I made it ----12 weeks

Last night I finished my last dose of Incivek and I feel like I want to go to Disney World....I am so happy to have completed the 12 weeks, and to be UND (at 4 weeks). I kept on saying to myself "just get to 12 weeks, don't worry about the rest"....and it worked. The sx for me were difficult, mostly nausea and extreme fatigue. Luckily I didn't get the other sx from it. I am hoping to get back to work next week and return to a somewhat normal life. The past few months felt like the movie Groundhog Day; with each day repeating itself. Well the movie is over and I am back. So 36 weeks more and I am finished; for the second time that is.....and last.

So if you are about to start triple treatment you too can get through it. Thanks for all the support and encouragement folks.

I can so relate to the Groundhog Day thing!!!  It just goes on and on and on and on and on.... but you've made it over that first hurdle!  Hope the next 36 weeks are kinder to you and that this indeed your last time to have to do this!!

Way to go!!
