  • Hey there, I am Wayne and recently joined liver TX group and this one is unfortunately relevant as well. On the waiting list, HE quite bad, fatigued ,don't sleep much or eat much. Coming up on a year since diagnosis. Miss working, sick of being sick. Is wallowing in self pity a common symptom? Hoping for some interesting chats and advice. Thanks. 

  • I used to be member till my e-mail got hacked now I'm back went thru harvoni cured of hep c doing alright 1 day at a time

  • I had my liver transplant 12 1/2 years ago. 2004 mothers day

  • Well everyone, the call finally came... Or, should I say the 6th call finally came. I got my new Liver September 27, 2015! It has been a long 6 year wait, but now it is done and everything is doing really well! I got out of the hospital in 8 days, and was allowed to come home. I go back to Stanford twice a week for labs and to see the doctors from the TX team and now have been switched back to my old Heptologist to continue my care. I am just over a month since my transplant, so I think I'm doing pretty well! Still have some discomfort in my shoulder and back, some muscle spasms and adhesions, but on the whole, it is a whole new journey. I want to thank all of you for your encouragement and support! I couldn't have done it without you!
  • I started Harvoni and Ribivirin Monday the 1st. So far the side effects are minimal. Nothing like the poison Interferon. My transplant coordinator at the VA said the Hep-C seems to be cleared in the first month and the other two are to make sure it does not come back. I hope she is right. 12 weeks total for my treatment. Liver transplant October 1999.
    • I have 1 more day on my harvonie. 12 week treatment hep c gone from system had liver transplant 2010 good luck nausea was worst and itching
  • My doctor is recommending harvoni. BUT I failed on boceprevir 3 years ago and on sovaldi 9 months ago and I was wondering if I built up residence to protease inhibitors because of that. Had liver transplant 9 months ago and want this hep c gone.
