Your name has always made me smile, largely because of the association with this:
As a gold label subscriber to the strand by strand grey ad falling out method, and a past user of the time-proven make it a #1 crew cut method....
Anyway, it's been awesome to help people make that leap of faith and share in the results.
I don't feel I've done anything special, other than do a standard doctor disease thing - here's a patient - here's a disease - here's a treatment - connect the f***ing dots. I have been both sad and disappointed that so few of my colleagues have done the same, despite overwhelming evidence generics = cure...
To everyone who took that leap of faith with me all I can say is thanks - we did it together.
I miss Gaj, every day, and wish we'd gone harder earlier. 20-20 hindsight and the same GT3 issues. He failed the first round, we cleared it second time around but his SVR12 came up with a "shadow". That f***ing shadow was not even an HCC. Is was another rare and aggressive form of Hep C related liver cancer.
Sadly he was not the first patient for whom treatment arrived too late. I wish I could have done more but we tried. The sad reality remains that for some patients, treatment will come too late.
It's been said before, but is worth saying again. If you have Hep C get treated.
Gaj added more colour to his Avatar the first time he went UND and EOT and he added this...
I just wish it could have been this for him
The first one is # dance, the other is # magic
F**k I wish we could make the magic happen 100% of the time.
