It took me 13 years and a few trips to inpatient and still didn't get a dx for a long time. I finally said, I will not live like this anymore, I told the doc that I can't live like this and they had better do something and quick like to get me feeling better and for once actually FIX something, instead of bandaids, or at least diagnose. At least you got something. I've gotten shoved out of the office with absolutely nothing. This happened three times with my neck swollen as thick as my head, not being able to talk, and lymphoma risk and everything. It just bit es. Anyway, I understand wanting to forget and wishing you could take matters into your own hands. I hope you switch docs and find another, maybe a female, of course I've had lousy females too.
If you are talking liver transplants, they give them to people with hep C and with fatty liver, I haven't researched the other stuff. But with hepc, they know its going to come right back, especially on anti-rejection drugs, but they do it anyway. Same with fatty liver. Liver disease takes a long miserable time to get to that point. Mostly you are fatigued all the time and other stuff breaks and your ANA goes up and yo get other autoimmune problems and it takes forever. There's plenty of these old moonshiners with livers like shoe leather that are like 90 and still kicking it. Me, I drink, I get sick. Oh well.
Don't they just get it that if they give us the medicine we need to at least feel better we'd all just shut up and go away?!!! Think of the healthcare dollars saved.
