Thank you for your hello note! I have just 4 more weeks left to go and the viral load has been undetectable since the fourth week in. I had to get on AD's (Remeron) because I was SO depressed and disgusted with myself, never mind how sick you feel from the meds I was feeling suicidal, homicidal and crazy as a loon!!! I have NEVER EVER been so sad, angry and just not myself until I started the triple therapy tx-just in case you are wondering I've been on Peginterferon alfa 2b, Ribavirin & Victrelis. This last four out of 28 weeks can't go fast enough!!! I am feeling emotionally better now that I am on the Remeron, but I'm still feeling pretty crappy from the meds. Can't wait to get back to normal! Thank you so much for your friendship! I really appreciate it :)
and (( Hugs )) back to you as well. Well my dad has just been diagnosed with Liver Cancer. I guess from the MRI and the bloodwork.. they havent yet done the Biopsy, he has to have a Pet Scan done on Thursday and then I guess they will schedule the MRI guided Biopsy the following week. he is 86, and I was beginning to think he had become a hypocondriac.. him being a recovering alcoholic, for past 30 + years.. but drank like crazy before then.. So lots of liver damage I am sure.. Plus when he was in the service.. younger years. he got Hep B and was in the hospital for weeks he said. but anyway.. how would that be gone ? I am sure he has had it all along and its catching up to him and causing cirro....sp ??? sorry been a long day.... but I guess I am trying to take this all in
