No more incivek - no more itch (touch wood) and man, I am so hungry!

Apr 28, 2013 - 9 comments

Finished the incivek 10 days ago. Its leaving present (the itch) has gone too touch wood.
I feel quite good (relatively speaking). My head is clearer - no overbearing veil of nausea and queasyness all the time. The itch was scary but its gone now hopefully.
I've eaten so much today and really enjoyed the food - healthy breakfast, big lunch and big dinner.
My friends reckon I look better too - not like "walking dead" as one of them put it, lol.
Hopefully my hgb will be up for tomorrow's blood test so my riba can be upped again. Still on 600mg - should be on 1000mg

So very glad you are doing better. I agree the convulsive itching was awful.
I am glad it is gone for you.
You sound good

I am so glad the itching is gone.  What a nightmare that itch is.  I still have rash but doesn't itch at all.  It is back to what it was earlier on.  You do sound really good and I am so glad you feel better.  Take care!

Thank you!!!
When I think of how I felt on the incivek, this part is doable in comparison.  (Touch wood)
Am aware though, that it may get rough around week 20.

Here's hoping aye Asle,
I am on reduced riba too since week 5. 600mg. what about you?
Hgb from Monday blood test is still 86 (8.6 to those in usa) so they don't want to put it up - am so tempted to start taking 1 more tab anyway so that at least I'm on 800mg. I suppose they're freaking that I get a heart attack or such like but I really feel so much better after the incivek and feel like a different person!!!
