I am on week 43 of 48. The Dr said everything is going great. There have been a few difficult days and some difficult side effects but it has not been unbearable. I read volumes of material after my diagnosis and felt the treatment and the disease were equally bad. Try hard to keep a Positive Mental Attitude and say your prayers every day. I just wanted you to know that it can be done with a minimum of disruption in your life. There still will be a lab check 6 months after this is over and I hope I am through, but if it isn't , I will do it again.

Great news! I like hearing from those who can see that light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm presently a long way from there, with my last dose falling sometime in Sep. But the 3 drug combo is bearable and I take pleasure in the little things in life.

Keep that Positive attitude about you. It's something that help sthe rest of think, "I can do it too."
