A look inside me.

Well, what I used to be.

The images below are of my former liver, the damage of thirty years of Viral Hepatitis C (HCV).

The images are graphic, so please be warned now, they are unlike anything I have ever posted before.

These images are of me and as such I am the original owner and retain the rights to circulate the images as I see fit. If you would like to borrow the imagery, please ask.

In honor of National Donate Life month, This is why i needed a transplant liver.






This was my liver's limit.

This is what a healthy liver should ideally look like:

  2. Thank you,
    In my entire life I've had half a glass of champagne, it was to toast the first of one of my close friends getting married.

    I like to pick my moments.

    Wedding and babies? me? I've got a few things I need to do first, but I sure as heck can't wait to be a dad someday.

  3. Mr. Nash,

    You sure seem to wring a great deal of satisfaction from what I would describe as buzzard luck. I'm going to keep my eye on you.

  4. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from hepatitis b, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of hepatitis b in 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always have Joint pain , and he always complain of Weakness of the body . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to hepatitis b. I never imagined hepatitis b has a natura cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. hepatitis b has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098765@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story

  10. Hey Rick! I’ve never posted on any blog, so bear with me please... I’m 28 And was just diagnosed 2 days ago with Hep C... I’m terrified, as I have literally no support network... No one around me is truly understanding how debilitating the aches, pains, and depression is all of the time... I had no idea the reason I was so emotionally unstable had so much to do with the Hep C until I started researching... I’ve had to have had this disease for a very long time thinking back to when these symptoms first began... I’m not sure why I’m writing this, I have a few questions to ask, but I saw you had posted on someone else’s forum about Hep C and saw the encouragement and kindness you were showing them, and I figured maybe it’s time I find a support group of some sort... I have no mother or father (they’re both out using somewhere, as well as my sister) and so I’m all alone and terrified... I go for labs today... and I see a specialist coming up in the next few weeks... Are there any specific questions I should ask? Thank you for your time... Keep up the good fight! You have to be one of the strongest people to keep shedding love and positive vibes the way you do! Thanks again
