I was diagnosed with PBC in August last year and had gall bladder out in December.
I have felt fine for the last 3 mths but have to say have been disappointed this last 2 weeks with having symptoms I thought were linked to gall bladder problems and long gone.
I asked my consultant if i was absorbing vitamins and he said yes your skin tells me that, i insisted on a check anyway. I have since found Im calcium and vit d deficient and now take calcichew twice a day. I have been under a dietician for 6 mths as my weight is too low as im 6 stone 12 and aged 39 / 5 ft tall. I now take Ensure drinks every day under prescription.
I take iron tablets for chronic anemia but have been worried that i may have pernicious anemia as i am sometimes short of breath and my heart rate keeps varying in pace and rhythym. I need to take this up with GP as she doesnt know about these symptoms.
The tiredness has been a killer this last few days it has felt like a spell has been cast on me and the need to sleep has been so desperate i have had to park car in carpark and just nap. When i sleep my breathing deepens and it feels like my body is trying to repair itself.
I hope these symptoms are just sayng Hi and having a passing visit because thought of feeling like this every day is very worrying.
Oh yes as I am on Calcichew i have requested a dexa scan as im at risk of osteoporosis.
Take urso twice a day, LFT normal, liver scan normal, liver biopsy normal, AMA was about 1:320 on last check and rising.
Thats all folks
