Hi everyone, I am new to this so I may appear to be mixed up lol. My husband was diagnosed with cirrhosis and hep c 3a July/07 after a trip to the local emerg with what we thought was a flu of some sort. They ran routine blood work and found elevated blood work results and scheduled a ct scan for the next day as well as sending him to a local internist for 5 days later. They drained 500 cc of fluid from his abdomen and the ct scan showed shrinkage of the liver and obvious signs of cirrhosis as well as enlarged spleen. To make a long story shorter, we asked to be referred out of town and were sent to London Health Sciences Hospital the end of August. They put him on furosimide and spirolacolone and lactolose, told us he couldnt be treated for the hep c because his platelets are in the 50's
and they fear his liver will not tolerate the hep c treatment in the condition he is in. We were told to wait 6 more months to see how he is doing. Its frustrating because now he has severe daily headaches, dizziness, hand cramping so bad he cant even finish his meals because he cant hang on to his fork long enough to eat without cramping. Went to see family doc here in Guelph, she says these are the lows and you will have them from time to time. Called London and they bumped up his appointment 2 months but secretary says doc told her hand cramps and headaches are probably due to something else and back in November they felt he was doing much better and Guelph should be handling it ( holy s**t does anyone know what they are doing ) I feel like we are being pushy but its my hubbys life here, and they dont seem to care much. Can anyone suggest anything ????? How should we handle this and is there things that we should be asking for ??? Thanx for listening and thanx for just being he
Just wanted to start you a new thread to introduce you to all of HealingWell-
