well I made it

48 weeks for the second time. This was by far the harder attempt but I did it. You guys kept me on track when I wanted so bad to quit. I went for an AFP Marker test and ultra sound yesterday and the nurse said that my liver looked good....no fatty infiltration and it wasn't enlarged......good news.....my viral load test should be in next week but I'm sure I willbe undetected. I am so happy to be finished, but like the first time I am a bit reluctant to stop, cuz I feel like I'm not fighting it......strange hah?. I lost 45 lbs and it seems like half my muscle tone.
I'm even off the procrit cuz my HGB is 10.1.
Thank you to all you brave and strong folks who continue to fight.
I am scheduled for another pcr in 2 months.....keeping my fingers crossed this time.
Wow, I'm getting my life back, how I miss it.

Thanks to everyone for the good vibes...fellin better with each passing day...I actually feel clear...I mean in the brain.....what a great feeling. Getting some of my breathing back too..it's so nice to be off the juice......if I can do, we all can

  Great news about your breathing, Uncle, it sounded so awful, all of your side effects!. My hubs bought me this Vitamix juicer when I finished Treatment,and at first I was a skeptic, but I am actually having fun with it now, making all these health drinks.  I do think it takes at least a year to get over the Treatment Trauma, make sure you pamper yrself real good :)

Good on you! You've done it. You've completed the tx.
You should be congratulated for going the distance as tx is not easy but you stuck it out.
Looking forward to hearing of your svr

uncle - those are sweet words.  IT does take a long time for the cocktail to leave the system, but it is so very nice to be done.  Congratulations on a great finish
548668 tn?1394187222
Big congrats on completing and also on the state of your liver - that's wonderful.   I remember feeling 'naked of meds' and yes; like walking without your crutches - I'm betting you're getting a little more used to it now!!!  Same goes - looking forwarding to getting out the Red Shoes for your SVR.
