Since none of the moderators or operators of this site have ever demonstrated they have a clue about HCV or tx I wonder how they determine the "quality" of answers. Also wonder how they determine the number of people damaged by the misinformation supplied by some of our top answerers.
Hi there New York...I haven't heard from you or see you around on the regular Hep C message boards in awhile. How are you doing? I'm looking real good for being able to start on another treatment in June. I go to Dr. on Wed. and he's probably going to prescribe Sovaldi, Peg and Riba. I'll hope for the best and see how it goes... basically, that is all anybody can do, right?
I haven't talked you since my dad died. He had cancer. We didn't know why he was feeling so poorly and his doctors kept sending him from one doctor to another. He'd had prostate cancer like 20 yrs ago w/o any reoccurrance. Don't know if this cancer came from that old cancer or if it was a totally separate thing. It was so widespread in his body and it was apparent that there was not going to be any real hope of his survival. So, we didn't have him be put through a bunch of painful tests such as a liver biopsy, bone marrow aspiration, etc., etc. That was because my dad had always said that if he got his cancer back and it was spread all over him that he would not want any heroics and no chemo or radiation. So, we honored his wishes and put him in hospice where he could have comfort care. It's been hard on my mom because that were married almost exactly 61 yrs. Hope everything in your family is going well. Susan400
