About Me: Female, 66, Vancouver, WA, member since Feb 2009
53 years old.Diagnosed with Hep C in 2002. Under-went peg interferon chemo 6 months, did not go into re-mission and respond to the treatment.
As of Dec. 2008 to current Feb. 2009 have been experiencing a lot of inflammation in the liver, right liver pain,( 2 week period of extreme nausea, has sub-sided for the most part ). Recently did CT scan and they found the two lesion, one on the gall-bladder and other liver hemangiomas.
Would like to hear from others who have good information links and or similar case sites.Looking to educate myself and find out what I can do to pro-long my life.Have extreme fatigue issues, and non-restorative sleep.Recently told i may have mild sleep apnea-have a doctor app March 3 rd for sleep apnea machine.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thank you okaysweetie. My sister did not have the treatment for hep c because she has psoriasis and doctor told her it would run rampant on her body. And I believe even at that time, they did not think it would help her. I ride the roller coaster of feelings as I have three sisters and we are all very close and the thought of losing one sometimes brings me to my knees...figuratively. Not wanting to be a downer for you or any of the others.
