no insurance



I'm having pain in my side as well as bowel movements.  The pain is where they focused on while getting the sonogram.  I haven't felt like doing much.  I can't just sit down and read.  I'm a little hyper yet lazy at the same time.  I think I'm trying to figure all this out.  How did this happen? Why did it come down to cirrhosis.  However, in a way I expected it.  Back in 1998, when I had my first biopsy, they found some scarring.  They did some treatment then but it didn't work.  So, in a way I knew it was coming.  I abused alcohol so I guess this is my punishment.  That's just the way I feel.

I have something important that I was going to do - move to Wilmington, NC to be with my son and grand kids who are 2 and 5 months.  I had planned to go for a 3 month vacation to search for a permanent place to live.  These seems out of reach if I have cirrhosis.  I don't know the plan until next week if even then, but I'm going to see hope I get to go.  I don't have insurance so I wouldn't have the resources in place that I do here.

I'll keep praying and hope that my dreams will still avail.

Hi Vicky,
I'm in pretty much the same place as you with waiting for a sonogram and waiting to find out how bad the cirrhosis is.
But you know cirrhosis sounds and is bad but it isn't neccessary the end. Lots of people abuse alcohal and don't get cirrhosis so please don't feel you had this coming.   I think you should always strive towards your dreams.  If you want to move than focus on how to make that happen not on how it might be out of reach.  It might be just what you need to feel positive about things.

That was nice.  I needed that - think you.  I was just sitting here thinking about a good diet.  What to eat what not to eat.  I guess I'll research it.  That's all I've been doing lately.  I can't keep my mind on anything else. Once I go to the doctor next week maybe he will shed more light.    

Have you already had your sonogram?  I got the sonogram but I don't see the liver specialist until next week.  My primary doctor told me some of the results.  Like - well your liver suppose to be smooth and yours isn't - you have cirrhosis.  It was bold!  I was like okay and what else. She said you'll have your appointment next week.  So I have everything going through my mind. Liver cancer, tumors and other possibilities.  I've even been looking a liver transplants.

I hope everything comes out for you as well and I'll pray for both of us.
