Took a little over 2 yrs. to show "0" on my tests. Still in remission. Fellow patients when I was at the VA out of 6 of us....4 quit due to the side effects. Hated to see that, but I was in it for myself, not them. Mind over matter and I ain't got much mind left.

Hey Ted! I am on Pegasys,and Ribuvirin.I just got back from the Gainsville VA.They wanted to start me onProcrit.I said "NO" ,I wanted to wait for another lab result before taking a cancer causing agent.Maybe can reduce Ribuvirin to stimulate blood cells.Tomorrow take shot 14 of 26.Will keep you updated as the results come in .Thanks!! Semper Fi,L/CPL Whitaker

Prayers to you Brother. I had such a horrible experience with shot number 1 that I stopped altogether. But there are other ways. I have not had a problem with my liver in nine years - I met a doctor who uses Vitamin C in massive doses to fight infections like this, and worked for me very well. Of course, prayers are the best answer in my humble opinion. I have you on my prayer list. Semper Fi, Tom

Thanks Tom,Prayer is always the strongest medicine.Things have a way of taking the right course when prayer is on your side. I,m sure every thing will be alright just having rough times ,but they too will pass. Thanks again. Semper Fi!!!!!! L/Cpl Whitaker

Hey Hitman,I don,t want to do the procrit or thrneupogen,unless absolutly nessary.Doc says she recomends it but I want to wait for one more blood test.I am taking more meds now than my Mom and Dad together,and they are in there mid 80,s.If the next lab results still show a drop I,ll do it .I,m praying for the best.Thanks,L/CPL Whitaker

The VVA passed my resolution that the VA should test veterans for HCV.
This is a small step but a step none the less.
We need to plug away and sooner or later all or our brothers in arms will get the help they need.
