Just Diagnosed...any Positive Stories Out There?Hi Everyone,
I just received a confirmed diagnosis today after my liver enzymes went to 1150 and am jaundiced. I was told about 2 years ago that this was possible, but my liver tests were normal the last time I took them in May 2011. I wish I had gone back sooner for more blood work, but I think I was in denial after hearing the initial news that this would happen. But I don't think I would have been treated anyway since I had no symptoms until now. Pain, fatigue and the jaundice. I am waiting to see a specialist and to get my biopsy. I am reading so many horror stories and I feel for you all who are going through this. I have been a mess for days crying and thinking about my young children and if I will live long enough to be with them for the major life events. I am not on meds yet, but will be next week. The prednisone stories are awful and scare me but I will deal with all that if I know I can live to be with my girls. Does anyone have any positive stories out there? Is anyone in remission and feeling good? Is anyone still working and functioning like a normal person? Thanks for any replies.
