Today is the start of Week 4 , feeling very positive about
things though the last couple of days I've noticed I'm more tired than last week and the last two days I only walked my dog for 30 minutes and didn't do my usual 30 minute cardio workout...just don't have the energy :-(
I still feel sick with a tight stomach and it comes and goes, when I feel good I try to eat as much healthy stuff as possible and when dinner rolls around I eat what I can and if I can only eat half...so be it, I will usually have a small snack after that. My weight has actually gone up a few pounds but I am far from overweight, possibly due to me eating comfort foods at night when snacking...ice cream tastes so good at times
No more headaches! This seemed like it was a one off thing when it did happen and the headache lasted for days and I only had one small one after that day, took two Naproxen and it was instantly gone.
will be delivering my second batch of medication today for the next four weeks, I have a system to ensure I always take my pills on time and have not once missed taking them though sometimes if I wake up slighly later then I will take my pills about
two hours later than usual which is not a big deal from what I was told as long as I don't miss them.
Even if everything I have experienced so far is side effects I have to say they are not that bad, I am not dying and buckled over in pain and screaming and I am doing ok. Some days it sucks when I feel sick and just want to go lay down but oh well, thats the price to pay to be clean of Hepatitis C.
I was mentioning to my wife last night about
how thankful I am to be able to take take Sovaldi and Ribavirin for ONLY 3 months instead of the Peg+Ribavirin I was initially told I would be starting around March 1st.
My heart goes out to all those who suffered taking Interferon+Ribavirin for 6-12 months with some pretty horrible side effects, you people are all true heroes in my heart and its people like you that got us to the point we are now with Hepatitis treatments and instead of 6 months of hell with Peg+Ribavirin we are now down to 3 months with minimal side effects and I'm so sorry they did not have this treatment sooner for all of you.
Thanks again to all the wonderful people of this forum and the support you have given me since the first day I dropped into this forum, you've all helped me alot mentally dealing with this and you all keep me positive while I fight this virus.
