Julie, I agree with David on this. You don't want to suddenly go into a downward spiral and not be able to get a liver because you were taken off the list. Believe me, when people are facing death, they will usually do anything to stay alive! I would also double-check on the AA requirement. You wouldn't want to be denied a liver on a technicality. although 14 mos. is a good amount of time. Suppose they want proof?
The Norvasc should bring your BP down. I was on it for quite awhile, but when I started having rapid heart rate, was changed to a beta blocker. Your high BP could be the cause of your headaches. If you don't get it down, you could have a stroke.

Do you mean Lactulose? I didn't find a drug with your spelling. Lactulose or its equivalent will clear up your confusion. Try to make sure of the spellings and dosages of the drugs you take. This could save your life in an emergency.
As for the cancer marker, I'm not sure. They use AFP (alpha-fetoprotein) as my cancer marker, although it wasn't really high even when I did have cancer.
