post treatment

I've finished my 2nd go round of tx first of dec. I was on for 52+4 weeks 180mcg and 1200mg daily. I have not worked since I started. Has anyone developed or experienced other prob. post tx.? I've developed fibromialgia which I was told by pcp that it may have something to do w white blood count; as well as I havent been keeping things down. I've lost more weight since I've stopped tx. Dr have done tests and now have me on prevalite and have no explanation why this is happening. Thanks

Hi, I did not treat as long as you nor did I treat twice but after TX I was nauseated and puking for days at a time and it went on about every 2 months or so for about 2 years.  It still happens but not as often and not as bad.  Had an endocsope and it was gastritis so the doc said.

I also have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  Good luck, it does get better.

Cindy, I'm sorry you are feeling poorly.  Since you are still losing weight and having trouble keeping things down, it makes me think of a situation with someone from another Hep C forum who ended up having candida, or thrush, throughout her body after treatment.  It caused her the symptoms you are talking about and it took her docs quite a while to finally zero in on it.  You might mention that to your docs to check you for it.  

Since this was your 2nd go with treatment, it could be that your body is worn down and that it will take a while to gradually get better.  I hope you improve soon.
