hello,my name is virginia and I'm new to this site.I have cirrhosis and hep-C.I was diagnosed in2007 after going to the emergency.My boyfriend found me passed out in a pool of blood and not breathing(at the time,we were not boy friend and girlfriend)he saved my life.I woke up in the hospital from an induced coma and I weighed 60 pounds.I had a pressure ulcer on my tail bone that opened up and was necrotic.I was close to death.I was in the hospital from may5th to september.I also could not walk so I had to have reabilitation for that and also,my pressure ulcer had started bleeding and wouldn't stop so they had to stop the bleeding and give me two pints of blood.They drained nine two liter bottles of liquid out of me as well because I kept bloating.I got a second chance at life.

  • aw virginia welcome to the site. you have certainly been through the mill dear. iv had hep b 44 years ago and hep c i dont know how many years i had that at least 20 or more as there was no way i could have gotten in after then. i cleared it with ribavarin and interferon, i also had cryoglobulinemia which was a terrible illness which seems to have cleared up since i cleared the hep c. i also had quite a few other secondary illness's when i had hep c but since clearing it the other illness's have gone also so im very grateful for that. however i have mirizzis syndrome now, and have just gone through a 5 hour operation called a hepaticojejunostomy in now into my 4th week of recovery. im not sure what to expect next as i cant find anyone with this syndrom as its quite rare. and its to do with the gallbadder and gallstones which really are liver stones and i have chronic liver disease and grossly fibrotic liver but no chirossis. so thats a bit about me. i think you look really good and well in your picture.and what a romatinc start to a lovely relation ship, he really is your knight in shining armour. hope to hear more from you later. love grace xoxoxo

  • You have been through an awful lot, but you seem to be seeing light at the end of the tunnel, so glad you have a loving caring partner, hope all goes well for you, you must stay positive.

    How are you feeling now? Has your stomach gone down? Is it due to alcohol?

    I feel so sorry for those with liver problems when they don't even drink, it seems so unfair.

    You will get lots of help on here, they are all a caring lot, very knowledgeable, any not biased at all.

    I follow quite a few forums, this one I follow because I have had a problem with alcohol for 20years plus, it is a Demon that has ruined my life and those around me.

    Keep us informed of how you are doing, good luck, take it easy and keep your chin up 💛
