- Good day everyone,
I'm new to this site. Found it through facebook.
I am 41 years old. Have a full time job and 2 boys in different sports activities.
have chrons and psc. I was diagnosed with psc 3 years ago. Diagnosed with chrons 25 years ago. The whole thing started because of my gallstones and gallbladder removal. My doctor , who was following me for chrons, suspected that there's more than a gallbladder issue here at hand. Therefore I had my first MRI. And there it was , my PSC diagnosis.
My doctor is also my mom's doctor. My mother is a 5 year post transplant patient. She had NASH cirhossis. I'm assuming, since she also had her gallbladder removed at 20, she had PSC that went undetected for years.
Since my diagnosis, I have become a healthy eating advocate. Changed my family's way of eating and encourage exercise and sports activities. I am blessed with an undersanding husband , cooperative children, friends with shoulders to cry on and an understading boss ( colonoscopies, MRIs, blood tests, follow up visits and some days where I am just tired) and of course PRAYER !!
I started URSO and vitamin D
3 months ago and Olestyr 2 years ago. I walk every chance I get and laugh every chance I get and some days I cry wih the fear of he unknown and the possibility of not seeing my children grow.
This is my success story.
happy to have found this site :)
