I contracted hep C about
22 years ago while working laboratory yet it took me 22 years for anyone
to listen. I had to beg and plead for a physician to test me for hep C.
Finally Oct. 2001 I was diagnosed. I have had ALT's as high as 1200, my
ALT's and AST's now average 300 - 400. My Alk. Phos. 222. I have stage 2
liver disease. I suffer with extreme nausea and vomiting and have multiple
admissions. I suffer severe abdominal pain and liver pain. My regimen of
Oxycontin 80mg. 4X
Zofran 4mg. Q 4 hours
Phenergan 25mg. supp. Q6 PRN
Spirolactone 200mg. daily
Prilosec 20 mg. daily
Albuterol 2 puffs Q4
Severent 2 puffs daily
and two chewable vitamins daily.
If there is any hepper out
there that can help my nausea I'd luv u for life.
I am now just waiting for a transplant, did not tolerate interferon and
ribavirin. I tried to commit suicide.
All are in my prayers.
