so i saw hepatologist yesterday - was scheduled to start incivek treatment - long story short - he said he has had to hospitalize several cirrhotic incivek patients recently - since im in this subgroup he expressed great concern about me starting - my gut said so what - but my head said wait - he also echoed dr palmers statement about all oral combos 3 yrs down the road - now im back in the holding pattern hoping i have enough gas - lol - he mentioned a trial but again i would be excluded - i dont get it - im in a category that needs it most - oh well maybe later - i still have the option of triple with incivek or victrelis if need be till then
