Hey there, hope you are feeling better, it does take a while to recover
Just a quick note to say hi!
I was thinking you must be about done with your TX now.
I am happy to report 3 weeks post treatment I am feeling great!
Hope all is well with you.
I just saw your reply to me on a post concerning why tx is harder with cirrhosis but I know you began your own post and Hector rode in with another wonderful reply.
Hope you're well :))
Just a quick note to say hi! I didn't answer your post because I don't know the answer. I have often wondered the same thing and am glad that you asked.
I hope you are doing better today. I notice it comes in cycles for me. I go for or 4 days where I feel like I just can't take another minute, then a few days reprieve.
One day at a time, waiting for the little breaks that come.
I am thinking of you and sending lots of positive thoughts your way.:-)
I agree 100% . After a poster gets advice I just try to inject a smile here and there. I always try to answer a poster if I can but you are right gee ..a laugh once in awhile never hurts anyone.I realize maybe my sense of humor is not for everyone ,however I really am not intending to offend folks either..Guess MH or others just see it differently sometimes ..Hope you are doing well and thx. much for the note
Thank you so much for the kind note. It is very much appreciated.
I hope your tx. is moving along without too many problems and I look forward to hearing about your success down the road
Just letting you know (if you didn't already know) that I too am genotype 2.
Riba and GL7977 approaching 12th week and undetected from week 4.
I feel the sx of the riba, but of course I am sure it is not comparable to the sx of triple tx and SOC.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I uploaded my 2002 & 2012 biopsy reports to my personal page if you are interested.
I don't think I responded to your last note, so apologies either way. lol
How are you doing? How is TX and your response to it?
I am okay. I don't think the riba is too bad, not at 800 mg., but I still have ups and downs. I don't even know what is attributed to the virus, the drugs or life in general.
I was <25 at my second week. My fourth week results will be in a week from Tuesday. I hope to be undetected. We will see.
All the best to you.
I uploaded 6 photos I took this morning of NM winter in April. 3 photos of the equines & 3 views from the house. I think you'll like them! :-)
Hi, thanks for the note and checking in, hope your feeling alright. We are both doing our shots on Tuesday's interesting in a cool way and the same trial arm! What are the odds of that? I sent you a message also.
I meant to keep a journal, but was too busy staying up late talking on the site 'keeping my mind busy with like-minded souls'. AND it really really got me through. Once I got through 4 weeks, I started counting months instead of weeks (5 more to go!) I drank lots of water, especially on injection days, and found having smaller meals more often helped too (i.e. I made myself have morning/afternoon tea, even if just a snack or a smoothie). I was Geno 3 early cirrhosis, so had 50/50 chance - managed the RVR after 4 weeks which made it 80%. I'll be sending virtual hugz tomorrow and thinking of you, and being part of the trial, you should be well looked after xxx
Hiya - I wasn't diagnosed with tendonitis or fibromyalgia - just lived in excruitating pain for about 9 months - dr gave me antiflams but I opted for a naturopath. It also happened before tx so was related to the HVC then, or to my thyroid which was subclinical hyper and flared up before, during tx and after because of a toxic nodule that was there pre tx. Lots of weird stuff, but would do it again in an instant! And I'm better now that I have been for a long time .. touch wood!
Good luck in your trial! I am in the same trial I think. Fission? I was fortunate to get in the all oral arm. Thanks God , as I dont think I could have dealt with the SOC. Please let me know how you guys are doing! I am in week two and feel fine! I havent got my first blood draw results yet.
Sent you a message.
Thanks for your kind note.
We get a lot of these weird OCD types which is why I always check profiles.
Sometimes they'll post on Hep C, STDs and HIV, all the same question.
They need to get a life.
What I've learned is sometimes, it will sound like one of them, when it's just a very naive person. Gotta be careful!
I surely will and you keep in touch too. I am afraid of the Riba. Ppl keep talking about Riba rage and I really do not want to be angry and raging. I hope it won't be an issue. Some ppl feel it is only like that when combined with interferon.
All the best to you
Hi, I was in a simlar situation and got into a study trial for the new oral drugs (previously with pharmasset and now gilead) There was some concern about my cirrhosis but they pushed me through, keeping a close eye on my platelets.The study was temp stopped but will resume on March 15. I expect a cure as does the Dr. which wouldn't have been possible if I previously used the inteferon combo. If there is anyway you can get to SF (Quest Clinical in SF) for the study in March, I would go for it, otherwise see if you can find one using 7977 and riba. It is the less destructive treatment out there. Good luck
