results



Today, I had my full stomach sonogram.  They checked mainly my liver and kidneys.  It was so painful when they pushed on my liver area.  Even after when it was done.  I know it's not good.  My intuition tells me and it's usually right.  I've had hepatitis since 1992, and treatment twice.  I have gen 1a so I know it's no good.  Treatment didn't work on me before so I don't know what they can do time.  Since they were checking my kidneys I hope my kidney's are okay.  But it would explain the horrible pain I have in my back on the left side.  However, I've had no fever.

I have a doctor appointment soon to get the results.

Hi. I also just had an ultrasound of my entire abdominal area. This is a precursor to my hep C clinical trial I started last week with Merck. The C-EDGE trial, ribavirin free. I was diagnosed in 1999 with 1a also. Have had two biopsies in the past, last one in 2005 showing stage 2 fibrosis. So glad to finally be on these new miracle hep C drugs.
I suspect you have gotten the ultrasound of abdomen before going on a hep C treatment protocol?  My visit with the sonographer was uneventful and painless. Just get yourself on these new hep C drugs and without the ribavirin.
Good Luck!
