It’s been almost four months now since my second transplant and the new liver is functioning great, my numbers are better than they have ever been, but things are still hard and I’m continually wrestling with fatigue. Being tired sucks, it messes with everything, work, life, sleep and my mind. I’m sleeping better than I was a month ago, but I still wake up 3 times es a night or more, mostly with night sweats. I tweeked my back again and that makes it even worse and makes everything harder as everything literally hurts when I do it.
I have a lot to be helpful no to look forward to though. The PSC is at least for now gone, my weight is more stable and up from my low of 148 lbs, and well, I’m no longer dying. W00t! Things are going pretty damned well actually, even though I don’t really feel that way. I’m sure that a year from now this will all be a distant memory, but right now that seems a long ways away.
On a more promising note, there was another Vancomycin study that ended with more encouraging results, and that in can be found over here at the National Library of Medicine.
Also, look to the Journal of Hepatology for more information than you can shake a stick at.
