My fiancee and I both have HCV and he is currently undergoing treatment. I will do treatment after he is completed with his. We both were diagnosed in the 90's after blood transfusions in the 70's (me) and the 80's (him). We met in a support group and have been together

Just a quick note to say hi!Hi Zrjl, I have been negative since week 4,but not without sx.I have been off work for the last 4 weeks mainly due to the nausea.The nausea is alot better now,so I am going back to work tomorrow.I am a little worried if I am going to make it through a full week of work because I still get very exhausted.All I can do is try my best,if i can`t I can`t because my health has got to come first.I have my fingers crossed for you zrjl,and I wish you all the best.How is your viral load count?I hope you are negative too.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi zrjl, I am doing as well as can be expected I guess.The nausea has subsided,but my hemoglobin went too low so they had to adjust my riba.this has not been a walk in the park.I so can`t wait till this is over so I can feel normal again.I hope you are doing well,and I will try to stay in touch.take care
Hi, I wish you all the best on your 4 week checkup.I hope you go UD.That is funny about appetite,you wish you didn`t have one and I wish I did.I could go all day without eating and I wouldn`t miss it.That`s not me,I always enjoyed eating.I hope it passes soon.
Just a quick note to say hi!
How is your treatment going?I hope your rash went away.I am starting to feel more fatigue everyday and the only time I am hungery is in the morning.The rest of the day I have to force myself to eat anything.
