Brother lab updates recently. I am curious how stent is doing.

I know his viral load has been great and for obvious reasons I love hearing stent news. Last I heard bili was 4.

I hit 1.2 last week, in 2 months it wil be a year since I woke up yellow.

That's so good to hear Syxx! You lost your glow :)

He did have the stent removed 2 weeks or so ago. I still can't get him to remember to ask the local lab for a copy of his bloodwork so I rely on the news he receives from his TC. He's still a little yellow but much better than before

I think I will call TC myself. I do know that he feels so much better since he started Procrit. I can't believe how expensive that is!

Gosh, Syxx, you're nearly normal! My bili on 08/05 was 1.1...has been for many months. This is why my TC doesn't see that cholestyramine or ursodiol is warranted for my itching. Is turning me over to Dermatology.

Anyway, congrats!

Hugs,

Yeah, i sent an email to my Hep asking him about ursodiol. They mentioned possibly putting it on me because it has shown an anti-inflammatroy effect on the liver and with the blockage it could help me recover faster. I was so jaundice for so long it has taken months to clear up.

Thats why I am glad that Maes brother is doing better quickly, becuase he was jaudnice as long but his bili went high so fast.

I think for 3 months my bili was around 15 and then from christmas until Jan. 1st it sky rocketed to over 30.

Funny thing is, I never itched until my jaundice got into the 30s. I never lost my appetite, nothing. I was super tired for those 2 weeks but I still worked 5 days a week 10 hours a day.

Weird how people react differently.

Amazing that you were able to work. I never was jaundiced. My bili only went as high as 1.7. I've just never decompensated, but the itching is severe.

I made contact with the neurosurgeon's office today. They will call me back with an appt. re: my back.

Hi Lorib and welcome,
This is a very old discussion. Do you have a liver related problem or question?’ You can start a new thread
