I think I got HCV back in 1977 after a gama globulin injection to boost immune system. Was tested mid 90's when my AST/ALT were slightly elevated. I got a false negative In 2007 my platelets fell to 65, I was sent to hemotologist, he dx me. Month later dx of cirrho
[More]sis. I had to treat 48 weeks SOC + polymerase inhibitor. Was UND between 6 and 7 weeks, relapsed within 6 weeks of finishing. So sick after tx, cryoglobunemia came back all over body. Very painful. I was removed from my job. Waited til 2011 to start Incivek, Pegintron, Riba. It worked, I am cured. I am grateful though it took me a long time to recover. I have been cured since Feb 2012. I am here to pay it forward. As someone once said to me, we are standing on the shoulders of giants :)
Happy Holidays to you and your family. I finally got the help I needed for pain, it's a lifelong battle although I am not winning the war, I can say that I am holding my own so it's good for now. We are having a very springlike winter so far, we are starting to get some well needed rain. My car just broke down on me just in time for my Christmas shopping so I guess I will be shopping by mail this year. It is the power steering that went out but we can't find a broken belt?? So to a mechanic I guess. Write when you feel good. Darla
Just a quick note to say hi! They don't do anything for it, and I already had degenerative disc disease so now it hurts up to the middle. I'm going to see an ortho man but I really don't want to talk back surgery, ya know? My son was mean to me this morning, he was mean to my dog too. He didn't put him hands on him but he got right in his face and shook the bed up and down for about 30 seconds. I love him because I gave birth to him but he is cruel when he is mad. What was my crime? I ran out of my pain pills early because of my back and I was laying there saying (once) "I wish I was dead" I just mean I wish I feel better of course. Anyway, now I want to move out. I was so upset, I can't tell me. I think he and his girlfriend want me gone anyway. And how was your weekend?
You deserve a big bear hug!
I wanted to say thank you for reaching out to me about my friend....he's pulled thru. Unfortunately, he's been left paralyzed from the accident. He's 30yo and was extremely active so this will be quite difficult for him. Most importantly he's still above ground.
Thank you again.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for the note. I tried to start some physical therapy on my knee (also the fall) I could walk on it and thought it was getting better but now it seems back to square one. Do not want surgery but must see specialist. Take care!! Love, Darla
