Stomach Bleeding, Anemia, Hepatitis C, Edema, Esophogeal Reflux, Itching, Gallstones, Vertigo, Diarrhea, Cramps, Difficulty Swallowing
(Barbara, see RS #55 10-27-01, RS #57 11-10-01, RS #64 1-19-02, from Orange County, CA) – Follow-up interview. Suffered from a myriad of problems including bleeding from the stomach, anemia, hepatitis C, edema in the legs, feet, and abdomen, esophageal reflux, itching, gallstones, vertigo, diarrhea, leg, feet, and finger cramps, and difficulty swallowing. On 8/8/01, her hemoglobin (Hb) went down to 2 and she had a 16 pint blood transfusion. It went up to 8.8 but started going down again to 4 by 9/29/01. After treatments with Dr. Tong, her Hb went back up again to 8.7 on 11/10/01. Now her Hb is up to 9.5. The bleeding in her stomach has completely stopped, much to her happiness, as her doctors wanted to take out her stomach and bypass it to her liver by running a tube down her neck. Side effects of this operation include suicidal tendencies and memory loss. Her hepatitis virus has calmed down and she now has no problems swallowing. Her energy level has increased dramatically and she is not as stressed. This is after only 2 months of treatments with Dr. Tong.
