[More]th Sovaldi and Ribavirin in 7/2014! UND @ week 4 -- hoping for SVR, like everyone here! Got it done... finally.

Verdugo translates as executioner (in Spanish) but it's also a beautiful mountain range in SoCal. Hopefully I will actualize my avatar and exterminate Señor HCV. ¡Ojalá!
Thanks for the supportive words! I keep saying to myself, its just a moment in time (albeit a long moment at times - grin). Anemia corrected itself with the reduction of the ribavirin, Hgb climbed 1 point in 2 weeks and then another point a month later (so my drop is now just 2 from baseline). Still tired though....with no excuse.... Though I have been doing hot yoga and circuit training and spinning...I have not been as intense and I actually had to leave spin the other night because I was either going to faint or hurl (the latter ensued). That was a first. All and all...no complaints. I sure hope SVR is yours! Jo
