Dr James rang me yesterday to give me the Good News - I'm UND!!
What a Great way to finish Week 5
I didn't even think the results would be ready, I only had them done on Saturday. I didn't want to 'expect' anything, I feel like I jinx things that way
I was just hoping for a drop in LFT's and VL, to show things were working because it 'feels' like I'm improving. Except for this killer migraine - day 5 of this - painkillers are only working briefly.
So, my ALT and AST are within range 1st time in forever! But GGT is still high but improved. I haven't been drinking since pre-tx and no recreational drugs, painkillers only when having migraines - at week 3 and now. Processing alcohol and drugs - prescribed or not - affect the level of GGT and it takes longer to drop than the ALT/AST's because of its half-life.
Starting off Week 6
and other than migraine and severe neck and joint pain, I'm doing well. Moods have been better, although having massive meltdowns when stressed - got lost briefly on busy roads north of Brisbane yesterday aaaahhhhh....
Hair still falling out and dry - nothing I'm using is working, so it's definitely on the 'inside' (nutritional) rather than external application of anything helping.
GI problems - WTMI Alert! - this time constipation, days without going - nothing I'm consuming explains it and my usual remedies not working.
Having trouble falling asleep because of migraine and heat. It's 35 degrees C inside right now and it's only 10:30 am!
I'll update my signature later with results.
All the Best to Everyone Else on this remarkable journey
