Thank you for everything!
Thanks for your answer,, I will try to find it overhere, since I am from Europe, it might not be easy to find it.
Hi Jerry, Just found your latest note after sending you a pm. I'm hanging in there. I took my 24th shot last night. Am just beginning to be able to sit up most of the day. Brought in home health caretaker to fix meals. Weight dropped to 85 lbs but I'm feeling stronger and have good appetite now. Dr. informed me I will be about 90 lbs through entire tx. Gonna be a cold winter. But my drive and determination have never faltered.
No flooding around me that I know of. I'm south of Atlanta. Hope it all missed you too. Keep in touch...looking forward to hearing about your final pcr.
Good to hear from you! Congratulations on your standing und. That's awesome. I am having a rough time of it. Been in bed with anemia for 8 weeks now. Had to quit Alinia (that hurt) because of severe nausea. Weighing in at 98 lbs. Good news is I am und at 12 weeks.
Hangin in there..Terri
Hi jerry - noted that you've got your last full shot almost here. Here's hoping hard for you, jerry .. will be watching for your post EOT PCR posts.
Hey Jer, really feeling it now dude. I have been fortunate up until now though, so won't complain much. 11 weeks to go. Saw your post and agree with CS. I think you have a good chance of SVR. Godspeed!
Hey jerry .. just want to send you a note of encouragement and hope you're hanging in there okay....rooting for you and hoping for the best.
I am curious to ask sorry for all your pain on tx just wondering did you have pain symptoms before you began tx I have a lot of pain with Hep C symptoms and am on pain medicine I hear that all symptoms you have before going on tx can really flare up and be worse on tx I have also heard tx sides are pain and of course many other issues from reading the posts I will tx this coming year, Very worried that I will not be able to work if it is true that tx makes all symptoms worse especially the pain I wish you well Orleans and I hope you have a Wonderful Christmas Can you take pain meds I take Vicodin just 5mg really does take the edge off and you can walk better etc. Makes it easier to function Hope your doctor can help you
Happy Thanksgiving Jer! Haven't heard from you in awhile. You hangin in there?
New to this but I did like Dan the plumber comment, but sorry I am a retired Purchasing Agent. A service connected disabled vietnam veteran. I have had hep c since 2000 when I did my first 51 weeks of treatment, didn't take :-( But I got my numbers below normal by running 2-3 miles, meditating 30-45minutes and eating vegetarian. That lasted till I quit, I wonder why? Now my viral count is over 14 million and I just been given the news of having 1st stage liver cancer. That's why I was looking into the ultra voilet light and oxygen, Majic Johnson did this and no longer tests positive for HIV.
Just saw your post about the rash (8/27/08). So sorry and hope it is gone by now. I know you are taking many things, Alinia and supps. I would run them all by a Dermatologist. Best of luck, neighbor. Looking forward to celabrating your UND, hopefully next week!!
Congratulations on getting #1 done. Hope the sx are kind to you. Isobella
I know you planned to start tx today. You're in my prayers. God Bless and good luck.
Dr. Gitlin is conducting the trial on Alinia. He is my doctor. Don't understand the need to do the study if you can get the drug outside of it. Anyway wanted to thank you for sharing your plan. And wanted to ask your advise on approaching Dr. for Alinia. Do you get it from your hepatologist? Is the topic sticky or tricky with Dr's?
Just a quick note to say hi! You start tox yet Jerry? What is your gameplan dude.
