Welcome to our site! - My Sick Liver
 
We are glad that you have found us here. This is actually the reincarnation of Gail's absolutely wonderful "MyLifeWithCirrhosis" website. Dennis first asked if he could help with some changes in the summer of 2011--boy did he get carried away!

You will find that we have taken the information from our previous site, expanded on it and repackaged it in a little bit different structure. We welcome all comments and suggestions. Remember the note on our home page on how to reach us!

My goal is to help educate people on health. Medicine is undergoing big change. It's a mess. Come to RogueNaturopath.com and learn about why many treatments are still only treating the symptom (in the medical philosophy section), thus leaving the deeper imbalance not addressed. Watch my video on Intestinal dysbiosis and see what else you can do to strengthen your body. I also teach about other factors which are not being addressed in the management of illness. Health is a process. So is understanding the philosophy of medicine which is a must if you want to be well. Health, it's your only true source of wealth.

My apologies if my post came off as spamming your site. Simply just trying to spread helpful information to others as you are yourself. Best to you.

Thank you chris. I'm trying to learn a few things for my neighbor and me. Shes got cirrhosis. I always thought tht was just a drinking of alcohol. How much and how stupid of me to think cause my poor neighbor has never been a drinker. I got sle lupus n my organ's are being attacked. My doc has failed me miserably. I'm searching for answers and didn realize tht lupus could Caz death. But I wrote down your website n try to find you on utube thank you. God blrss

I am an RN who stuck herself and was too stupid or afraid at the time to report it. I have been unbelievably frustrated by physicians and the system alike. It has been an incredible journey of self discovery and understanding, to be -so to speak- on this side of the bed. This site is great, clear, concise, informative. Bravo!

Thank you. My mother was diagnosed with Cirrhosis in July 2009. She underwent heart surgery June 24th, 2013. What was a slow progression has become a roller coaster. Most information I find is years old. Your information was very helpful as I try to learn all that I can. Again Thank you

My AST and ALT rose in 4 days from 5 & 600 to 900 and 700 (approx), my ggt and ALP are over 200...hepatitis, aids, autoimmune all came back negative.Scan did not show any issues though did say it was suboptimal due to gas. I am bloated, nauseous, itchy, fatigue, light stools and yellow urine drinking 3 litres of water a day. Have made my diet healthy. doc says just wait a month and test again. Still don't have a cause. i have hashimotos, hypothyroid and depression...I still hate not knowing. I saw a naturopath last week and got some drops and milk thistle. Any ideas?

Praise god We don't have no good doctors. I got sle lupus and today. Its like the doctor is telling me NY body is shutting down. I'm up here in kingsport Tennessee but when I read your comment I got goose bumps. I'm happy they was wrong. Which they never admit. I seen tht when my daughter spent 9;days. In step down . than took a port in her and at home antibiotics. The infectious doc still said. Gynocolist cause she had... Had a baby which he had stopped breathing for 2 mins. Thank the good lord in that too but they thought thru her ultra sound n than CT scan. Tht after birth was present! Which when they would discuss with gynocolist. They would say NO. Thts not it.... She stayed those 9 days and 3 wks later. In hospital again. But they said uti. She was so upset wen they released her she told them if she gets sick again n they don't doctor her right she will sue. I'm just happy that your in law is ok n at home and healthy. I came to website cause my neighbor has cirrhosis. And now starting to have a lot of problems. Shes Not a drinker. Just git fatty liver and itches a lot. But thank you for this website its been a huge help

Good morning everyone. This site is great. My brother has been diagnosed with end stage alcohlic cirroshis. It has been a nightmare. He is doing good and hasn't drank for 4 months after having a hospital stay for 2 weeks from having a liver biopsy and then having the the liver biopsy hole open and causing internal bleeding. It was not good. The doctors did not do anything for him as they said it was caused by alcohol and didn't really listen to what we had to say. Anyway long story short they finally did something when he was unhooked of all iv's and machines and he past out and fell. They finally saw he was not drinking when this happened. Induced coma for 4 days and drained 17 litres of bad blood of him. It was was bad with the filling up with blood it was crashing his lungs and other organs and he couldn't breath. Awful site he was. He came out of the coma and started to get better. The last 4 months he has not had to be drained or any bad happening unless he doesn't take his lactulose which keep toxins out of your bloodstream and keeps he normal per say. If he doesn't take it he becomes delusional and confused. Had a talk with him and said take it every morning and be done with it. It is used to help u. So he has been taking it and doing better.
I just want to say no one should have to go thru this nightmare. And I'm am praying and sending love to all of u. If you would like to talk vent or anything please feel free to email me. Shellydelyzer@yahoo.ca. I'm still new to all this too but always trying to find out more info.
God bless
