Small update from the mermaid cave
Went to Liver Clinic took privately sourced excellent path results from blood collected at around day 32 which was reported on Day 40 as UND gave a duplicate to nurse got gold star for providing duplicate rather than them photocopying
Sat and waited for a gastro for so long I started making toys by blowing up the blue gloves from the sanitation box
Organised EOT bloods. Receptionist didn't know what EOT meant. Now does.
Lovely gastro this time, regular one gone to Europe nice timing given the PBS recent thingy.
I'm one of only patients on tx was told. You can all read into that one good to be our own boss hey.
Booked follow up colonscopy had a small scare post interferon re polyps and adenomas so now need frequent check not looking forward to it hate general anaesthetic have a rough time historically but liver clinic hospital know about it and frankly I don't want to have it done through my private health insurance anyway.
Have read as many updates as I can and stoked to read EOT and SVR coming in.
Just over three weeks to go here
Insomnia has increased don't care.
Nausea decreased and I have put on 7kgs in total very pleased that the skeletal legacy of peginf is now resolved. Looking much better than just bones with Surfie muscle now face is fuller and tummy too. More feminine.
Hair very soft, skin much healthier granuloma reducing weekly will hope for the best with that I would like to never take predisolone again
Love my psych visits fantastic to chat to another lady who has ears and who is completely void of judgment re why I was put through peginf for no reason it's been a very difficult realisation for me. Like how she allows me to grieve for my lost hearing and other residual physical damage from that tx.
Very healing for my mind and going forward
It's 4am here and I have been awake since 2 despite a long day
Gastro at clinic agreed that insomnia is a sx they noted during trials phase at hospital it's just ride it out anyway it's quiet in the small hours I like it for collecting my thoughts and something just do a TM (transendental meditation)
So that is me done. EOT is April 4 no bloods til then as I mentioned when I got my UND earlier
Just riding the wave until then and the Brian Wilson gig the night b4 so nice way to go out.
Hoping all are traveling well
Sending happy vibes
