About Me: Male, 60, Flagstaff, AZ, member since Apr 2008
Just married in 2006 to my lovely wife Jennifer. Have a very handsome 7 month baby boy named Ian Quinn and I live in Az. I was diagnosed with hep-c in 1999 with a viral load of 800,000. by 2005 it was at 21 million. I started the pegitron (19 out of 48) shots and it was
[More] undetectable, but I lost the sight in my right eye for awhile so then doctors would not let me finish the program because of side effects like total blindness. From 2006 til present my viral load has gone up to 50 million. My bloodwork in Jan 08 said stage one liver damage, and my biopsy this month said it is already at stage two. I have a lot of problems with fatigue and joint pain and lots of headaches. I have an appointment with Mayo clinic in May in hopes of new medicine with less traumatic side effects. Has anyone had any symptoms like these and is anyone on any other type of medications that might be helpful? I take vitamins without iron and milk thistle.
