I am 37 and have been on pain pills since I turned 15. I started street methadone to get off of IV Diladud 4mg (K4's). I got on the clinic the day after my 18th b-day. I have been on the clinic 95% of the time since. I found out I had Hep C in 1999. I had to have gotten it in 1995 or 96. The liver biopsy very much surprised my GI specialist. He Said my liver was moderately swollen, moderately scarred. and have extremely high risk for cirrhosis and liver cancer. it has gradually gotten worse, and as it says in medical literature I am finding myself needing a much higher dose ( 240mg split dose at home into two doses of 120mg). Every two weeks at the clinic I could take it in one 240mg dose. I also take Xanax 2mg TID. I am currently on 120mg total at the clinic. I live just west of Knoxville, TN and go to a clinic in Chattanooga, TN. Does anyone know of a clinic I could drive or fly to out of Nashville Airport? I thought about making the 2h15m drive to Nashville airport and flying to NYC on the shuttle flight early in the morning to LaGuardia I think and comes back the same evening. I could do that once a month and guest dose locally the other time per month. Does anyone know of anything better to do? Please help me!
