I am wanting to get on this program...but how do I go about it? Do I just go to my doctor and say hey I need this stuff get me going? Have no ins so I need to find a way to get help somehow....any good advice on how to get started?
I required 9 blood transfusions during my incevek treatments... scary but im 3 weeks away from my 1 year Hep C treatments...and i feel so much better...hopefully the end results means Hep C is history''
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE GOING THRU THIS...GOD IS GOOD.. IRENE
I am doing the triple treatment I am now in week 14. I must say week 8 thru 12 was pretty bad but week 13 was the worst week of my life. Lots of itching upset stomach brain fog. I think it was a week of withdrawal. Week 14 has been almost like I am not on treatment.
Thought I would give an update on my husband. He is over the Incivek and feels much better. However, when he stopped the Incivek on July 6 - along with dehydration, he experienced A-fib on July 9 and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. He NEVER has had any problem with his heart and we contribute it to the treatment with HepC. However - the cardio dr didn't consult with the HepC doctor until the HepC doctor actually had to initiate the call. Not pleased with the cardio dr not considering the hepC treatment problems and prescribed 3 medicines to 'take care of the A-fib" problem. We are waiting until the 4 wk cardio appt to encourage the cardio dr to wean my husband off the cardio meds. So be prepared.....doctors don't necessarily like consulting with the doctor that knows what is going on! The HepC dr even wondered why they put my husband on Amiodadrone. But for those getting off the killer Incivek...there is light at the end of the tunnel........my husband started feeling better in one-two weeks after the last Incivek. The peg intron still causes some discomfort the day after his injection...but each day is going up. He will complete the meds on Sept 28...woohoo!
one of the best ways to shrink the haemorrhoids is to invert your legs. lie on the floor or the bed and swing your legs up the wall. stay like this for about 10 minutes daily and you should see an improvement. i an on week three of the incevik treatment and have developed haemorrhoids. my background as a yoga teacher gives me lots of tools to deal with the side effects and i'm hoping that as i move forward in treatment i can maintain this focus.
