I did that yesterday or the day before when someone mentionned no threads were opened that day.....I have to purposefully FORCE myself to stay away LOL.
No word from Mauka. Something so does not make sense in all of that. I can't understand how how how bad you must feel at 4? It makes no sense to me. I can't imagine not doing anything to get better!
I have to use some self control too! Yes, that count is so low, I don't know how you can breathe...iron does carry oxygen and if you have no iron...I dunno...breathing might be a problem?
Hey Veg, I shut down the puter after post to you last night. In response to your return question, I was not given a printout reading of my Fibroscan. I was verbally given the reading. Quite possibly they would give you one, I just didn't ask for one. My reading did not match my bx. It actually showed overall damage was less. I don't claim to understand the difference, I only guess that is why Fibroscans done within 6 months of the biopsies will effect their eventual usage.I hope we continue to have such great temperatures when you come to NC, today's high will be 68. But since I had shot night last night, I will not be out enjoying it. :(
you know when I was a 9 I had difficulty breathing, catching my breath and walking. it was HARD. i was zonked so bad the doctor made me have a chest xray just in case something else was wrong.
i am SURE if I was 4 my doctor would force me to be admitted or something...it just makes no sense to me at all.
yes, my daughter said she had lunch on her patio the other day, in Asheville...I got 2 feet of snow on the ground where I live so it will be a welcome change...
Concerning your stabbing back pain. If it is in the lower area close to the bottom of your ribs it could be kidney related. And compromised liver function will increase your cholesterol, that was another one of my flags that found HCV. My cholesterol had always been great and with my diet, genetics, and lifestyle there should have been no reason for the rise. I started tx several months later so I never addressed the cholesterol. I'm not sure how to handle it if it continues to stay high. Diet helped me with my high ammonia level, a very strict diet may be your only choice; since most cholesterol drugs are not recommended for people with liver problems. Peace
Yeeehaaaaawwww! Hemoglobin at nine-point-eight and still trending up! I'm gonna break 10 next week, I can feel it in my bones (literally - that's the Procrit at work).
Those damned platelets are threatening to head out the door again, but I'm learning they get all hissy like this, then come right on back in a few weeks or so.
It's sunny and no rain in sight here in Northern CA - hope everyone else is gearing up for a great weekend too!
So glad for you pally - you deserve a break, you and everyone here go out and have a great weekend! we all deserve a break!....it's beautiful here as well....just think that youre a lot funnier than that joke (sorry...) yeah, I know, everyone's a critic!
Thanks for the nice words folks. It means alot. Hey forsee - how are YOU holding up?
I know how your feeling ,my HGB is 9.6 and had procrit last Thurs., hoping it came up a bit.
A cruise in the Pacific goes all wrong,the ship sinks,and there were only 3 survivors : Gilligan, the Skipper and Mary Ann.
They manage to swim to a tiny desert isle. They live there for a couple of years doing what
Goofy; I hope you are a 10!
strator; I saw your post about fatigue, that is one thing I could not understand for years, before knowing of HCV, why was I so tired all the time? It gave me a mild depression also.
Post tx, I might still have the joint aches and herniated disc, but the fatigue did ease, and the gloomy outlook of the world. The joint aches are basically the same ones I had prior to tx, but some people do report getting better on that area. Maybe I had something unrelated to hcv or irreversible stuff from the chronic infection, who knows? But the fatigue, much better.
goof on the rise is good news! You will be running marathons soon.
good luck to all Friday night shooters
so glad to read your thread about your rising hemo, that has got to be the best news you have had in awhile...
Don't know if I'm allowed in this thread as my hgb this week was 13.4 LOL.
Beagel, congratulations on your son's upcoming wedding.
Glad to have you in any thread - even if we should drain you with leeches to get you back in line!
Heck 9.8 feels great. I almost opted for stairs over elevator for a 1 level parking garage the other day. That's woulda been huge. Now, with the numbers to back me up, I'm ready to go for it. Hell, I might even walk the dog. She knows when I spell w-a-l-k, but it looks like typing it is safe.
You're a vampire, so you won't even mind when they draining your blood every week. All of our bodies are so different, that's why this board is sometimes just a place to bounce things off of each other. As long as you're working on it, it'll get straightened out. Peace
Goof - Okay dude,gettin strong- now remember though you ain't playing 21. So when you look at the doc and say 'hit me' don't be prayin for a picture card.
Cuteus -thanks for responding about the fatique. That is so good to hear there's hope for relief from it. It was so much a part of my day pre tx it doesn't seem like such a big change right now, but still the driving factor to tx.
Today it was real hard not to crawl off for a nap. After the long day yesterday I posted about we had to be at the funeral at 9 then church, cemetary, then a restaraunt then everyone went back to my sister's house. I got home at 6:45 and had my chapel committment at 7pm. Felt a little guilty with all the walkin at church and cemetary along side all the 70 to 90yrolds, most on canes and I just wanted to lay down while their kiddin with each other toughin it out like it's nothin. I had to pound coffee to stay awake(they were pounding scotch). Strangely with so much sitting around at the after events I felt more tired than when I work.
Be Well All,
The pain is exactly where the gallbladder is. It's tender to the touch too. This has been going on a long while and I just assumed it was my hiatal hernia, then I thought maybe my liver after I found out about the HCV...I realize my high cholesterol can form stones in the gallbladder and all this stuff is very closely connected...it's just speculation either way and might be a moot point...who knows what they will or won't find w/ the CT scan?
My body is strange, my temperature is 96.8...try explaing that to the doctor when I know I have a fever and he says my temp is normal! My pulse is non existant on my wrist, you can only feel it in my neck...My blood pressure has always been very low, yesterday it was 100 over 80 which is not good...the 80 part anyway...just add it to the list!
Thanks Jim, The wedding will be on Oct. 28th, at the Firestone Vineyards in Santa Barbara. We are really excited. Well, 1 down and 2 to go. We are hoping the other 2 will follow.
Hey congrats what fabulous news! I wish I could fly in and give you a wedding present (a certificate for one cure and SVR).
Will Bailey be the ring bearer? :)
Hey Cougareyes - have you been on the Hep C Neighborhood messgae boards, too? I think I remember your name. Was wondering if anyone knew anything about the VX950 and NM283 new meds for Hep C. I am geno 1a/b stage 4 cirrohosis. I have to have another EGD Wed looking for more varices. Things are not getting any better. G/bladder is full of stones which are making me very sick but can't remove the g/bladder as the liver is swollen around it. I failed tx 2 times and can not take anymore Interferons. I still suffer from extreme memory loss and occasional amnesia from the treatments. I am really stuck here...lol... If anyone has any news please share!! Hope you all are getting the treatment you need......lpw
Hey all you BF's! Hope you guys enjoyed Valentines!
you are going to get in trouble again bandwith h...
