yes I was on Plaquenil, that was the one she was willing to try but I had an allergic reaction to it.
And yeah that's what she said, that my immune system is what's holding the hepatitis in check...hence she doesn't want to risk suppressing the immune system. I do have liver tests done every month, I always know when the hep goes active...it's a distinct problem. I was first diagnosed with hep c in 1995, the year my son was born. It has wreaked havoc only 4 times since then, now in remission and praying the stuff stays that way forever. Sigh, feels like being stuck between a rock and a hard place and yes I have an appt for a 2nd opinion and my Rhuemy has been asking help of her fellow physicians since making a wrong move could cost me my life.
