Welcome, Lucky Dog. I'm glad you've found something that is working for you. LDN has been mentioned in the forum previously. However, we always urge liver patients to check with their doctors before taking anything new. If this is obtainable only by prescription, then there isn't a problem if the doctor agrees that it might be beneficial and is willing to write an Rx for it.
However, this forum is primarily for support and not for medical advice.
Hi, LuckyDog! Now I understand your screen name! You are one lucky dog, indeed. I also went through a lot medically in a short period of time--basically 7 major surgeries in less than 6 years. The last one was last May. I cleaned up my diet, also, and had been feeling much better. I am a 1a genotype and have been reluctant to try the combo, after all the bad experiences I've read about. I survived liver cancer, thanks to Mayo.
My worse symptom is overwhelming fatigue. I've also had some depression lately, due partly to cold weather and partly to a bad fall I had outside a little over a week ago, in which I really hurt myself. I will be 66 next month. My cardiologist put me on a walking program, which I haven't been able to do lately because of cold weather and then the fall.
I don't see my hepatologist until April 2nd, but at that time I will mention low-dose Naltrexone to her.
Again, welcome to the forum.
LuckyDog, I did do research when LDN was mentioned by someone here previously. I printed out a pile of stuff to take to my doctor, although being at Mayo she is probably very aware of this treatment.
Thanks, though, and if I think of anything I want to ask I'll message you.
