From this study (3 days ago):
Doctor seems to think I have epididymitis due to a swollen testicle and constant pain in testicle. He gave me doxycycline for 23 days. I'm only half way through but was in a lot of pain so started to take naproxen which seemed to work instantly. However since I've been taking the naproxen (orally) I have been experiencing about half a tea spoon of blood on my toilet paper, and a stinging while I'm going for a poo.
From this study (4 days ago):
I have taken omeprazole for a few years for acid reflux that's occurs daily at all tines during the day. After using short term ppi like tuna I eventually moved to one a days. I use generic brand omeprazole. I stopped taking it after reading side effects my reflux is still there but not as severe as before but what may be coincidence I started having blood in my stool. Bright red both in the stool and on toilet paper sometimes I only release blood instead of stool. I have stomach cramps now. This problem has lasted for a couple weeks now getting worse as far as cramps. It does not appear to be a lot of blood which is hard to notice because any small amount turns the water red. If I were to guess the amount I would say about ten drops sometimes worse and sometimes none at all.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
The autoimmune hepatitis is de novo. Approx. 2 yrs after transplant, ALT and AST went from 40 or 50 to 400 and 500 in 1 mo. Drs. tested (Ultrasound/liver biopsy/arteriogram) thinking it was hepatic veno-occlusion or vasculitis. 2 yrs after tx, my liver is almost entirely cirrhotic. Experienced massive body swelling (ESLD-Chronic Hep B)with seepage thru ankles and broken blood vessels around upper ankles. Diagnosed w/ GVHD and Autoimmune Hepatitis. Drs. had decided to re-transplant but called it off. Nausea is severe and debilitating. Abdomen very distended.
