About Me: Male, 63, Vancouver, BC, member since Oct 2008
I started treatment (Pegasys and RBV) in August 2008. I was a very active person (gym 3x per week, sailing, running, tennis, etc) prior to that but lack of energy and particularly "breath" has slowed me down significantly. However, each day seems to bring extra strength
[More] and I have been accommodating the treatment reasonably well. Exceptions other than breathlessness on exertion include some vision issues and very recently, skin rash and itchiness. Viral load was 32,326 IU/mL at beginning of week one and UND by the end of week two.
The picture was taken on the Atlantic side of Islamorada in the Keys. I don't get there often enough but my mind makes several trips a day. Good luck. As you get familiar with other people who post here, keep an eye out for Andiamo - another sailor.
