Hi Connie, Thanks for asking. The doctor was very positive, he told me that they are seeing very good results now between 3 and 6 months. So maybe I will not have to be on this stuff as long as I thought. Home health will pick up the medicine and come out , he said it should be one day next week, but I have not heard from them yet. They are supposed to instruct me in the administartion of the meds and after that I will get med in from UPS.

My doctor was not at all concerned that my viral load was as high as it was, but from talking with other people, I was freaking out.

Well, still very nervous but trying to keep a "positive" attitude.

hugs,
flopsie

That's really good news, Flopsie. I like the part about the med being delivered. I had to pick it up at my doctor's office, but they gave me one month at a time. I had to take it 3 times a week. I injected in my thighs--bruised something awful and was a nonresponder. I think you are going to do just great, so stay positive!

Hugs,
Connie

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"

Flopsie, the untreated hep C caused primary liver cancer--a huge tumor that metastasized to the inferior vena cava. This was diagnosed a year ago in April '05. I had chemoembolization in March '06 and it killed 90% of the tumor. I then had TheraSphere--a targeted radiation treatment done internally. I will find out in several weeks the results of that. However, I still face removal of the entire right lobe of the liver, followed by hep C treatment with the newer drugs. When I first was treated, there was only Interferon, and they did not test for viral loads. I was having blood work done every 6 months, and a sonogram once a year.

Hugs,
Connie
