Hi LL, I just read your post on Mikkimoe's page.  Are the doc's giving you for the muscle pain?  I really hate to whine to hubby but it is killing me (not actually) to even get motivated.  I hope to have a litter of pups in about 4 weeks & THAT will help me drown in puppy breath for a while LOL.

Denise---glad to see mikimoe is still around (sort of)

Thanks LL - I'm so glad and relieved you're feeling a bit better; back to the wheatgrass eh? :-)...  I'm coming up for my 12th shot; resting lots (and lots more), small walks with the dog, small drives, painful leg (old injury).  Weight stable,  panicking about my high dose riba and no rescue meds but doing okay otherwise - can't wait for my next bloods and next visit.  Thks for asking - you're inspirational xxx.

Hi LL!  Good to hear from ya.  Glad you are feeling better :-)  I haven't been on the forum much either.  Saving all my energy for  work, school, laundry-ya know stuff like that. I am still tolerating the meds well.  Sx very much tolerate-able---new word.  My blood levels are heading south, tho.  No rescue drugs so I am getting a little worried about getting dropped from the trial.  I talk to the head trial doc Wednesday.  I am surely facing dose reductions.  We shall see-I'll hang tough as long as they will let me and fight for full doses as long as I can get them.  My thoughts and prayers continue for you and your sister and family, too.  Wish ya the best!!  Izzy

Doing OK thanks LL;  very much thinking of you.  I spoke with a SVR man 2 weeks ago - he says it's taken him nearly a year to start feeling really good after his 6 months tx; I guess everyone is different, but you've got everything going for you;  I'm glad you're taking it a little easier for a while.  Hugs and best wishes xx

Hi LL - just a quick note to say I'm still celebrating your success and thankful that you have shared your experiences - you are such a mentor for my tx.  I'm hoping each day is finding you feeling a little better.  Butterflies have to stretch their wings before they fly - you'll be on top of the world in no time.  Take care.

I'm hating it!

Maybe I'll try to call from the airport tonight - actually getting out of town for the first time to see mom and sis - have to do the wheelchair thing but oh well.

So glad your SVR - I hope to hear results from my last PCR this week

Take care,

Invitation accepted....next hurricaine season, (post tx)-I'm coming to your house!!! And bringing my chicken!  I am doing well-the sx have been kind--with the exception of the low wbc which kinda worries me.  I just need to maintain for 7 more weeks until I can get rescue drugs. Sleeping like a baby at night-probably just jinxed myself!!  I am following your threads in the forum and wishing you all the best.  You are all heart, girl!!! A very good friend to so many :-)  ....19 bottles of peg on the wall, 19 bottles of peg.  Take one down, pass it around.  18 bottles of peg on the wall................LOL!!! Love ya-Izzy

I was talking to my husband and he said, maybe if you have family or a friend who owns a small business and has ins.,possibly you could get slipped into their plan.Other wise it's going to cost 11-1200.00 a month.That's crazy.Husband talked to the big kahuna at ins. company for me yesterday and she said, she was personally going to take it to her CEO at the top.She did agree that two of the best Drs.suggested I treat and it would be hard to say No.I'll let you know if you keep me in mind when you find out sumpin.Have a good day.Tammy

Hey LL - Just to let you know I went to a support group this afternoon - A man there has been clear 12 months - says he is only just starting to feel really good now;   Hope you get your CBC's, but also, please don't freak out too much, it apparently does take a long time for your bloods to sort - diet and supplements may help, but the CBC will give you peace of mind - good luck - thinking of you....

Thanks for the note. The % increase in SVR for transplant patients is really just a guess. It is not even all that clear how much slow responders will benefit from the additional length. What is clear is that there is a definite relationship, and that slow responders will almost certainly benefit (in SVR rate) from extended TX. Further studies will have to be done to quantify and narrow down these numbers. By my rustic calculations, I could receive about a 10-15% boost in odds of SVR by extending, but that is just a guess and certainly does not take into account the immune system effects of a TP patient. I am not going to worry about this anymore until I get the 72 weeks nearly done. One step at a time. - Brent
