I was diagnosed after testing in Jan/Feb 2014 by a gastroenterologist/hepatologist and was started on the Urso right away. In June 2014 I opted to have the Fibroscan done in Toronto and that indicated I was in stage 3 of liver fibrosis. A year later, this July 2015 I had a repeat and it indicated I was in stage 2. The specialist told me that I am his first patient to have had the Fibroscans done. He had no answers as to why I would change stages other than “you have to remember that tests are only man’s interpretation” and to wait until I get the results from next July to get a clearer picture of what’s happening. I have a strong faith in what God can do, and your newsletters and information will be very helpful as I continue this journey in life.
I’m a Registered Nurse (shift Supervisor) in long term care and worked a 12 hour nightshift last night. I’m finding the 12 hour days to exhausting so I prefer the nights as they are less demanding for the most part. Waking up at 5:00 and then working 12 hours is getting difficult to do. I have a work accommodation for no more than 2 in a row so that is helpful as well. Other than fatigue I really have no complaints 🙂
Yes, I do have an excellent Physician (Dr Murat in Huntsville). He has gone beyond his specific area of expertise with tests and follow-up. I am extremely grateful.
