Fiance had HCV, cirrhosis, ESLD, ascites, and portal hypertension. Was transplanted June 2004. Now, on interferon and ribavirin. Hepatitis C is back.
Makes sense that it could be from the meds. I never noticed that in the literature. Though, I've read so much on his meds I can't remember it all.
He can't stand to have shoes or socks on, either, and it's been over a year.
I really don't notice any issues with his fingers. It's just keeping his feet uncovered at night. He has horrible pain in his ankles, too. But, there were some nerve issues from the edema prior to transplant.
And, now, we're finding out that he's got arthritis in his spine. So, there is always the possiblity that that's what causes the ankle pain.
How are you doing today?
