Week 10 of triple tx. Thanks to neupogen my wbc are back in normal range and hemoglobin in hanging between 9.2 and 9.4, I feel better than I have since I started treatment I think in large part to the neupogen and also starting an immodium regime. Diarrhea or should I say "fiarrhea" for 8+ weeks was the worst. I have a metallic taste in mouth and even water is hard to drink. But I've been flavoring it with lemon and lime. I know how critical it is to stay hydrated so I still shoot for nothing less than 64 ounces per day. My sense of smell is on overload and every little smell can send me into a fit of dry heaves. Even with all this I feel pretty good. Knowing that I am in the final stretch also makes things easier. I am looking forward with great anticipation to my last dose of incivek. If anyone reads this journal, I hope it gives you hope. We can do this!!!
