It took me many months to get my hmg back to normal. During tx it went right down to 86 and stayed around there for the whole course. Hmg and everything else is back to normal now but it took much over a year for my neutrophils to get back to within normal range.
I have sicca symptoms post eot 20 months that I never had before. In my case it was triggered by the treatment. It makes perfect sense that this has happened seeing as interferon ramps up the body's immune response.

Well, not here in NZ anyway. The saliva enzymes are what protect the teeth from decaying. It's also very important to keep the mouth moist as the moisture helps...

It does come back. I lost alot of hair during and after tx. A couple of months after finishing it stopped falling out. It's grown back with a vengeance and with a slight curl, as thick as ever.
