I am happy to hear that you are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. You have had a very hard time and still have been so supportive to everyone else. My update is as you probably know I was diagnosed with AIH over a year ago. I am doing fine my liver levels have been normal now for over 4 months and I am still on the 20mg of prednisone. I will be having another liver biopsy the first week of December and if the inflammmation is gone they will begin to slowly wean me off the prednisone. Hopefully, it will be successful and I can get off this awful medicine. for anyone who is interested during the liver biopsy I was given Benzodiazepine and felt no pain or remember nothing it only lasts a few minutes and no drug hangover and you are awake. My doctor also instructed the hospital to give me this drug during this biopsy. It is also given by another name called Midazolam but believe me it is great no pain or discomfort at all.
Shel and Butterfly, thank you for your kind words. I have to laugh when people say I'm strong. I don't feel that way...I just do what I need to do. I'm a tough ole broad, and a stubborn one, too. I do have a lot of faith in God. I have lived several lifetimes...all the stuff I've been through in my life. I always come through okay. God has brought me too far to drop me now. I still have work to do in this life. ;)
Bless you all,
Connie, I was reading where you said Dr's. told you, you had Mono or Hep.! My ? is what role does "Mono" play and is that a sign as My 17yr.old daughter was sick last week with Mono and severe kidney infection! Should I be concerned with her having Hep also? The whole family has been checked and vaccinated But, what is the chance I have 2 children with this disease? Oh, please tell me I am now overreacting!!!!
