Oh man it's been a bad year for illnes on both sides of our families, as aged members are very sick as well. But we will get through this year!
So far I am just tollerating treatment. I am experiencing all the flu symptoms, and anemia issues starting week 3, had to take Eprex and reduce Ribba. Am afraid of any more serious side effects as I want to do this once, but will deal with whatever I am dealt.
Congrats on completing your treatment.
Your profile says you are virus free, and you kept your target weight!
I'm so happy for you.
I feel better if I eat, so I've gained 7 pds but I dont care. It's great to eat whatever I want!

You must have been on triple treatment with incivek or boceprevir?
Let me know how your recovery goes for you.
I have severe pain, everywhere, especially the neck and head.
