welcome, congrats on your SVR status. Can't speak to your other concern because I'm still being tx. This is the best place you will find for support.
some have found relief once they finish tx and others don't. I had them prior to tx, during and now post. I always said that even if they don't go away, as long as I get the SVR, I will learn to live with them....kind of still wish they were gone with the virus...nice title: "gone with the virus"
I just take ibuprofen.
I'm 3 yrs post-tx-svr-2b. Before tx, I couldn't open a door or hold a pen. My back was always 'out' and my ski knee was always 'going out'. If I rode in a car for an hour, I crawled out! I had no quality of life and w/no money or insurance and unable to work, I couldn't go from doctor to doctor.
B/that's all gone now. The only aches and pains now are when I don't exercise or don't rest enough.
I'm taking nothing else now or during tx except otc pain releivers and benedryl for the puritis.
I do take supplements-joint juice and liquid vitamins in my daily fruit smoothie. And avoid caffine. Caffine seems to make everything worse. I use one green tea bag in a large tea pot, so I get alittle caffine, b/not much..
My partner is a drummer and notices his hands ache if he lays off the joint juice, so it helps both of us w/different problems. We travel all over the world w/our joint juice and blender, plus teas, 85% chocolate, rice protein powder, etc.
It's strange to carry most of your own food when traveling, b/I know what works now.
