Hi there, Id and Blue have given you excellent advice I understand that you don't want to stop your tx. I would have someone take a look at it right away. Is there any way you could have hit it and it is a bruise albeit a bad one due to low platelets? I am worried it might be something serious but I completely understand that you want to continue the...

Hi while your levels are a little high, if I were you I would check the medications you are taking. Medication can raise the levels. Also if you had a drink the night before the testing that could have elevated the enzymes Have you spoken to your doctor? I am not a doctor just a patient like you. Is this the first time your enzymes have been elevated? ...

Thank you so very much for sharing this information, it will help many people about to get a biopsy. Great news about your liver. I often wonder if my biopsy was wrong, he did not take the correct amount of sample. It was a bad experience for me. I will check in to this with my new doctor :) Dee

Hi there, I had a biopsy, I was given a twilight drug, it went very quickly, I was surprised. I was sore afterwards. Saying that, I just read over in the HCV Forum that there is a recently approved Fibroscan or test that is supposed to be just as good as a biopsy. I read others saying how great it will be to have this test vs the biopsy. I will try to fi...

Hello there! While it is very bad to drink while taking tylenol I commend you for being so conscientious about it. Many young people think it can't happen to them but there are people on here in their 30's who have damaged their livers. You only get one. They do make something similar to hydrocodone without tylenol, I think it is called oxycodon...
