About Me: Female, Pacific Northwest, WA, member since Mar 2012
I was diagnosed with HCV Genotype 2 in Feb 2011, liver biopsy showed stage2 grade 2. I started treatment 02/28/2012 in Pharmesett/Gilead Fission Clinical Trial, I got "arm B" so I'm doing SOC Interferon/ Riba for 24 weeks. I was undetected by week 2!
Just took my last dose of riba tonight and my last shot was last Tuesday. I don't seem to be having any joy in that....I guess maybe I am depressed? But I'm still feeling pretty crummy with the low hgb, etc.
So pray tell! How long to start feeling better?!? Three weeks? Did you have anemia issues?
Congrats to you....and I guess to me. I can't believe I made it, but I guess I did.
Now the vigil starts......
Okay, Rainypass, I'm 3 weeks behind you in the same arm b of this trial, first injection yesterday and 4 of those ribas. So, tell me, how is it going. My first night sounds like yours, achy, insomnia, but I did do some major physical exertion the day b-4 and that could be the muscle pain. Oh, but the headache! Let me hear how u are doing, friend!!
