thanks Connie for you response.
I am in US.....actually Pa. and the research hospital I live near opened up the clinical trial
a couple of months ago using the PEG/ribavirin/Bocepravir and then looking at anemia. So they are actually looking at giving Procrit if the Hematocrit levels fall too low. So I am guaranteed the 3 drug. The boceprevir is very similar to the Teleprevir by Vertex. I think similar results.
I started out with VL of 8.555 mil. and came down to 484,000 in 2 weeks. I will get 4th week results tomorrow. I have been on the 3rd drug, boceprevir for only 2 weeks, so will have blood drawn tomorrow to see how that has hopefully slammed the virus.
This trial is for 48 full weeks, as they think the full 48 weeks will be the recommended therapy time once this drug is released. My doctor says it is the best way to rid the dx with no relapse.
I am so fatigued, cannot work, and hate medicine as I have always sought out alternative ways. I cannot express how hard this is for me to cope, but I try to hold out hope that by next April I could be healed. I guess reading the posts on this site, that it is worth trying to beat this.
Hope to hear from more folks, as I know there has to be more people who have been on this trial.
