Three Month Post Tx, Viral Load Test Results

   I was happy and relieved to find out I am 3 month post treatment: Undetected :)
My hemoglobin was up to 13.1, so I was also very happy about that. My platelets have risen from being 66 at eot, to 123, so they are 3 points higher then before I started Treatment, so I am feeling so grateful and hopeful.
   I will continue to focus on a balanced diet, and I am taking vitamin D3, and making sure to get some sun, as well. I am also taking sublingual vitamin B12. I have been craving oils, and I know peanut oil is a good source of vitamin e. I'm looking forward to seeing higher platelets at my 6 month, and ecstatic to be rid of my anemia.
  I am feeling so many more endorphins, since I Treated. Dont ever forget second chances are possible. I couldn't have done it, at least not right, without you people, here on the Forum. There was always someone here, to answer my question, or to remind me to drink water, stay out of the sun, etc. I also never missed a dose, of any of my meds.
   My digestion seems to be working,the way it used to, when I was a kid, and I am regaining energy, but still trying not to over-do it. I am also so glad to have gotten rid of these dark circles I had, for almost a whole year.
  Wishing everyone a peaceful Thanksgiving- Katy

  Some day, I may look back on my Riba/Interferon crazy posts, haha- love youse guys/gals~

  Thank all of you, so much. I have truely had a fascinating year. I now know so much more about the human body, and namely, Hep C and it's Treatments.
  It's amazing to think, that until last Ocotber, when I flunked a FibroSure test, I didn't know a single thing about any of that.
  I had no idea what a liver did, but didn't think it was that important (lol) I had many false impressions, which my mind just seemd to have made up, like for instance, that the Interferon shots were going to be giant needles, punctured deep into the stomach (mine were all painless), and that getting cured was for other people, who had time to take care of them-selves, not for me.
  What a difference a year can make~

Another "Vic" victory!; 99.7% anyway.
