Just a quick note to say hi!hi there! You are 2 weeks ahead of me on S&O finish. I did decide to wait for the final test Sep 27. I still have side effects, different, but I'm no where near normal. : (
From what I understand it's the after effects & possibly ever after effects of cirrhosis? How are you doing? I haven't posted for almost a month while I sorted through the trauma of just the emotional roller coaster I've been on. My PCP is great & can deal with everything while my liver doc will just follow hep c--it's actually better this way(especially since I'm the dummy w/ vertigo due to accident self-inflicted puncture of ear drum! I'm actually scheduled for a brain MRI. I still cannot drive? So, how are you?
Just a quick note, thanks, I got it. To be honest I really am trying to figure out "where" to reply. I'll tell you a joke! I teach digital media! Theory...I am still learning hoe to use it! Thank you, dbz
Just a quick note to ask, does your comment/status mean your first test will be the 12 week test? I had a two week test and am now thinking -- no more tests until week 12? While I had a good result, just waiting was kind of crazy. I see my doc next week, and wanted to know what other S&O pts were doing. Thanks so much, dbz
