Hello, I posted this on Hep Social and it was suggested that I put it here for help Newbies
While my story is not typical and I had some medicine contraindications after finishing Incivek, I am doing well now, just took shot 18, I was UND at 16 weeks. If I had this to do over I would do it again. Yes, it was difficult once I finished the Incivek I had some problems however what I have gained is more than I could have hoped for. This has been a huge learning experience for me.
To those who are working, my hats off to you. You deserve an award. I know that everyone has different side effects and no one can tell you what it will be like however I think many have a chance of the rash (56% with differing degrees of severity, only 1% of the people severe) and/or itching, burning from the excretion of Incivek however I was very lucky and received lots of good advice (Goof, step in anytime LOL) I would like to thank the people who have gotten me to this place. I appreciate all of your input, advice statistics, explanations, support, comfort. I could not have done this tx without all of you. You are my family except you have have been where I am and have helped me to stay the course.
