I wanted to share my son's story here as it may help anyone else in my position.
I had hep for probably 30 years, & finally after 4 horrible treatments with the dreaded Interferon + Ribas I got cured
but unfortunately , after trying to have a child for 10 years on IVF I finally had my boy, only to find later he also had the dreadful virus
It broke my heart & I felt guilty for the past 15 years.
He has gradually started getting hep side affects, tiredness, & getting sick a lot.
Nobody would help, I talked with different specialists/doctors, all he was offered by his uncaring specialist was the Interferon + Ribas but actually laughed at me when I asked him about the generics for him?!
How could they condone the Interferon but not the generics??
Then I found Dr James, can't tell you how unbelievably happy it made me to find him.
What a wonderful, special human being he is. A doctor who actually genuinely cares.
So...." J " (my 15 year old son) started on Twinvir 2 days ago.
NO SIDE AFFECTS AT ALL!!
His VL was around 2 million. LFT's up slightly pre treatment.
He will have his first bloods done a week into tx (treatment).
Can't wait to see what they reveal.
He seems to already have more energy, & sleeping well at night.
So let the dragon slaying begin
Good luck to you all,
