ON this continuous pump interferon... I had IV interferon high dose for a
month, every weekday, then high dose interferon for a year, 3 shots a week,
(for the malignant melanoma) and still, I have my dratted Hep C. And that's
AFTER the 48 week treatment for hep C, where I did ribavirin (6 pills a day)
+ Interferon shots every other day, not just 3 days a week.
Now if that isn't a stubborn virus, I dunno what is!

because of the type of cancer).
So I just wanted to clarify, when I say I will not do the standard meds for
treatment again, yall know why.
