I have just completed my 5th dose of interferon (180mg) and most unfortunately I have been diagnosed with pneumonia this morning. The respiratory doctor suspected that it is due to low WBC as a result of interferon treatment and so she ordered some blood tests (LFT, WBC etc) and the result will be available within these few days.
The question is whether I should continue the interferon treatment when I am fighting the pneumonia. Your kind advice is very much appreciated. Many thanks.
I myself has also had bronchiectasis (at lingular) though the pneumonia this time is at right lobe.
I am on my 32nd week of intf. Last week I got flu but even so I made interferon injection. After that my fever went to 37.5 and stayed around this for 4 days my cough was getting worse so I took Tamiflu. After one pill of tamiflu I had terrible hives all over my body. I never had anything like this before. My doctor prescribed me one injection of Tavegyl and Zyrtec and Erius for 5 days. And only after five days my hives disappeared. I was also advised to do Interferon injection 3 days later from my scheduled date. This is just my experience.
liposomal vitamin c has been found very very effective on this i suggest you add it as soon as possible to your treatment, there is a report of a man in new zeland saved by this, he was on respiratory machine and they wanted to switch off machine because dying...
all my family tried it at the start of flu and we always got flu blocked to mild cold resolved in 1-2 days
by the way i had a family member, transplanted, with sepsis which is deadly especially on immune suppressed...we thought it was flu and give lipo c 30g and waited more than 48hrs before getting into hospital (stupid doctor did not even visit to check if it was flu or not) anyway we knew it was sepsis after few days in the hospital and we have been very lucky to give her lipo c because a life saving procedure is giving IV vitamin c at the on set of sepsis
i dont remember the death rate but every hour lost before giving antibiotics into hospital increases death rate so drammatically
in the hospital she stopped she was given a mix of about 4 antibiotics of the most potent types IV, she stopped lipo c thinking not very useful now but restarted immediately as she developped some cough which disappered same day as lipo c was restarted
i mean this liposomal vitamin c is a bomb and it is better have it home anyway
we cant say 100% liposomal vitamin c available at home saved her life but we can be sure the outcome without it could have been drammatically worst with damage to major organs being 48hrs late
just had no time to review this on livonlabs website to be helpful for others too, by the way now we are 3 families using it at first signs of flu and it always worked 100% to block it on all of us when it happens just taking 6g of lipo c
