Welcome to the HW hepatitis forum.
I am the partner of a liver transplant recipient and moderator of this forum (part time...I have been ill myself).
I can not believe all you have been through...and, yes, you are lucky to be alive. Unlike most of our TP folks, you did not have a YEARS long failure with all the side effects that come from a fail-ING liver. You just crashed.
We have had one other during my time here...where a wife of a US soldier from Korea became suddenly and terminally ill and he had to med-evac her from Korea to the states, make an inflight adjustment over the Pacific ocean to hospitalize her in Hawaii, then on to DC for her TP. She made it also! They never have reported the poison that did her in.
There is a lesson in this for others...know your mushrooms.
My partner has his TP in 2001 after a long downward slide with alcoholic liver disease, Hep C, and the last straw was liver cancer (heptocellular carcinoma). He suffered with mental changes, low platelets with easy bruising and bleeding, swollen legs and feet so he could hardly walk, GI problems, intermittlen pancreatitis, AND MUSCLE SPASMS that were horrible. He would wake in the night with a cramp you could actually SEE on his leg. And he'd cry with the pain. His hands also. But after TP he was okay again. Now 6 years later he has some again.
So maybe the muscle spasms and still related to the liver condition. Did you talk to your TP coordinator. Where was the TP? They may be the best bet...take recommendation from them about any supplements they might want to add to the med regimen...I know Mike tried a few.
Keep in touch. I wish you all the best.
We you in a hurricane area?
