posted a few months ago about how i started my therapy. and then again about how i was told i tested virus negative after only 4 weks. my md said it was a very good sign. then in feb i posted about my being incivek free. i was supposed to be on the regemine for 48 weeks, however just a week ago i was told that the devistation to my body by the drugs ribavirin and pega inter. is so bad that if i stay on them another month i could very well be dead. so, after 25 weeks i am kicked off the program. not knowing if i bfeat the big C or not. the good news is ,that after only 2 days i sleep at night and my energy levels have risen to new heights that i haven't felt for over 5 months. i am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. good luck to all of you still pilling and injecting, i hope you make it.------63
