Biopsy Terror
Sept. 27, 2004


Just a quick question and comment. I have read some of the messages and I notice a few people have said they will not have a liver biopsy. Why?

I know why I will not have another one; I almost died from it. I almost bled to death. The nurses would not listen to me when I told them that I did not feel right, my blood pressure dropped and the doctor never came to see me before they pretty much pushed me out the door to go home and die.

My husband rushed me back to the hospital where they put me in the waiting room for a few more hours (this after I had told them that I had been there earlier for a biopsy and was having some problems). Well to make a long story short, I almost died and had to have emergency surgery and was in intensive care for about a week. I also received some blood transfusions and frozen plazma.

I am researching now on what to do for myself as far as the disease goes. I do take milk thistle and some other herbs and I also drink a combination tea. I would like to try some of the items that you suggest but I need some more info.

I am 40 years old and I have a 5 year old son that I need to be here for. When I spoke with my doctor some time ago about alternative medicine and eating organic, he basically told me that I read too much and that these things are not known to be helpful. I am not the "normal" person that would accept this answer and so I have not been back to him. I would like to find a doctor that will encourage me to read and be part of my treatment but I do believe that this is probably close to impossible.

I agree with the messages that say that it's all about the money and not the people, I have some examples of this myself. When it was time for my son to get his vaccinations to start school I asked what vaccinations he needed, they said that one of them was the MMR. Well, I asked if I could get these separately and they said, no, they do not offer it separately. I called Merke and they said that they do have these vaccinations separate but they could not sell them to me. In the meantime, I also found out that my son did not need all three vaccinations anyway, that he only needed the measles by law. So, I called my son's doctor and asked him about this and he said that unfortunatey this is correct and because he does not own the practice he has no say on this and that it all comes down to economics. He encouraged me to find a doctor that could offer the measles vaccination alone and I did. This is unbelievable, the well being of my child or how much money someone can save or make! I wish more people knew what I have learned and would start asking questions and standing up and not relying on doctors for everything. I am willing to go to any lengths to inform the public, I just don't know where to start. I think someone needs to do something, but what do you do?!

Sorry I have taken up so much of your time but I could probably go on and on, don't worry, I won't. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks for listening,

Hi K:

There are a few reasons I do not recommend liver biopsy.

The first one is because of the many stories just like yours and worse and even death

1 in 3000 die of complications of liver biopsy.

The second is that it is not necessary in nearly every case. Blood tests and ultra sound offer enough info to duplicate biopsy at a fraction of the cost.

Biopsy is required for interferon prescription. That is what they want it for and most every doctor will go the extra mile to get his $10,000 for each new prescription he writes for Peg Intron
(see New York Times, June 27, 2004)

If you provide me with a blood test, etc. I am happy to help with suggestions.

In good health
