I am french and I work as an international consultant working mainly with the European Institutions (parliament, commission, council ...etc.). I have contracted hepatitis in 1976 - at that time it was not clear which type it was.I have discovered to have chronic hep C (
[More]genotype 1) two years ago, (I thought I had rheumatism because of joint aches and this is how I found out...) I have been treated with peginterferon (pegasys)(first 180 then 130) and ribavirin (copegus) 1200 ... after successful reaction I have relapsed after stopping the treatment, which lasted a year ... I found this site and am hoping for exchange
Did I miss your note? ?? Wow I just saw it today. Sorry. I guess I can't blame it on the meds!
Oh, that is a gasoline price sign.
LOL = laugh out loud.
OMG = oh my god!
WTF = What the fxxk?!
Did you see my photo from the Woodstock Rock Festival is 1969? It's under photos. I was 17 years old. Yikes!
Anyway, yes I finally started feeling better in the last week or so. Until then I was sometimes sicker than when I was on treatment! I was very ill after I stopped the meds 6 weeks ago. I thought I would feel better but I felt worse.
My blood level are very slowly coming back up. My platelets count is not about 40-50. Very slowly return to normal. My White and Red blood cells are still low too.
Your going to the hospital soon?
Let me know how you are doing.
