Congratulations! So happy for you! All the pain and misery paid off :)
Hey Star, I have done my last injection and have another 5 days of pills there. Thanks for your support during tx
Hi Star, how is everything going. I hope your energy is back. Oct is not far now, big month for both of us :)
Relax, it will all be fine, fingers crossed. I am ok, light work out started and I thought I will die after 3 min on a cross trainer at level1, lol. I have done 2 days already this week so we will see how next week goes and if I can increase the levels or not. I am part of a master thesis group so they take our BP and heart rate a few times during the one hour session. They have even done a DEXA scan for me and looks like I need some calcium supplements as I border Osteopenia. All good, just this chest cold, I hope is nothing else worst as is a dry cough all the time for 2 weeks now :(
I am doing ok, less than 7 weeks to go. Happy to hear that things ar going well for you. October is not far, fingers crossed for both of us. We need to get back to a normal life. I wil be starting to work out some light exercise next week, we will see how that will go
Just a quick note to say hi! I hope all your energy is back by now
Just a quick note to say hi! Hope your still feeling better everyday.

Congratulations! Time for a celebration...Hope everything is going well with you!
Star go to ActingBN note section and read about the vitamin for joints. Let me know if your interested, I'll get you some. Kitty
Sorry your still having some joint pain....Yes, I am too :( Im hoping it eventually goes away...I got my appetite back though, things are tasting good again. We deserve more than a medal for this...what a ride it was! Congrats on the EOT UND...we will be SVR in no time!
Yaaaay on your Und result! Did they have to check each cell in your body one by one (why it took so long)? I hereby award you two medals: one for finishing treatment and one for undetectable at EOT. Got your note and you have been a huge help to me too, so thank you. All that talk about RC treats and sweets made me smile when I really didn't feel like there was much to smile about.
Congrats at UND at EOT. I hope you will feel a lot better in the next few weeks

Hey Star !
I still get a bit itchy now and again. After incivek, I was taking 800mg riba which doc asked me to reduced to 600mg because hemoglobine is 7, too low. I was in a depressive mood and he gave me anti-depressive meds. I feel much better. I feel general tiredness from tx. The sun has been hiding since November and I really miss it. I'll have to wait ntil week25 to know if I attainded SVR. As we started aroung the same time, you also should know your results at that time.KEEP FINGERS CROSSED FOR BOTH OF US. Am doing 48 weeks, still have a long way to go. Have a lovelyy day :) Lisa
Hi Star ! How are you doing ? I was thinking of you, that you have also finished the telaprevir. It's sooooo good not to have these pills to take anymore !!! Do you still feel the rash and itchy? I read somewhere that it takes about 4 weeks to feel less sidefects from telaprevir. I'll have the result of the blood tests next monday. I'll know if the virus is gone or is still around.. Crossing fingers, I hope that the result is good, after so much suffering with side effects. My potassium is still low and hemoglobine also. Keep it up, you are already UND, it's worth it. Take care and give news.
Congratulations for getting this far without the horrible side efects that many of us feel. I still have to do 2,5 weeks incivo. On week 8 I was not und. The count was still 15. Let's see !!!
I was in hospital because my hgb was very low. I received 2 bags of blood and feel much better now. I also started taking pills for depression and it is doing me very good. I'm hungry, I feel like doing things and am less nervous.
wish you the best !!!!!
Hi Star, in one of your post you said that you had done yoga and a bit of dishwashing. That was very encouraging !! I also tried to do a few things at home (thanks to you !!) and it was OK. I think that I'm getting a bit of energy back. Although when I do more effort, my heart is still beating very fast. I have to sit to recuperate. Week 4 blood test show a VL of 49, (had VL 5.500.000). On 14th am doing blood test for week 8. Crossing fingers !!
Just sent another reply to your post on DET < 43. In your journal you said shot #1 was Nov. 15. Please check my second reply to your thread. Doesn't that make yesterday's shot #4, not #5?
