:-)  i!!! i survived the procedure, the iv went in the first time- yea!!! and the only bad part was the oxygen they gave me made me terribly sick and drunk feeling. so i dont know what it was and they was surprised also. it was really bad smelling and its just now left my system. ugh. but im glad i got it done and didnt cancel... they found a bunch of stuff bad and so now i have to get this all healed and fixed. they took biopsys also. ill let you know what happens. thank you so for asking. bless you .

what i went thru today was where they looked down my throat to see what was going on and if the crohns was back. so that got done and after this gets taken care of, then the interferon. so far tho im still having fevers.

Hi
I finished 48 weeks of combo therapy with interferon and ribavirin about 7 months ago. It was not easy, but yes, I am still alive. It was tough, I will admit that. I also had very good results, my viral load has been undetectable since week 12 of treatment. I chose treatment because I felt so terrible that I believed that it was worth a try. Had chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, spinal arthritis, hypertension, and depression. Most of my symptoms got worse during treatment but I had a good doc that treated the side effects such as pain, inability to sleep, depression, etc.

Hang in there. I know it is stressful plus you feel like heck but you will make it through, just try to take one day at a time and do what you need to do to make it through each day.
