Well its into week 8 since this tx for me
I might pay for another PCR RNA ($155) here, cheaper than England I read.
Ah life... You really know the curve balls.
Hey! Other peginf suckers like me... Do you get this too???? Maybe I am the only nut on this planet who was pumped full of it at F0 and a VL of 420,000 and the wrong gene anyway
I am pretty sure I seem to be. Anyone else was really sick and many said no. I wasn't sick at all I just wasn't TESTED and put on peginf. Think what you will about me. Don't care, not a doctor.
But it's sure screwed up my audiation, my bones, luckily the "rare reactive lymphocytes with abnormal morphology" that it gave me are gone, lucky the severe neutropenia and thrombocytopenia and extremely low platelets have restored after these DAAs seem to have put a lid on my peginf hang over blood work, but it did introduce anxiety and PTSD into my life they're charmers aren't they (oh no! Ariels mentioned anxiety OMG)
Anyone who long term has battled these issues I applaud you because having onset only a few years ago and never having anxiety or PTSD b4 I certainly know the difference
Have a great day as you go about your tx or work or for the other side of the world, your rest time.
I'm booking a test for Friday at least I will know more b4 the final one.
