Oh you poor thing, crikey what a handful! I think you're hitting the hardest point, the middle. nausea is the worst thing ever, I can't tolerate it. I use fresh ginger all the time. I put a thick slice in hot water or herbal tea. It helps for a short time. pity about extra kids, mine are grown up. but my daughter, and cat and boyfriend coming for Xmas! tried explaining but people can't see what we feel. Maybe the worst won't last long. fingers x ed 4 you. What meds you on? xx

I'm so sorry to hear you are really sick.with this nut trust me all of a sudden it will pass. Your immune system is so low that you can contract any tiny germ that's around so be very careful around your cat as none intentionally but they bring allsorts in from outside . I know ive got 4 of them! You will get better this will pass I've seen my daughter go through this it's just a few weeks and you will feel on top of the world. Big hugs xxx

Hi there. Has this treatment made you sick at all as my daughter has had this and week 3 and 4 she was so sick I rushed her to a&e? She is just waiting for her very last blood result . It's fantastic this treatment isn't it. I'm so happy for you and for everyone who gets the chance to have this treatment it's like a miracle cure. Good luck and if it says clear on week 4 you will be clear for good . Can news . Best wishes.... shirl x

Hi girls,

It sounds odd but I hope to be feeling sick when on the treatment rather than sick without it. I am still waiting and could be for however long. Last bloods took 6 wks plus and that's at the hospital. would love to start a little home group where a few of us could be on meds at same time , I have had lots of time to think about it all !

Let's hope it s a good new year for all. just think Shell, you will have finished treatment when I start ☺you're doing so well, hang on, the end will come

Best wishes xxx

Oh my, me too. I finished my treatment 3 days ago and I feel so down.

I keep thinking that I should be on top of the world finishing treatment, and during treatment I felt amazing, but I don't and I just cry all the time.

I hope we both get better soon. I was prepared for this treatment to make me feel rough whilst taking it. So when nothing bad happened I let my guard down.

Finger crossed it won't last very long xx

How are you feeling now? I myself am feeling on top of the world. Found out yesterday that I am Hep c free! This feeling is amazing.

The whole "withdrawal" symptoms from coming off of Sovaldi and Ribiviron have gone too, bonus.

Hope you are feeling the same. X

Thanks, glad you're feeling better too. It was weird how I was told the treatment ccan have quite bad side affects but didn't have any then, boom, they come at you all at once when you're not taking it.

I also have a 3 months post treatment appointment.

Here's to the future x
