12 Weeks UND!! Life after Incivek

Got the good news this morning!  I have been off the Incivek for 4 days and feel soooooo much better!!  I'm having some weird itchiness at night, but so worth not having to eat fat all the time.  I have energy again and I feel almost human.  For those still taking Incivek, hang in there, it will get better!

Woooo! Go Greta!!! I am soooo happy for you;) see you at the finish line!

I agree...being off the Inc 4 days and I am no longer on any zofran, lidocaine cream and not taking those fats anymore is amazing. I played some light baseball yesterday sitting occasionally, but that is something the Incite would never had allowed me to do.

Ahhhh 12 VL you got that back soon! I don't think mine is ready yet I am so nervous!!!

Congrats!

Yes, while the riba says it should be taken with a meal or snack, more of it is absorbed with fat. I have my diet toast in the morning with a glass of 2% milk. and for dinner I usually have a big chunk of protein for the fat. 20 grams is definitely not necessary though (thank God) (although some of my steak portions are probably 20 grams of fat alone!:p

Thanks for the reminder Billy :)

Yay!  It get much easier from here on out, or it should anyway.  Cannot stress enough the need to keep the fat intake and water intake up.  The Riba still needs fat and you want to give the INC a vehicle to leave the building.  You're doing such a great job so far, keeping rockin' it!
