most part went away. Yes, this is a very good forum for information
and it is very trustworthy. I also hv another question (i always do-
hah) Anyway, what is cholestasis. I saw somewhere that certain drugs
cause this, but what is this??? By the way--update-still going every
week for CBC's, but I get to skip next week as my wbc r not up to
3.6. Of course, I ws on a reduced dose for a month and i did take a
full dose this past week and cd not tell much difference in the way I
felt. My next pick up of peg will be my last but hv had no viral load
as of it---I am sure tht will be a nail biting dy. If I am not @ 0
what hv I accomplished??? Does that mean failure??? I guess it does
and where do u start after that. Believe me, I am tring and praying
to think positive, but u know it is in the back of my head all the
time. Enzymes are way down so I feel very good about that. They could
still be up there, but they hv come down to way normal. THANK GOD!

Wow! There's SO much valuable information in all of the messages!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post everything.
Yesterday I was reading about "itching." Gary (my hubby) gets this
rash every so often on his upper arm or on his back. It almost looks
like someone scratched him as opposed to a circular rash of some
type. It really itches him for about a day or two and then gradually
Anyone else here have that? What do you do for it?

This is just my opinion, but I think that since you have cirrhosis
you should stay on the medications longer - for a year if possible.
That gives you a better chance of a sustained response and a chance
for your liver to do some healing. Of course, if your doctor won't
agree, there is not much you can do, but I'd really try talking to
him about staying on longer. If you have not cleared the virus, NO,
it is not a complete waste. You have still given your liver a break,
and often treatment will slow or stop progression of the disease.
