Fiance had HCV, cirrhosis, ESLD, ascites, and portal hypertension. Was transplanted June 2004. Now, on interferon and ribavirin. Hepatitis C is back.
I will pass this on to my hubby, That must be the answer. I appreciate all the responses.
It is wonderful to have a place that has so many areas we can visit with all our problems.
How goes the itching?
Mark's got some water retention again, so we're back to ~scratch~ ~scratch~ ~scratch~.
Unfortunately we are not doing so well. Considering the Interferon, he is just getting weaker and weaker.Not a good sign I know.
The only problen (aside from all the side effects) we have WHI for RX and they are going to require we pay up front and they will reimburse. We have to do that with his PAP+, but it is not as expensive..only $75.00 per RX, pharmacy says Interferon could be well over $1,000.00. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do, you know? I don't understand why they call it special formula, when it is two separate meds, the Ribavirin and the Interferon.
Well. we will see how it goes,
Sorry to hear about the side effects. Especially sorry to hear about the insurance issues. It's just not fair.
Hubby wouldn't happen to be a Veteran, would he? Mark reminded me that, if he is, you should be able to get his meds at the VA.
Just a thought.
God Bless. We're keeping you both in our prayers.
Actually, the rules state that links to commercial sites are allowed under special circumstances.

Thanks for your help and consideration. I'll have to get to the store and try that lotion.
