Joann, so glad it helped :) Right now we are going thru the itching torture even with all the meds because he cannot eliminate waste, therefore he cannot release toxins, they have no choice but to come back thru the skin. He takes 500 mg of neomyacin 3 times a day, I asked the dr about him drinking Danactive daily and he said that was a good idea to help prevent a yeast infection from the good gut bacteria being killed off along with the bad. Ask your dr aboutit first but I have always taken probiotics when taking antibiotics, same with my dogs.
My husbands MELD is 20 we were told, thats before factoring in the various other issues he has going on. I dont know if this hernia is going to wait for a transplant, it is now so large that it is bigger than his winkie, crude I know and I apologize, just no other way to put it.
June, the grit is made primarily to help reduce cholesterol, but they found that it is also a good vehicle to grab up the toxins and pass them thru as well. Shoot, if he were a horse( altho at times he is an ass, does that qualify??) I would just boil up some flax seed and add that to his mash hehe I have always used that to prevent sand colic and move a toxins or a sour stomach lol
