You would take it Monday and then the following 6 days.
So you should take it the same day as your shot (Monday) and then for another 6 days after Monday to finish out that week (Tue., Wed., Thur., Fri., Sat., Sun.) Your last day will be the Sunday following your last shot. That would give you the full set of weeks, either 24 or 48 weeks, depending on which set you are doing.
I meant to ask you the same thing but I forgot to send you a msg. I don't know if 2b makes a difference but I think the standard protocol is 48 weeks for cirrhosis. Don't want to ruin your weekend, but I think you should ask your doc.
Please don't panic, as I'm not certain of the need for 48 weeks of treatment for 2b's w/cirrhosis. I tried to look it up but it's hard for me to wade through all the info. to find the answer right now. Hopefully some of the smarter members will get on to give you their opinion. I was just saying I would ask my doc if I were in your shoes.
My biopsy showed stage 3 fibrosis 21 months prior to my starting treatment and I was questioning my NP about it. How did they know I hadn't progressed to cirrhosis? Should I treat 48 weeks to be safe? I'm genotype 1a and if I had cirrhosis I'm pretty sure they would have made me treat for 48 weeks.
I went on one of the sites and got lost in it, but came up with one thing. I never had an RVR. I think if I'm reading correctly in those cases even being 2b they extend treatment. However Evan said just get tested again (mainly for peace of mind), I did and it was UND. So I'll just wait and all him Monday. Thanks for trying. :).
