Gosh, I'm really sorry to hear that you had to stop therapy George.  I was worried about how your liver would handle treatment, but your first week or two seemed to go well, so I had high hopes.  I wonder if having no treatment options left right now will increase your MELD score and move you up on the list?  Keep me posted.  My prayers are with you.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.  George, what happened?  Why did you have to stop treatment on 3/25/12?  Was it the side effects?

Hi George,
I think today should be your third injection.  How are you feeling?  Were you able to get your doctor to prescribe something for nausea?  My husband has Zofran, and that has helped him in the past.  Also ginger tea, ginger candy (found in Asian markets), and raw ginger help nausea.  Hope week 3 goes well.

All the dragon connections has to be an omen for good outcomes. I'm only on day 8. If I'm any indication, get Hydrocortisone, or something for itching, and at least start out with baby wipes and diaper rash cream. haha WOW ! Glad you are getting started, we only get to slay this dragon by fighting it. Good luck.

Hi glair.  I hope the nausea is improving.  I'm sure you've already tried all the home remedies (raw ginger, ginger candies, ginger tea).  The Zofran prescription really takes care of it when my husband is nauseous.  Take care.

Hi glair, just checking in to wish you a happy new year. Are your ammonia levels under control now? When do you start your triple TX with Incivek?

Hi glair, my husband didn't have to drop treatment, he just had a dose reduction of ribs due to symptoms of anemia, even though his hematocrit and hemoglobin are ok.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi glair, I was just looking at your profile and your journal posts, and I see that you have been through a lot in your journey with Hep C.  You mentioned that you are on the transplant list and that you will be starting triple therapy with Incivek soon.  How decompensated is your liver at this time?  Best wishes for a successful treatment.  It's clear that you are a strong and committed man.

G'Mornin George. TY for all the notes! Accepted your friendship, so now u can message to me longer than the notes allow. You're right - lots of similarities in our stories! At this point in life we are willing to do what it takes to have more life here on God's green earth.

Just a quick note to say hi! Sounds like a great weekend! I'm glad you found someone as special as she is. Yeah, I will be driving from Tacoma to Sacramento, Ca in just a couple days to stay with my son and help him out. Starting the next chapter of my life with I have lived traveling by the seat of my pants, an adventurer, if you will. A free spirit for sure. You get some rest, I'm waiting for the furniture movers. :)

Yes, low protein is now considered counter-productive. The thought now is to avoid meat-based protein, especially red meat. You might find some good reference here regarding cirrhosis and adequate protein:
http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/185856-overview
"the vast majority of patients can tolerate a protein-rich diet (>1.2 g/kg/d) including well-cooked chicken, fish, vegetable protein, and, if needed, protein supplements...restriction is infrequently valuable in patients...one study randomized hospitalized patients with hepatic encephalopathy to receive either a normal-protein diet or a low-protein diet...there was no difference in hepatic encephalopathy outcome in the two treatment groups."(33) If you need more references, let me know. Best wishes.

Glair, I've had it since 1983.  I've treated it repeatedly, but have never gotten to viral 'undetectable'.  Someday, hopefully, I will.  Take Care.  Susan400
