Also consider what support/help is out there for you should you need it. You will need close monitoring in the first couple of weeks to a month so you will need your specialist nurse/doctor to be available should you need them to ask advice; help you through the first lot of side effects and write out prescriptions for any meds to counter any side effects.
I did 6 months of triple tx and lost a lot of hair. Last Monday was the first time that I did not have clumps of hair in the shower. That would've been 20 weeks post eot. Hairdresser said last Thurs that she sees lots of short new hairs coming through at the back of my crown so that is good news! So hang in there, it will grow back. Tx affects everyone d...
thanks Pooh for the info and link. Have found it very hard to google anything specific. I have had various aches and pains while on and after tx and the latest thing is a painless growing joint on one of my fingers. Haven't heard back from the doctor yet.
You'd think that 5 months post eot that things would settle down!
The little finger of one hand has the joint closest to the fingernail growing bigger. It doesn't really hurt, though it's getting harder to keep the finger straight. Have achy/stiff fingers in both hands first thing in the morning but goes away soon after waking. I had some interferon therapy earlier this year and wonder if this has triggered someth...
Congratulations for finishing the 48 weeks.
Sorry to hear that he is feeling worse.
I finished tx nearly 5 months ago and got sx that I never got while ON tx.
I felt worse mentally after tx than during (but that may have been because I was so incapacitated while on tx.) After tx it felt like my personality had gone and I felt robbed/empty. Hard to explain....
You may be up and down for the next few months but with a trend of getting better. I felt great too when I first finished but as the drugs leave your body they can do strange things.My nurse keeps telling me to be patient.
I'm sorry your tx was so full of awful sx.
It's great that you are cured. I hope that last couple will of sx will gradually wane and disappear.
I just want to thank you for perservering with that trial.
Because of you and others, it allows people like me to only do 6months of the triple therapy rather than 11 months.
