I have still battle with getting this done and over with or waiting. And to top it off my dr wants to take me off xanax or go to a psych dr. I am going to the head doctor. I've already made an appt. This will be better for me I think, when it comes to dealing with the emotions behind this. I know it sounded like I had gone completely over the edge but th...

I have called my doctor and left a message about the Sofosbuvir. I won't know anything until then. I'm sure he'll check it out. I trust him. I also told them that I would like to wait until this drug is available. So it's a just hurry up and wait situation at the moment. I really don't want to take the shots. I hurt every day of my li...

I have just read up on the Sofosbuvir. I am definitely going to call my physician. If the side effects are aren't so severe for this new drug, and it appears to cure with a higher rate than the interferon then I would definitely be will to wait on it. I don't want to be sick. (I did want to be a size 4 or 5 again tho). I am so glad you guys have res...

I will call my doctor's office tomorrow and ask about the new medication. And see if I should wait or not. I just want this to be done with. This is the only thing that makes me leery. (Sofosbuvir is an investigational product and its safety and efficacy have not yet been established.)

I have absolutely no way of knowing how or when. I have been sexually assaulted a couple of times. The reason I know there is no biopsy is that he said we would start on the meds in sept. And for me to have a good summer. As far as the joint pains go, I already hurt everyday of my life so maybe that part is to my advantage. As far as holding off on the meds,...

I just found out I have genotype 2 and will be taking the interferon and ribavarin when I start treatments in September. I'm about to lose my mind over the fear of side effects. The one I am most scared about is the mental part of it. I already take 4 mg xanax, 50 mg elavil, 60 mg celexa, and 50 mg of lamictal. This is freaking me out. I'm 50 year...

I found out that I had Hep C after deciding to give blood for Lent. I received a letter informing me of this disease. I wanted to curl up and die. And after reading some items on it, I just cried. I can't cry now. Too numb. I am assuming that I am "lucky" to have Genotype 2. Liver enzymes are normal and an ultrasound showed everything to look...

I have been diagnosed with several things (fibro, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, DDD, peripheral neuropathy in both legs and hands, and a "pinched nerve" at C6-C7. I had a spinal fusion done in 11/08 at L5-S1. I am having the same type of pain again in my back. I just had another MRI yesterday on back and neck. Neck has gotten significantly worse. ...

I have been dealing with all these medical issues for the past 1 1/2 yrs. I have found out the following: Most of the time you have to push or investigate any pain you may have. I searched for docs I thought could help. Fortunately, I found some really great doctors. Pain Management docs are a whole different breed. In my opinion, they treat you like an...
