New meds for hep c DAY 1

New meds for hep c DAY 1

Good morning troopers, meds arrived yesterday so went through the paperwork again as today is my start date. This is a very new drug so is still being monitored by updates on side effects Etc

I canot be worse than the past 7 mnths, surely? I have to work as self employed cannot get any sickness help despite over 35 yrs NI payments. I hope to get away with the first 4 wks as people will be wrapped up with Christmas & New Year, see that attempt at humour 😂😂😂even from my bed. I have a shot at a new project tomorrow morning so don't want this to ruin it as I survive on my reputation to a degree.

I will write on here like a diary almost as I don't have support bar 1 friend but hey it's xmas 🎄🎄🎄and also many more may get this treatment good for the records maybe

keep warm & best wishes xxx

Thank you for being there. My head is done in. Just got diagnosed with fibrosis as well as hep c, and waiting to see which treatment I'll get. I'm sure the one my nurse mentioned began with an H. Just really nervous.

Hi suzi, aww I feel for you, ooh sounds like you may be on harvoni, that's the top one and the most expensive so not many having it. That's a positive. In a short time your mind will adapt & by then your treatment will almost undoubtedly be near to start date. I was in a terrible state of shock & horror but now don't give it much thought. Best to be diagnosed and get treated. Fear of the unknown is worse ☺ ask away, here to support. I know it's tough, it Sucks but can be cured 😍 😍 😘 I'm a susy in real life 😀
