I am now 3 weeks post-incivek and wow what a difference. Although I am still anemic (waiting for procrit to kick in), I feel so much more like my old self. The itching is all but gone and all anal issues are gone. I love being able to sleep more than 8 hours straight and not force-feeding myself. I have experienced a more pronounced metallic taste in my mouth. This definitely makes drinking and eating more difficult and I have lost a little over 5 pounds. Personally I am delighted in the weight loss, but I know I still have to drink. I have started taking an anti-anxiety pill at bedtime and this helps me sleep. I think if I could just get the hgb level up, I would feel like I could run a marathon. Other than this, I am so very happy to report that life has gotten better!!!!
For those of you still duking it out with the incivek-demon, hang in there. I swear the closer you are to the end the harder it is. But keep your eye on the prize. You can do it!!
