TODAY I AM ONE MY FIRST DAY OF INCIVEK FREEDOM!
six years ago i was on just iterf. and riba. and achieved non detectable status. but was rremoved because i was deemed too depressed to continue. this time around i am taking the triple cocktail which includes the telaprevir (incivek). and i achieved virus negative status at 4 weeks. however now i am at 10 weeks and the incivek rash has turned to stage 2 and getting worse. so the decision was made to remove me from the telaprevir. so i am headed for 36 more weeks of riavirin and interf. shots. but NO MORE INCIVEK!!!! to all of you out there stil on the trip. meds hang on. the feeeling of that milestone put me on a new level of determination to beat this thing. this is my third time around for this war on my liver. and i am about to be liberated. please don't dispair, it is your life on the line, so fight for your freedom to live.
