To MB, Glad your back in the saddle again.  I am curious if since you are TX for 72 wks, and have had these infections if you have been on Neupogen or Procrit..  I am a slow responder, and looking for info on extending TX to share with my GI who will not consider extending myTX because I need Neupogen 3x a week.  How have you dealt with this?

Hi Merrybe, thanks for the note.  Things have been a little difficult here lately, but I think maybe there's some light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank you for everything!.Thanks MerryBee I knew you would tell it like it was.  When I asked the woman what the tx was and she told me steroids I was not that welcoming to that.  I don't know about all of this in my body after tx for hep c.  I will look into this very carefully.  Prednisone is scarry to me.

MerryBe don't know what happened but my sign on did not work so had to open a new site.  So glad I found you. Went to a Hep C support group Thursday and there was someone else there with the same post symptoms. The hurting muscles and etc. well she was dx with polymyalgia Rheumatica.  Look it up when you have time and tell me what you think.  Hope you are feeling wonderful.  As wonderful as we all can feel.

Thanksgiving is over!! no more leftovers!!!
Christmas is coming. I am in perfect health. Healthier than I was a year ago. Attribute it to my nutriotion vitamins, diet and exercise. Drank wine at 40th high school reunion and Thanksgiving. Not something I should have done, but no after effects. Gonna hold out for better treatment plan. Job is still a mess, but permanent. We better do coffee here during the holidays. Looking for family to adopt me for Xmas dinner. Gotta have cranberry sauce, the jelly kind however. just kidding.

Yes I work for Starbucks and have to admit that since I could have caffeine well I've been bad.  But I've been consuming more water and promise tomorrow I'll go caffeine fee once again.  So hard when your around it all the time. But even I have more pain seems like in my arms and FEET.  When I am couch bound and set awhile sometimes my arms just ache.  Of cours when I get up off the couch everything hurts.
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for helping myself.  I work for Starbucks and I was soooooo tired at the end of my shift.  I ended txs in September and I'm back working full time.  Maybe too soon but. I am still having so much joint and muscle pain that it's hard to move, get up and even try to walk.  My muscles hurt more now than when I was in tx.  Especially if I've been still for any length of time.
I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.  I'm sure we will talk before Christmas.  Do you have a ALF support group close?  In April we are going to have a walk.  Looking forward to helping with that.  My work is going to be involved a lot.

Keep In Touch,
SH aka sassisandi

Hi merryBe!  i have a quick question for you:  what do you think about possibly taking biotin supplements during tx?  my hair is taking forever to grow and i'm losing more hair at the same time.  i've done some research and it doesn't seem like it would affect tx in anyway... and i've already sent an email to my PA asking about it, but she hasn't returned my email...
thanks!  and have a great day!

At 1:30 a.m. I learned that my 4th week treatment PCR is UND <50.  I cried, I prayed, cried some more, and then puked! It's been a long day, and I can't even post right now I'm so overwhelmed. You were one of the first to help me when I came here freaked out and had so many medical concerns. VL was 30.3 million in August! Started tx 9/11 and went UND by 10/8. MerryBe, my little Toby is a treatment Godsend, he helps me every day to laugh, and I would definitely trust him to your care anytime!!  :-)  Hugs to you first, and SVR is going to be ours!

I LOVED your post on the 'sex drive' thread - and I learnt (again) from you!!  Thanks for all your valuable input  (sex-drive is the least of my problems but it was interesting about the estrogen!!).  Thanks Merrybe, for all the information you share.

Hi MerryB!  I made it thru shot 1, but only by the hair of my chinny chin chin.  lol  Got pretty sick, but doing fine now 3 days later, so I guess I can do shot 2.  Guzzling water so that must be helping.  Hope you're hanging in there!  Take care, Cathy
