I have a question regarding supplements. I stopped taking almost all of my supplements except for B12,D3 and a probiotic. So I am having some knee pain from an old wake boarding injury. Years ago I started taking glucosamine and it helped but was still having occasional problems with the knee. I read up and switched to taking tart cherry which really helped. I haven't had any problems with my knee since except for this week. I think I probably overextended it Sunday playing corn hole at my son's on Sunday since it's been hurting since I woke on Monday :(

Does anyone know if tart cherry or anything with cherries is contraindicated to sof/dac?
The bottle supplement facts say:
VitaCherry HiActves 465mg
Tart Cherry Powder (fruit) (25:1 concentrate from fresh cherries, minimum 0.5% anthocyanins and 1% flavonoids)
Other ingredients: Rice flour, gelatin, magnesium stearate

Been looking through the threads regarding supplements and also just trying to find anything online about it to no avail :(
Would really like to start taking it again since I do believe it really worked for me for several years. Anyway if anyone knows anything or has any references you can point me to that would be greatly appreciated #love

Not surprised because I was pumped with peg/inf despite being F0 before I knew anything much about this illness and I bet there are some sneaky ones with big muscles that need a little extra blast
I'm hoping next time all sorted
Thanks for asking

Mucho paino!

Hi Ariel, That's great news just keep blasting away at those stragglers :evil:
Yep they found possibly 2 kidney stones on the right with my liver u/s, they didn't bother to look at the left since they were supposed to be looking mostly at my liver. So went to GP this week and will do another u/s tomorrow on both of my kidneys to find out if I have them on both sides and their size. Geeze you think they could have took a looky on the left the first time ;) but no now they can charge me and my insurance for another u/s :-1: :angry: oh well we all know how these systems work :whistle: I'll refrain from further comment on that subject :blink:
Yeah been having some back pain the last couple of days along with the new knee pain :sick: I believe it is more related to a stressful week at work more than any sides of tx. Trying to stay hydrated but was so busy last night at work I barely put a dent in my water bottle.
Thanks for the hugs and back at you #love

Hi CC2B,
Happy for you being on tx! Like many of us, you don't have side effects! Yay! :cheer:

I am approaching EOT. Only 13 magic pills left. :)
Vit B12 and vit D were in the normal range, but low. I took these vitamins from half treatment

Sorry for kidney stones! Hope it does not hurt.

For the knee. I overused my left shoulder at work 2 weeks ago and I had pain. I used a gel with diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, called Voltaren. Is for topical/external use, twice a day. After 3 days the pain was gone. :)
Hope it helps you also!
Wish you all the best and UNDETECTED soon! :lol:
HCV since I don't know. Diagnosed in 2010.

Thanks isaing4, The knee is slowly feeling better and I do have a similar type of lotion that I have been using and I think it has helped :)
I got my kidney u/s done on Friday and my 4 week labs drawn on Saturday, so hopefully I will get some answers soon. Monday is a holiday here so that will probably slow things up a bit.

Congrats on almost being at the EOT and best wishes for SVR 12 #flower
