Hello , I was diagnosed in October 17

I'm taking ursodeoxcholic acid

I'm feeling sopoorly. Since November I had about 8 weeks of labrtynitious

Then dirviticulitour in hostpital for few days antibiotics , then a water infection more antibiotics . Now chest infection after a bad cold . Is this normal to get all of these things with pbc . My liver doctor says my liver is responding very well to treatment .

But I'm worried about all this other stiff going on. I'm 60 on Saturday

I don’t think it will be the pbc, if you look at your time line of diagnosis in October, November you start with labyinthitis, then one thing follows another. It’s more likely your a little run down perhaps from the stress of diagnosis, this winter has been rather cold and wet roll on some sunny days of spring.

I do find if I get anything it takes a bit longer to get over these days not sure if that’s pbc or age, but I actually seem to get less of the winter colds.

Take plenty of rest and perhaps speak to your doctor about your concerns. Hope your feeling better soon.

Hi. I think your immune system is not strong. Are you taking vitamins. Make sure you are not deficient. In addition, watch your diet. Best to eat more veggies. You are probably stressed from diagnosis. I was. Feel better.

No my cancer was removed. YEAH.

Our poor little bodies are very compromised. Immune system all haywire. Stress will manifest into all sorts of physical/psychological ailments. Also...parasites in the body will weaken our immune systems. We, especially, need to be diligent to not ingest raw fish, eat well cleansed organic vegetables(we really don't need to deal with pesticides and Round-up),

and consider a parasite cleanse...yeah, I'm big on cleanses. Black walnut/wormwood tincture will help eliminate those little suckers. But read up on it before you do it. Dr. Hilda Clark is big on this. And of course, because we live on the planet, we are exposed to parasites everywhere.

Thank you for your help ful advise

Eat no shell fish.
