My wife has PBC. The URSO made her feel sick and was vomiting soon after taking it. Now she won't take it again. I heard about the Australia "Liver Doctor" (Dr. Sandra Carbot), and ordered her concoctions some time back, but its just recently my wife has started taking her"Livatone" product. Has anyone experience of these products?
My angle wife has suffered a lot from bloating, flatulence and more recently bad stomach pains going right across her stomach. They don't seem to stop. Anyone know what can be causing this to happen? Is it because of the PBC?
She saw a "Liver Specialist" about 1 month ago after having quite a lot of blood tests. He diagnosed PBC and prescribed the URSO with a view to reviewing the URSO effectiveness after 3 months. He said my wife had early stage PBC, although he did not arrange for a biopsy.
Can one competently diagnose early stage PBC without an actual biopsy?
I can't bear to see my wife suffer, each pain she gets is like a knife through my heart. I've offered her half of my liver if I've the same blood group as hers, and if a transplant ever becomes necessary. But, I'm 62 years old and she's 63 years old, and I am afraid that if it ever comes to a transplant situation the surgeons may refuse my liver because of my age?
Anyone with any knowledge of this or suggestions is much appreciated.
