Hi there, I have not been on Med Help for quite awhile. I lost my job in August, after 28 years it was a shock. thought I would say hello, how are you? How is your business going?
I know we talked about supplements/herbs in the past and I was wondering what you have tried that has helped you? I am feeling a little better since my treatment stopped last November (2008) however it was a very long recovery and there were days I thought I would never snap back. I think it was the experimental drug R1626. It worked for some people, others like me relapsed right away.
Hope you are doing ok, look forward to hearing from you.
Hola amiga! Happy Newy Year!!!! Hope you and your family are doing fine! Hugs, Marcia
Treatment Finished 12-9-09--- 6 long months,but worth it.
Thank you! Hope you are doing well these days! Hugs and besos. marcia

12 week result.......................UNDETECTABLE!!!!!! HCV RNA PCR Quant <43 , will continue next 2.5 months treatment, after that Doc said 6 months clean thereafter =CURED. Thanks for all your help and support, any questions please ask.
This is my 3 1/2 month report: Treatment is tough, but manageble. 4 week result tommorow.Will post results. Sleep is # 1 concern (Taking Ambien). Hemoglobin staying steady(around 13) WBC and RBC have been out of range most of tratment, along with hematocrit,mch, platelet count, lymphocytes,and absolute neutrophil. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone test came back normal, Liver tests have shoul gradual decreasing levels the past three months to the normal range, last test result for liver enzymes showed slightly elevated levels of ALT-78 and AST-63 , I wonder if that is from the increased amount of tylenol? Will see Doc Tuesday. Hope you are doing great.
Thank you for taking time to answer my Q. I do drink a lot of water every day, but instead of warm water in the morning, I have warm coffee. Lol.
Thank you for everything! My mom, grandmother , myself and my son are all native Californians. Perhaps our families knew each other at some point because we all are located in the Los Angeles area.
Woodland Hills is just down the road so your info is good for me to have. My doc has ordered a liver CT scan which he says will give him more info than a fibroscan.
Hope all is well with you.
Just wanted to send some hugs your way! Hope you are doing good amiga!!! Besos, Marcia
