Thanks Mike, I haven't had a chance yet to do that, been busy this week but will have a few days off after tonight and will do that soon. Good to hear it's getting hectic Great job at getting the word out there. You are amazing to say the least
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
Thanks CC yup first blood came back almost there I am <30 so a few meanies to nuke still
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

Hi Ariel, That's great news just keep blasting away at those stragglers
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 oh well we all know how these systems work I'll refrain from further comment on that subject
Yeah been having some back pain the last couple of days along with the new knee pain 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
Stop saying 'I wish' and start saying 'I will'. :)
Thank you received: 423
Happy for you being on tx! Like many of us, you don't have side effects! Yay!
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!

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
BOOOOOM, there it is!!
