Hi Sidne,
  Thanks for the note. Part of my decision in doing tx was that I too was already suffering the effects of hcv. I was told that even if I didn't get svr, the tx would slow down the progression and I would feel better. I also knew, that the longer I waited, the harder I would be to treat. Even though things didn't go the way I'd hoped, I still have a chance. Meanwhile, I'm just taking one day at a time, hoping I feel better soon.
  Yes Vancouver is beautiful, I love it here. You mentioned riding the buses in Mexico....that's an adventure in itself,lol. What fun! Take care, and let me know how you're doing. Shelley

No idea, haven't seen her in a long time... It's for the best the thread got deleted. I cannot imagine new ppl getting onto medhelp and getting a fright. I'm going to take a break for the weekend. My husband will be home in an hour and we will be enjoying each others company. Lots of love, Marcia.

When I first contacted the pharmacy for a quote, they told me about $700-800 month for the Peg, so it would've been no problem to do 48 weeks at that estimate, as my current HMO has a $700 deductible and a $25,000 cap on prescriptions (but everything over $25,000 I have to pay 100% out-of-pocket).  When I went to pick up the shots, I found out that the 4 PEG shots this month was over $7,000!  There would be no way for me to be able to afford that, so unless it was a typo (which I'm trying to find out now, but the pharmacy hasn't called me back yet), I might have to change insurance to make sure I can continue to get the meds for my husband, because we sure can't afford an added $7,000 a month!

Thank you Baja for taking the time to check in with me and offer that extra encouragement.
I have decided to get the tests,,,the difficulty is getting a dr. who will LISTEN ....(that's why I posted on social/ thinking that someone could recommend someone with a good manner in Denver, but maybe that's not allowed on the site, I don't know).
I try to let the dr.s what I can and can't tolerate, but they do their thing anyway, and I pay the price.
I got two skin biopsies two weeks ago, they wouldn't do it without some sort of numbing, and I ended up with blood poisoning at both injection sites, despite my telling and asking them to utilize nothing,  It is just now, two weeks later, that I am out of bed and active again.
Anyhow, i am here today, I am alive today..

my doctor left the decision up to me. He said he could tell I am the type of person that needs to make up my own mind about things. The nurse practitioner warned me to not let the depression sink too low before I decide to take the AD's because its harder to treat then. I have decided to pre treat with AD's because I had a really really bad week this week. It made me realize that I might need a little help. I might already be getting depressed before treatment even begins. So, I will start my last week in Thailand. That should give me 3 weeks before treatment to start working.

I hope you keep your spirits up. We can make it through this :-)

Happy to hear the antidepressants are working. I'm thinking more and more about taking them before treatment, which starts December 12th! My appointment went well. My doctor was so amazing. I feel nervous but happy to get this over with.

Just checked out your girl. What a wonderful strong voice she has. You must be so proud! I saw TOP in concert here in Copenhagen about two years ago. Had back stage VIP pass etc, cause we are good friends with Raul Rekow from Santana, who also has played with them. Raul also plays with my husband sometimes. My bro Ira Coleman is also a bass player, upright... jazz, has played with practically everyone, like Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Marsalis borthers, et, etc... he plays with and is musical director for DD Bridgewater since many years now. Myself, I was going to study music at Berklee Boston, but ended up not going after all. I was into singing, sometimes I do backing vocals for my husband. My eldest son raps, my second son is studying piano and bass.

Hola! How are you doing? I have my doctors appointment tomorrow where I will get everything ordered for treatment (hopefully). If everything goes as planned, I will start in early December. And I go to Thailand next week! How are you feeling?

Hi sweetie, yes I have. And thank you, thank you, for being so happy for me. It was kind of expected as I had less than 80 left at 4 weeks. Now we just have to find out how long I have to extend, after my doc comes back from San Francisco... :-)

Lots of love, marcia

People complained that everything got more expensive. But they didn't change because of a recession. So different scenario. And the Euro used to be lower that the USD, but has been worth much more for a long time now.
We kept the Danish Crown in Denmark, DKK. It has been very steady, like the EUR.

So the Amero is actually not a secret, but if what he says is correct, the way it will go down sounds very, very fishy.

Q-vo!!  Wish I could make the upside down question mark, anyways yeah I'm hopefully starting tx really soon.  Just kick back and educate yourself and maybe you will start and maybe not.  It seems from what I read about your Fibroscan that according to your results you can put it off for awhile.  Anyways, I really in my whole life never thought I would ever tx until a nice friend of my wife's started in a telaprevir trial.  She told me that while my VL and biopsy didn't look too bad that maybe I should consider tx.  That's when I had to take a really good look at my life and how badly the symptoms are kicking my butt and I'm so tired of being tired and depressed or bummed out.  Gotta tx and I gotta run or I'll hit that 800 word mark.  
God Bless

Thanks, bajawoman.  It has been a difficult ride.

My parrot, Venus, is a blue-fronted Amazon and she can talk but she chooses not to.  hehehehe

Good Luck with the smoking - it's crucial you stop before TX as one of the main SX is shortness of breath.

Hi, glad you're back, and hope things are well with you. Any idea what happened? I was going to respond to your post, and it was gone. Just for the record, I thought it was an interesting concept. I would definately consider recouping at something like that. Now that yo've had your fibroscan, have you decided what you're going to do? My thoughts and prayers arewith you whatever you decide.
