  • Sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. Can you tell me more about the joint pain you're experiencing? What are they going in for with the surgery coming up?

    Thinking about and keeping you in the many prayers I say for us all.

  • Steve, I hope everything goes well for you Tuesday. Try to relax as best you know how considering all that's going on with you. So many experiencing more than one ailment at a time. Your young!! 58 right? You still got some living to do. Pbc is something you live with... manage. Concentrate on getting better and through this heart issue. One thing at a time. My prayers are with you friend. I have terrible joint pain... I've heard about the itching. Not looking forward to that. Don't forget to get back on here and tell us all how your doing. Ok?
