I'm treating in a boceprevir trial and rosponding extremely well (VL-wise) except for all of the blood crashing.  I have been trying to talk him into taking the next step of visiting a hepatologist and at least getting the VL and genotype done.  Then we'd know maybe if he was born with it and if he cleared it on his own (I've read that many babies do).  Can't get him to budge and seeing his mom in bed isn't helping, I'm sure.  He's 32 and got married in November so maybe I can hit him again when that honeymoon effect wears off. I'm responding so well that I'm fairly confident of SVR and perhaps will have to wait until my blood straightens out post-TX to convince him to get moving. "Look! See! Mom did it and is well and doesn't even look like a lizard any more".

Saw your post to Summer.  My son has Hep C and does not know how he got it.  Of course I'm afraid it was through me.  Did you find out when she was little?  Is she the same genotype as you?  Most docs say, no, that's extremely uncommon but I worry.  Please tell me more.

LOL, Isobella...I know the feeling! I was trying to do my own since my skin is so sensitive and I thought my usual waxing would be more painful than usual. But now I look downright ridiculous! My bangs aren't quite long enough to cover up my goofs.....

Yeah now I'm kinda stuck without a plan, just tryin' to get my health back up to regroup and decide what I am gonna do.  I'm certain alot of what I went thru had to do with poor health to begin with.  Anyways, take care and at least you will reach SVR, I'll settle for that.lol   God Bless and here's some hugs all the way from California...

Hey fellow dragon blaster!!  I'm doing alright, I just got my placebo or the real deal yesterday.  Gawd!!  That stuff taste nasty, it certainly adds another negative sx and overall pain in the butt, but such is life for us tx'ers trying to get thru this wall of dragon virions. lol  It sure is nice to have someone like you and Marcia to follow behind, this forum helps me alot.  My first month was extremely difficult and I still have terribly bad moments but it's not half as bad as when I started.  I'm starting to take it all in stride and that's positive, I hope you're doing well.  I know it's possible that you may only have a short time left.  I'll keep everything crossed for you, take care friend and God Bless

Well God Bless you for sending me a note, that was very sweet.  I wasn't doing well with taking the Riba, too many sx's.  It finally dawned on me that maybe it was my acid reflux.  Luckily I still have a few meds off an old prescription.  Anyways, I hope things turnaround for me.  I stayed off the forum for a bit because I was going thru some very ugly anger and it was coming out the side of my neck at everything in site.lol  Anyways, I hope you're doing well.  I have my 4th shot coming up, you must be up there, passed me up from the gate.lol  That's ok, all we gotta do is reach SVR.  You know what's really something is my hands aren't as swollen and my back doesn't hurt even half as much as it use to.  Gotta run, keep on smiling and take care.

Hi ya,
I hope you're doing well with your tx, this is some serious krap here.  It's really kind of educational, but they really should have something better than this krappy ride.lol  Don't worry, I didn't stop by to snivel, can't say I don't snivel, but right now I'm trying to turn things around.lol  You're very fortunate to have a work situation that you can work around, a regular 9-5 is not conducive to tx.  I thought there was a possibility that I could tough it out and I wouldn't have to tell anyone, well I had to have the clinic write a note for me already.lol  My boss is a real dik, excuse my french, but you have no idea.  Since I gave him the excuse he hasn't bugged me so that's good.  Anyways, I gotta run, just stopped by to send hugs.  fret

Glad to hear from you as always, now I am familiar with the "yucks" everyone talks about.  I was hoping not to feel any sx's and I really thought for a few hours I would get by without any sx's, that was lame thinking.lol  This krap is serious, these meds kicked my butt last night, I can't think of anything worse than this tx, absolutely nothing.  They should use this tx to punish and torture our enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay.  lol  Yeah that's really something about my bx, I told one of my trial nurses that maybe it was from the one time I took MT.  lol  I was kidding of course, I was just surprised to get a lower score, I would have tx'ed anyways, b/c I can't live with this krap any longer.  I hope you're doing well, take care friend.

Yeah it went fine, I got my biopsy, ekg and chest xray so now I'm just waiting for a yes and a date.  My consent forms say that I won't be given my biopsy results, which is something I don't like, but I'll go thru tx without knowing.  Maybe when I'm done with the study they will let me know.  Anyways, I hope you're doing well and it's really good news to know that you weren't dropped from the study.  I think you're gonna be just fine, you got the fight for a better life in your hands and I think you're doing a great job.  God Bless

You know, that's what it comes down to, getting into a rhythm, just beware, because the rhythm ends up being "go with the flow" still, all the way through as you can get your methodology down but sides will hit when they hit.  I saw your recent "byline" and all I could think of was .. "My, what a lovely bunch of polka dots!"  :)  I hope the rash isn't hitting you too hard.  Take care my dear friend and keep conquering.

I hope you're doing well with your trial tx and you're not going thru too many sx's.  Anyways, I went and did my initial blood work on 10/10 and it looks like all systems are go, for right now anyways.  I will get further conditions and confirmation, next week.  I am really excited about it for the most part and hopefully I can do this.  The nurses there are great and it just makes it that much more better as I would be txing under ppl I trust and honor.  They are all always so positive and personable, it's great.  Anyways, I still didn't get a start date, but things look promising.  Wish me luck and I hope you're not having bad sx's.  I can't say I know how you feel, but I will know soon.  I send hugs and prayers, friend.  Take care and God Bless

Just thinking about you and how you are doing on the trial.  I hope everything is going smoothly for you with minimal sx's.  I'm trying to get hooked up with UCD.  I'm already back at the clinical trial site, but I want to cover all bases.  That way if I'm denied another trial, like the Boceprevir trial I'm waiting to hear on, at least I can tx with some of the affiliates working in conjunction with the clinical trial doctors.  Anyways, just thought I would send long distance hugs, check on your status and tell you about mine.  There's more information about what I've been going thru on my profile.  God Bless
