My hubby saw his hepa last Thursday.  CT scan results were clear, no sign of liver cancer.  Lab results were good, liver is still compensated. Will have an endoscopy this month (routine screening).  Next appt for labs, ultrasound, and follow up with hepa is May.  She believes sofosbuvir will be submitted for approval about April, 2013, and be available for commercial use about the end of 2013.  She believes that sofosbuvir treatment for difficult to treat G1a’s will be sofosbuvir combined with Interferon and Ribavirin. Hope all is well with you.

Hi Allison, How is Gary?  He must have completed Incivek 3-4 weeks ago.  Have his side effects improved, and how is his liver holding up?  Keep in touch.

Hi, He's fine now that he's been off treatment for about 3+ months.  He's back to normal, working, doing family things together, helping around the house, running errands, going for walks with our daughter, etc.  Thanks for asking.  Let me know what the cancer doc says about the wound.  My guess it's his circulation in that leg, not getting enough blood supply to heal the wound.

Hi Allison, Haven't heard from you in awhile.  So, Gary has a leg wound that won't heal and it's being biopsied?  Is the non-healing due to the diabetes?  He should be getting close to finishing Incivek now, right?

That's what I thought.  Gary's case has special circumstances.  Be careful with the wound. The condition of Gary's blood will make it hard to fight infection.  Keep positive and search for right answers.
Good luck with Doctors.  rog

Hi Allison, Glad to hear Gary is still treating. Just get through the incivek.  vl undet. is good.  Question though?  Why did you have vl at 8 weeks?  It is not standard protocol.  I know some Drs order it but mine didn't and I was bummed so I ordered my own at 9 weeks.

Wow, that's awesome.  I am so glad he's able to continue treatment.  I recommend that you call the insurance company and the pharmacy every day until you receive the medication.  Congratulations to you and Gary.

Hi Allison, I took a look at Gary's trackers last night.  Wow, his counts are all over the place!  Good thing he has you there to take care of him and keep watch on his counts.  That's a big job.  Wishing the best for you and Gary.

Amazing story on Gary.  28million to 10 thousand in 2 days. That is exciting!  It will be really cool if he can undet at 4 weeks.
Keep trudging forward and setting new reachable goals and remember, one day at a time.

love and hugs, rog

Allison, have the doctors ever considered Boceprevir?  I know about the interaction between Telaprevir and Tacrolimus. That's why maybe it's safer to look into Boceprevir? I'm not a doctor and I'm sure there must be a good explanation to my question but I simply don't know it. How did the Monday test go? Any hope for Saturday start? I hope Gary is feeling optimistic and so are you.:) I'm glad you have the best care. It's very,very comforting.:) Keeping you two in my thoughts.:)
-April.

Hi Allison. Today is the day.:) I've been thinking about you two. I hope you were able to start the therapy but if not, I'm sure it will happen soon. It's not going to be easy. This is a tough battle but you know all of that. Keep your optimism high. We will support you from the distance as much as we can. Please send my best wishes to Garry. Big hug to you, Allison.:)-April.

Hi Allison, So glad to hear that Gary will be able to start therapy this Friday, and I hope it goes well.  One of the things that my husband found very helpful is a cleansing lotion called Balneol.  We found at at Rite Aid Pharmacy, and he used it to help cleanse and soothe the inflamed tissues around the anus.  When the Incivek is eliminated from the body, it causes quite a bit of anal rectal pain and burning.  My husband even had bleeding, we assume from inflamed tissues just inside the rectum.
Keep me posted on how it goes.
No my husband has never had a transplant.  His liver is still compensated, so at this point we are hoping that it will remain compensated long enough for him to try the next available treatment.
