Wondering how your treatment was going. I was very interested in how it would go since you were jump starting with riba. That was a year ago. Did you do 24 or are you doing 48? I did 48 and am happy to have SVR now. Please post or pm.
Thank you for that .... I hate to admit this but it's been a year since my last biopsy. My enzime leveles were not nearly as sky high as in the past, but my viral load is moderately high, the biopsy revealed a "pre-chirrosis" and advancement of tissue destruction. That doctor is the second let down dr.for me as he seemed to quickly pass me off to his medical assistant. You are on the mark as far as me seeing a psychiatrist to help wilth the antidepressant issue--I've been relying on the g.i. who of course is not an expert in depression. My husband was recently diagnosed with advanced colon cancer needing surgery and my caregiving for who knows how long so I don't think I can address interferon right now---even if I was not depressed. Thank you again.
