Just a quick note to say hi! The pain has eased up a lot, but not the swelling and my temp was only 99.4 when I got up this morning. If it goes up this afternoon, I'll be calling the doc. I'm wondering if it wasn't triggered by my having to take my kids to catch a plane to my sister's house Tuesday morning. We had to get up at 3:00 AM, and I didn't get back home until 7:30, and then ate my breakfast and took my pills... which is my normal time. I did drink a cup of coffee, like I always do when I got up, and also drank about 20oz. of water during the time I took my kids. Did tx make your system extremely sensitive to schedule changes like that?

to newleaf:  Thanks for your help.  You are the first to suggest lupus as a possibility. I am going to make a dr. appt today and request a blood test.  Sorry if this is repeated.  I'm terrible at using this site.  You think by now I'd get it.  lol

Thank you for everything! if there is a problem with hemoglobin,would he have told me,?most doctors seem to just beat about the bush and not really say whats going on,
i hope to god that there isnt any thing wrong and that he sees his mistake and puts me on both meds,
i agree ,and wouldnt mind having the biopsy just to find out how much,if any scarring ,
there is ,in these the early stages it must be difficult for all the newly diagnosed,
kind regards

Thanks for the note!  (I just noticed it.)  You should have posted it on the thread since it was the best answer I got =D  I don't know if I told you about the CT scan results, but no blood clots, no feedback on my liver (or so she said), definate gallstones, and a mass in my breast.  More and more doctor appts I guess.  Oh, and now the psychiatrist has started me on lithium as well as the wellbutrin. I can't find many old posts discussing taking that crud while txing, so I might have to post a question about it.  How the heck are you doing lately?

Hi newleaf - yes, definitely a different study. Thank you for the "finish line" comment...starting to feel better already!!! I heard you had a difficult time with tx too, so did I. I was sick as a dog for 3mo! In addition to the normal sx(severe anemia and neutropenia), I had strep, thrush, and pneumonia. The chest pains and 30lbs of weight loss came in the last 4mo of tx. But hey, we hung in there, didn't we?!!!  Here's the link to the study I was in, also the same that ejoli "was" in but she rolled over to another.  http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00845065?term=p05685&rank=1

Thanks for the note.  After thinking about it, going from 13,890 to 77 isn't even as dramatic a change in VL as you had. I'm wondering though, even if I have genotype 1 (they can't determine it), do you know if I would I still need to do 48 weeks of TX even if my VL stays that low before I start?

Thanks for updating me.  How can you treat parathyroid disease and do you think it is caused by HCV?

Funny you wrote as I read your post re: parathyroid and wanted to say thanks for that info.  I will definitely get blood work for that as well as bone scans.  Glad you know what's wrong so you have a chance to correct it.  HCV and the drugs that treat it suck.
