Hi Lou, I just saw that no one posted a response to you. I will help anyway I can,so here goes,,,,,,first of all, do you have hep b or c? You were in a study not seeing a regular GI or hepatologist of your own?? If not,thats my first piece of advice, GET YOUR OWN DR! Though studies help the medical profession to learn, you need someone standing in your corner,looking out after YOU through this. If you have hep b, there are other treatments, such as Baraclude(which has reduced my husbands viral count substantially). Also, I dont believe there is any reason for a dr not to put you back on the treatment, if it in fact lowered your viral count the first time. good luck

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!!!"
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here, we might as well dance:)
