Hi new here
Hi I just joined this group and just wanted to say hi. I am on my second week of pegasys and ribavirin and feel like crap pretty much every second(yay). I have the usual symptoms of flu like aches and fever plus exhaustion sweating constant nausea and stomach pain after eating and near constant gas.
Welcome, Mrs Washington. Hang in there, I am starting week 12 of triple incivek, genotype 1a. The side effects are horrendous & seem at some point to encompass my life. The itchy rash is the worse for me, followed by the brain fog & extreme fatigue. When I eat or drink sometimes it taste metallic. I get lots of hope from the online support group & try to take all their advice, drinks LOTS of water, get enough sleep, etc. I can't wait for this to be over. I took labs friday for viral load to see if I am undetectable at 12 weeks, I'm praying.
Im praying for you Cornelia
Cornelia I am so sorry I have heard so many bad things about the incivek. I can't imagine itching on top of everything else hang in there hon and let us know what your lab results are. Tammy lol yes this medicine gives and gives doesn't it?
