Hi! I am 4 years post treatment. I think about everyone from time to time and wonder how you are doing. I still have hip pain & stiffness frequent & sporadic joint pains & feet neuropathy. Otherwise I feel pretty good & am loving life..
I hope you are doing well. I wonder about the triple therapy being a catalyst for other new symptoms I have developed.
I just believe the damage done by therapy cellular, has long term predisposition to other health issues... But I am still SVR and for that I am thankful! I hope you are doing good as well!
Happy to see that you are doing so much better
Thinking of you so happy you are feeling better, it give me a lot of hope :)
Happy to see you on here. Was thinking of you yesterday. I was very young when I lost my parents, so my loss was very different. So I envy the memories you must have. Wishing you a happy summer! Kitty
I was doing some landscaping research and ran across your avatar name. (Had no idea what it meant.) It's a beautiful family of plants! And I'm looking to find a place for one in my garden. Be well, V.
Merry Christmas! I hope your hand is feeling 100% better now.
Thank you so much for letting me know I left the URL out that I meant to post. I had a one year old running around :) I would not have known without your help, thank you:)
Was thinking of you today! You look Wonderful!
Glad to hear you're doing so much better now that you've finished treatment, and I'm glad you haven't abandoned the rest of us in this forum. Your words of wisdom and experience are so welcome. Hope all is still well with you.
Love the new picture. Your are looking like you lost 10 years.
Thank you for your words of encouragement!
Just a quick note to say hi and to ask how your doing. I'm terrible @ keeping in touch on here. My grandson was on here all weekend. Hope your well. I'm holding out for new tx. Saw Dr. from Loyola Univ. and he's ok with it. Dee
Oh my goodness, I'm sorry - I forgot to ask how YOU are doing. Please keep me posted as good as you can.
Just a quick note to say hi! I went to the Dr. on 8/27 and was put on Lactulose. Oh my goodness, it is SO nice to have my brain back! LOL as for tx., I have a DR. that makes everyone see a psychiatrist first to make sure they can handle it. With my history of depression it sounds like a good idea to me too. So, just enjoying being able to laugh, remember some things and loving the great moods and conversations, (not feeling like such a duhhh), right now. Got to take it as it comes since I know it may not last.
Thanks for being a friend, my fellow Rockfordian :)
thanks for the response ceanothus
Hi Flossie! Hope your thumbs healing!! I was reading rivals status about your hubby helping out!! Lol!! :)
Just a quick note to say hi!
Sorry I haven't written. I had to really fight to be able to reply to the responders of my last question. My concentration and thoughts are all over the place. Please hang in there with me. I'll get back to normal soon.
Thanks again, friend!
Thanks ceanothus! Next week I get my week 8 viral load check. Keeping my fingers crossed! You help me keep my eyes on the prize!
No problem...hope you're enjoying the summer...it's been nice out here in Vermont. I'm riding my bike a lot and feel great...now the countdown to treatment as soon as sofosbuvir gets approved. Best wishes, Dave
Hope your 4th of July is good today, see some fireworks, eat some good food and enjoy yourself. I'm thinking of all of you fellow MedHelpers!
I will know if it worked in 2 1/2 weeks if treatment worked.
Enjoying Life! Choosing to ignore the swelling & stiffness in my joints. Playing "Petanque" twice a week, walking our spunky 14 year old bichon every day, riding bikes with hubby, signing our beautfiul 20 yo daughter up for college (we can now get in state tuition! Yippeee, I am glad to have her go back to school after our huge move last year here). I am just Glad to be alive! Thank you :)
Just a quick note to say hi! You look GREAT! Love the new Profile Picture. Hope all is well and wanted you to know I was thinking about you!
I am so happy your hair is back! It does get better, at 16 months I am getting more and more, bless you!
your hair is back. I think you posted that you lost about 70% of your hair. This is encouraging, then. I have lost about 50% so far, but it has slowed.
Did they attribute your episode of blurry vision to anything specific?
You're correct about the importance of eyesight.
I sure wasn't trying to be casual about the problem, but I go to see doctors about two or three days every week.
I am responsible for both my 84 year old parents and my own many health concerns.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Wow!, you are regaining the years that tx stole. You look great. Keep going even if it is only baby steps.
Just a quick note to say hi! It is hepatitis c genotype1 with cirrhosis
Hello my friend, like you I have cirrhosis, my hepatologist just told me that people with cirrhosis, after getting to SVR are improving.
Just a quick note to say hi! I am during really well. Outside of my hair, I find myself back to normal. Lymph node still has minor swelling, hopefully this will go away also. I think back of tx time and know I could not have done it without the wonderful people I have come across here. I so hope that energy will return and bring you back to where you were. Wish you all the best. Today is 12 weeks post tx. my Dr does not give a blood test until 24 weeks. Half way to that big day!!
Just dropping in to say hi and hoping you have gotten some of your energy back.
