New pbc member
I'm male 38 yr old recently dx pbc.. I live in Kentucky ,USA right now . I was very stressed and depressed when I heard that I have a pbc from my dr. even tho he said not worry .. I'm in 500mg urso twice a day. In the beginning of medicine it did make me very itchy and fatigue but slowly they are winding down .. I have no diet restriction except alcohol .. I do smoke socially rt now like 10 cigarets a week but I'm Going cold turkey soon .. I love drinking bourbon but I haven't drink scince I was dx 4 months ago.. To kill my alcohol craving I drink 2 or 3 light beer in a weekend only .. I have reflux , Lacoste intolerance , and may be irritable bowl too.. Anyway , I have decided to have another opinion about my dx so I'm going to the one of the best liver specialist from uni of Louisville on May 18th..
I do have a reaccuring uti it may be due to pbc that I have to talk with my dr..
This site is awesome I'm already feeling nice by reading ally the positive things about pbc ..
