No sorry Nadia,but i will ask.nhs wales do not do many such tests.It used to annoy me that they didnt do an il28b test before starting you on interferon.That was a good indicator if it would work or not but they just used to prescribe interferon anyway,even up until recently.
Today I'm starting week 2 of my treatment.
On the first day last week I felt light headed and "happy drunk" probably would be the best description. It was hard to concentrate on my every day tasks but my spirits were high and I felt very excited. By day 3 my head was a lot clearer with no more spinnings and drunk sensations.
I Sleep well and my appetite is out of control. As a result +1kg.
Strangely the meds seem to be quite strong in the last couple of hours before the next one is due. They used to spin me a little in the first few hours but now it's a little like being stoned for the first two hours or so.

The headache started a couple of nights ago but I'm coming down with the cold too. Sore throat and stuffed nose today. The headache is very mild anyway.
The nurse couldn't give me an earlier appointment then the 4 weeks one. I think I'm going to contact my GP to get a private blood form. Too curious to wait so long!
I was the same. Two weeks was long enough for me to wait, so I had a vl test (which the clinic messed up and had to re-do) and GGT (my only high liver reading on the base line tests). GGT result came back the next day and had dropped massively. The meds were working!
