Connie, I ditto donna's post! I had my gallbladder out 7 years ago, now I have IBS. Marks was removed a few year's ago, no problems with the "D". I hope your Pet Scan went well. Sorry you have to go through the surgery, but you are in very good hands. If the surgery is anything like the transplant surgery, you recover quick! The drug that is about to go into phase 3 of testing for hepC, is having good results, I know of one person that was undetectable at 6 weeks of treatment. So something to consider once it is on the market. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.
Connie, My fingers are crossed for you and saying prayers! Yes, the drug is offering shorter treatment and very good results!!! I was looking into it myself as I tested positive for HepC in January. Marks Dr. saw me along with his wonderful RNP and my viral load came back undetectable. They said my body kicked the virus, I was one of the few lucky ones. I am to be tested 2 more times before they will release me from their care. We also had Michael tested and he was negative. We have really had so much happening!
I am in just awe over how Mark is progressing!:) Excited YES!!!!
