Allison1965 Hi, anemia, nausea, aches, moodiness, lack of everything, but he is UND! So he is pleased. We just hope it stays that way. Fortunately, no shards of glass, and no rash! I don't like to say that out loud, just in case lol. He uses procrit,40000 units 1x/wk

Advocate1955 Tell him to hang in there.  He's 2/3 of the way done with Incivek, and I think he will feel better when he's finished with that.  Has he tried Zofran for the nausea?  Also raw ginger, ginger tea, and ginger candies may help.

Allison1965 Yes, he has a prescription for nausea and it helps, but more chemicals . . . yuck!! He tried ginger and it is too spicy for him.  He is ok, just a bit miserable, nothing he can't handle : )  lol   Thanks!

pooh55811 It is wonderful that he could finally start treatment. I am hoping he has a smooth ride through treatment and that he attains SVR.

Allison1965 We do too . . .so far on day 2, treatment is cruel!  He is very weak, nauseous, fever, sore, unable to get good sleep, same old sx <sigh> but we are going to keep going, take notes, eat healthy and drink lots of water (I may have a glass of wine) lol

geebee270 i here the first shot is the worst that it does get better are you guys at home or in the hospital? Did they give him something for sleep? Can he eat? Sorry about all the questions.

Allison1965 hi. we are home and he already takes meds for sleep.  Ambien is less potent with Telaprivir and trazadone is more potent with Telaprivir, so docs think they will even each other out for dose, no change on prescription there. He is eating ok so far.

Triple tx was supposed to start yesterday, but again sugars too high.  Proteins too high and he may have some ascites.  Labs on Monday, ultrasound on Tuesday of abdomen, recheck blood sugar with endo on Friday. Tenative tx start date Sat, June 23. <3 06/12 - 7

Allison1965 This is tough, I just really hope Gary can handle this treatment.   I am glad the doctors are being careful, that does make me feel good.  Of course, I micro-manage his care and so if I feel uncomfortable about anything I ask and re-ask.  : )

Allison1965 I am, when he rests, I rest. We also are in a camp ground living in our RV (which we love!!) and our spot is right next to the pool, so I relax there every chance I get. AZ is HOT right now, so the pool is WONDERFUL! I drink a glass of wine here and there

momof2jewels rog is right!  Please be careful in the sun.  I've received a burn just sitting at my bedroom window watching the birds!  Crazy but true.

So after almost 2 weeks, actually this is week 3, Gary has an appointment on the 15th at 1pm at U of A Med Transport Center to hopefully start triple tx....It is weird to wish for something so brutal to start.  : ) 06/12 - 0
