My liver biopsy showed several anomolies including rare plasma cells. I was told to see a Hepatologist due to the fact that I have some form of a rare autoimmune liver disease. I suppose having APS makes this occur. I am going start the process of getting an appointment with some specialists I have located. I live in Tennesse but will be traveling out of state for this. I have researched several of the possibilites I was given and the survival time frame is anywhere from 2 to 10 years without transplant. I knew that with having APS for so long and being close to death twice that eventually this time would come round again but finding that this timing is horrible. I am supposed to finish my graduate degree this summer and I am determined not to let this get in the way. I stay very ill all the time now, contant pain also making me fall far behind on my graduate work. I am remaining positive. As I have said in the past.. I will never let this disease win, never. We can and will overcome. I am truly thankful for this site and the inspiration we can all draw from one another!
