My GE has prescribed 4 weeks of regular peg/RIBA treatment for for weeks before adding boceprovir. He had a different patient on the victrelis and her side effects(mouth sores, trouble swallowing and some anal problem) caused him to stop treatment. I did so much homework over the last 2 years. I know victrelis is prescribed alot more than boceprovir but is supposed to have less rash etc. I shall be illuminated...
Did my first shot of peg yesterday, I felt like Burning Woman with her head in a vice grip.
I made it to today and I'm still headachy but think I'll live.
This is what I'm doing...
On an empty stomach a pro biotic shot with an omenaprazole, a shot of floradix iron & herbs and a glass of water.
At 8 am I take my RIBA with a small bowl of Irish oatmeal which I put flax seed oil, coconut butter(both from the health food store. Thus the fat. I haven't had any nausea really at all. Just the freakin! Headache from he'll.
Midday a small odwalla superfood smoothy. Advil.
Yesterday I didn't eat lunch. Last night I took the second dose of RIBA with half an avocado with olive oil. Really soothing and getting that fat it. I know I'm just beginning and there is a hard road ahead but my new meditation, (now you are going to think I'm really weird, but if you've had a baby you'll relate) I imagine my liver as a baby. My baby. And I've promised it to do anything in my power to save it.
Maybe it is the mm I live in California where it's legal. Lol. I can't believe I have a sense of humor after yesterday.
One day, one hour, one minute at a time. A long blog to ask for headache help???
