So, I haven't been on here in a while and you may or may not remember, I could not tolerate urso at all. I lost my hair, I was nauseous all the time, I itched like crazy and my stomach aches woke me up at night. I have been off of it over 2 years, feeling fine I might add. I have been trying to get accepted at the University of Missouri for a new treatment (with no side effects so far) that is in its 3rd clinical trial, but have to get my enzymes into 120's minimum. I am in the 160's. My Internist pushed for them to give me Ocaliva. My insurance DENIED it because they want me to see a Gastro again. Problem is, I've seen 2 now and both want this ridiculous scam of doing a liver biopsy, which I refused, with both of them and they fired me for refusal. I told them, "It is not a cure for me and therefore I am not going to let you aggravate my liver any further." In the U.S here, it is a money making scam. My insurance would rather pay 10 to 15,000 for a biopsy than cover the medicine? I am beyond mad. I don't know what to do now... Any suggestions?
