Update on my Eyes and things :)

Posted on April 9, 2011 at 5:15pm 0 Comments

So I've been going to an ophthalmologist, she did all these blood tests on me and TB tests.  She got one test back for cat scratch fever she said that it wasn't negative nor positive, so i could've had it in the past.  She ordered more blood tests to make sure and in the mean time, gave me the antibiotic doxycycline to take for a month!   I go back in a few days, so hopefully she will…

October and November I was in texas staying with my boyfriend, we hadn't seen each other in 8 months!  We went a lot of places, I got to go to work with him, and I got to help with all the vinyl stuff.  We went to a few museums, I met almost all of his family, and we spent Thanksgiving together :D …

Ortho Evra

Ok so I tried to get Femcon Fe, but my insurance didn't cover it. Have any of you ladies used the Ortho Evra Patch?? I've seen a lot of reviews on the net some ppl say it's great some ppl say it's horrible. I guess it depends on the person.

Saw the doctor yesterday.....

Ok so yesterday I went and had my 12th heart biopsy and I'm waiting right now for them to call me with the results because I'm supposed to meet my b/f halfway so I can go stay with him in Texas for two weeks :D I am pretty much dying to see him right now because I haven't seen him since my transplant and that was nearly 8 months ago. Anywho, the nurses told me yesterday that I can take birth control :D yay!! I'm only on prograf, and prednisone now for my transplant, which is amazing,… Continue

Thank you for responding to my questions about blue cheese. I didn't even think about pasteurization. I checked and sure enough, my husband had bought unpasteurized at Trader Joe's. So, that means no blue cheese for me tonight. Raw milk, I wouldn't eat any form of. Thanks again!

Sarah,
Hope all goes well with the results from your biopsy yesterday and this finds you packing for your 2 weeks in Texas. I've got my fingers crossed for you.... that would be the best medicine for you!

My Acute Liver Failure was the result of Hepatitis C contracted during an emergency C-section in1978!

I lived with stage 4 (end stage) liver disease for 15 years. The fall of 2010 was the beginning of a rapid decline. I received a transplant in May of 2011. As you know a transplant gives you a new life but does not cure the hepatitis C, it begins its damage of your new liver immediately. Thanks to the incredible staff of the Mayo Clinic Liver Department and new drugs Solvaldi and Olysio I have been virus free for over 5 months and hope that my 6 month blood test will be still be negative. Interferon and ribovarin would show no virus and then a month or so it would rear it's ugly head. I had no side effects from the two new drugs. These drugs are very very expensive but I was fortunate that Mayo knew where to go for help with these two drugs whose combined costs is $58,000 per month for 3 months. $174,000.
