Hepatitis

Pamela Anderson: 'I'M Going to Cure My Hepatitis C'

Hi. I am logging on to tell anyone who is still here that I am finally cured. Got enrolled in a study for a new Gilead two drug combination pill. Took one pill a day for twelve weeks. No interferon. No ribavirin. No side effects. One bottle of pills did what a suitcase full of interferon, ribavirin, Telaprevir, and a whole boatload of possibly deadly side effect did not do. So, again...I am cured. Do not take interferon, or ribavirin. MY opinion only.  (Sep 16, 2013 | post #91)

I am not a doomer. I am on your side in this debate. The doomers are misinformed, misguided and/or idiots.  (Jun 30, 2012 | post #31027)

After a five year break, I am back on Topix, so be forewarned. Mememine69...you might possibly be the most patient human being in history, to still be chiding these guys after all this time. All I can say is...Dang!  (Jun 17, 2012 | post #30834)

Hepatitis

Pamela Anderson: 'I'M Going to Cure My Hepatitis C'

I have not posted here for some time, and wanted to share my experience with all who are interested. I continued to take the Interferon and Ribovirin for the full 72 weeks, and it was very difficult. I wound up on thyroid treatment-apparent ly the interferon taosted my thyroid gland. No big deal, it is one little pill a day-$10 for three months worth from Walmart. My virus level became undetectable shortly after my last post here, and remained so until summer of 2009, about week 67. I had to dose reduce the ribo because of severe hemolytic anemia, and apparently this allowed the virus to reemerge. I experienced some harsh side effects, and I think many of them were a result of poor quality sleep. lack of good sleep may be the cause of many,perhaps most of the other psychological effects-mood swings, depression, etc. and much of the fatigue and weariness. it got to the point that i coulkd not stay awake for a whole workday. I refused to take any of the drugs which the doctors recomended to help with this, but eventually gave in and agreed to try Provigil. It helped tremendously, and I was once again able to work a full day with no problem. But now i could not sleep at night-it was worse than before. So I agreed to try Ambien. It really worked like a charm. I was able to get a good nights sleep for the first time in many months, and woke up fresh. These two drugs helped me tolerate the treatment better than I ever had been able to do before. It has now been almost a year since I discontinued treatment, and I feel really strong and healthy, despite still having the virus. Three rounds of Interferon and Ribovirin since 2003-once for 48 weeks, once for 24 weeks(with teleprevir but no ribo), and then 72 weeks with Debio 025 for the first month, means I have been on that stuff for three years out of the past seven. I believe that this allowed my liver to regenerate itself, because even though the virus reamins, it was held in abeyance and this allowed my body to restore itself. Remember the liver has the ability to completely regenerate itself-in this way it is different from almost any other organ in your body. I am more hopeful than ever about the chances for a cure despite my lack of success thus far. The new treatments and knowledge gained in the past few years will allow doctors to do genetic tests to determine who will benefit most from a given treatment. I wish all of you courage, wisdom and strength, and that you may face your challenges with a brave heart and an educated mind. Keep the faith. I love you all. -Menicholas  (Sep 4, 2010 | post #79)

There's probably no God

Now you listen here, youz! My father was at the Apalachin Meeting, and I personally knew Joe the Barber. The entire Commission decided right then and there that there would never be no more Capo di Tutti Capi,although Carlo did make a good case for himself, so youz is just a stinkin' fake! And you broke the Omerta, you rat bast*rd!  (Jun 26, 2009 | post #3167)

Thats a good question, and I see your point.In fact,I am not angry at lawyers. I suppose I do have a snotty sense of humor sometimes, and I am a rather snide and smug person deep down inside I have noticed that these message boards tend to bring out the worst in some people,and I will try to do better in the future. I have been unwell for some time, and I take this medicine which makes me feel sick and prevents a good nights sleep, but thats no excuse for being a jerk. I regret doing so, and I apologize. Lately I have been criticized for this name I have been using, and the fact is I made it up the first time I ever posted here, during a thread about some crime spree in New York. I just never got around to changing it,and I dont even rememer what the joke was... Anyway, in the spirit of turning over a new leaf and starting fresh, I will now be-  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #256)
