I am Mary and would like to share this info. with you all. I am 64 years old and was dianosed with PBC in June of this year 2012. I had been feeling very tired for about a
year and could not understand why I was feeling this way and starting to itch at night.
Anyway one day after coming home from work, did my usual things at home and felt
tired and started getting nausea, so started to go to bed, when suddenly I am bending
over and throwing up alot of black blood, fell across my bed fainting. With the Lord's
hands I somehow made it up and to my car and to the hospital! I was revived and lost
a litter of blood and found out this was a huge ulcer and test were run and found out
I had PBC. I have not yet had the biospy done but the blood test and the ultrasound
surely state PBC. I was put on Ursodiol in June 2012 and I did not notice any change
until around Sept. when suddenly I felt more energy and now some days are differant
than others but overall the ursodiol is helping, I take 1500 mg a day.
Any way my advise to anyone is to, make sure you try to eat the right foods for this can eliminate the pain in your upper right side of the stomach and keep a possitive attitude,
keep busy, and by all means listen to your body, don't over do your activities but at the
same time get as much exercise you can without pain. God bless you all and have a
wonderful supper bowl week end! Louisiana gal.
