About Me: Male, Columbia, MD, member since Mar 2013
History of Hodgkin's Disease (1983-85). Blood transfusion 1983 gave me Hep C. Cured of HD, but now have to deal with HCV. Had two prior attempts at curing but both failed. First one was an experimental protocol which started with high dose Roferon. Viral load went
[More] undetected until dose reduction. 2nd treatment attempt was with Ribavirin and I was not responsive to it. I am a scientist. Have many diverse interests. Have a son and a wife and want to be around for them.
Hey Mark, thank you for the note. I am not very good either. All sorts of aches and pains. I am doing next week a set of CT scans and I will also have an MRI and more blood tests. I have been UND at 4.5 weeks but does not mean much. I am waiting for the 12 weeks test. What is not going well for you?
Hanging in there but super fatigued. Go in for CBC's on 8/5. My HGB must be at a new low! Started week 17 today...7 weeks to go! Good luck on your 8 week PCR and hang in there buddy. I know you are up for the fight!
