Patient Comments: Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC)?

Comment from: akallmes, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: May 10

I've had two liver transplants due to PSC and recurrent PSC. The best advice I can offer: Questran, even when not itching, along with exercising when you can. Also, seeing a nutritionist is key. Recovery and strength related to what you were able to eat. I used to take Tylenol to help with eating, so that the pain wouldn't be intolerable.
