First Day Off Incivek

Dec 19, 2012 - 2 comments

I took my last dose of Incivek last night and feel so relieved I made it through it. The grind of it was starting to get to me and I'll bet I've read every post on the Internet about how people feel post-Incivek. I took my shot of Peg-Intron last night at 7:00 p.m.

I felt like I was hit harder by the day-after-shot side effects and was couch-ridden and huddled up in blankets all day. The good news is that at least for today the intense itching did not hit me. My itching and rash had gotten a lot worse from weeks ten through 12 but today was much better.

I just ate a taco with fresh salsa and I could actually taste it and enjoy it! Wow, it was incredible to taste food again.

I was Und. at four weeks and am awaiting my 12 week viral load test. My Hgb. dropped from 15.6 down to 10.4 over 12 weeks and my platelets are holding steady around 70 down from 156 baseline.

I will try to post in my journal how I feel in the days and weeks after Incivek.

Yes, Congratulations on finishing Inc. I found it wonderful not to have to get up, eat fat, and take pills every 8 hours. I finally got some sleep, LOL.
