Hi I am in the 10th week of 12 week treatment with Ribavirin, Exviera and Viekirax. Had the usual side effects at various times (rash, mouth ulcers, nausea, tiredness etc) BUT the major problem I have had is that a pelvic (and later associated blader) infection leapt in at week 6 and ever since I have been struggling to clear this an dhave also ended up with thrush. My GP is very wary of giving abx and so has relied on Co-amoxiclav. After 10 days I seemed to clear it but after another 10 days it was back, now after 10 days of the same drug again I can feel it still there. My questions are: Has anyone else had other infections leap in when on the treatment? Has anyone else had troubles with thrush/cystits whether or not on abx? and finally (sorry) does anyone know whether there are specific abx I should avoid? I have tried ringing my liver consultant several times, but they have not answered and I have a GP appt tmw again to try and get help to actually clear this - it is very painful. Hep C viral load has been undetectable at week 4 and 8 (c35 at week 2) , but to be honest this pelvic infection is killing me so not really celebrating the hep c success as I had expected to do!
