Hi all..
A newbie here.
Funny thing really... I have never done drugs, never been a drinker I think I had a glass of red wine about 4 years ago and before that I can't remember. I was just diagnosed with stage 2 Primary Billiary cirrhosis, go figure! It does not run in my family and I test negative for any Hep. They said "Strongly positive AMA" AST and ALT levels high they also say "Advanced fibrosis" and "low iron saturation". Just really learning about this and I thought what better place to be then with folks that have what I have. Another funny thing is about 15 years ago I was denied life insurance after a blood test, after grinding them down they finally told me they can't insure people with Hepatitis C. So I went to the doctor and got tested, NO Hep C but I had elevated liver levels. I blew it off and now 15 years later I guess I finally have to deal with it. From some of the things I read it looks like I have a long road to travel...confused

Hi Sad Grandma
I'm doing fine.
I picked up a nasty Staph infection under my arm, right smack in the middle of my arm pit. It's healing quickly though.I have a great Primary care physician and he started my on antibiotics right away. I just thank God it was not one of those huge nightmarish things that I have seen in some pictures. How are you doing? I hope good.
Thanks..
Marc

Marco, click on your name that's in purple on the left-hand side.  That will take you to your profile.   Click on Control Panel on the upper left (it's in white on a blue background( and then you can change anything you like.

Hugs,

Connie

Hey Marc,

I hope under your arm is better. Those staph infections are not good to have.

I have good days and bad. Right now its alright.

Thats good you have a good PCP. I scare mine. He freaks everytime i go to his office. Am looking for new one that insurance will cover.

Have to keep positive attitude. I pray alot.

Take care and do what doctor told you.

SG, you might want to look for an Internal Medicine doc who is also a primary care physician.  Their knowledge base is larger than a regular family physician.

Good luck!

Hugs,

Connie

Thanks Connie, I will.

Hey Marco,

How are you doing? Is the staph infection better? Do what the doctor tells you to do.
How are you feeling other than that?

I pray you are better.
