW, a MRI can't tell anything about toxins or hep c unless there are tumors.
Like Dianne, I doubt your problem has anything to do with hep C. It sounds like the E.Coli is more likely. If I were you I'd see an Infectious Disease doc ASAP. Are you anywhere near the Mayo Clinic in AZ?
