[More]d Ribavirin on April 28, 2014 with finish on July 20th and am counting the days! Getting it done, finally.
Want to give a shout out to all those who've gone before me who have paved the way for these new, amazing drugs to become available. All those who have participated in clinical trials -- I'm so grateful!
All that said, I just learned how to play Chess. LOVE PLAYING ONLINE. PM me if interested in a match -- it's an easy win for you...at least for now :)
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
Hey V ! Hope your tx is going well :-)
I just got word from docs office that wk 2 EOT VL is undetected! So happy to hear this news even though it's still early in the game. Next is the wk 4 VL at the trial clinic... Hoping for the same news for you at your EOT! Have a great weekend and let us hear you're doing with tx.
Hi V ! Sending lots of luck and positive thoughts your way :-) hoping you can start tx soon and be on your way to SVR!
If I were a chess player like you I'd love to join you! That's an awesome game, helps keep the mind sharp and healthy :-)
