First Step Toward the Cure!
So this morning after breakfast it was two of 200mg ribavirin. My first injection was at 1130 this morning. Injection site little sore but, I’m pretty wimpy when it comes to needles. At suppertime it was three of 200 mg ribavirin.
Little bit of a headache around 4 hours after the injection but I was told to take care of it right away so it was some advil for that and an hour later seems to be gone.
Took two advil about 5 minutes before the injection and this is the recommended thing.
Just about bedtime now and I don’t feel any different than I did yesterday. Maybe tomorrow will bring more, don’t know. Love not knowing. LOL
I was told I have Genotype 2 with a viral load of 1.24 e4. Not sure what this means but I know it needs to go down. Every 4 weeks I will be getting the viral load blood test at the hospital. Will find out then if there has been a decrease. I was also told there is an 80 % chance of ridding myself of the virus to start and, if there is a reduction in the viral load after 30 days, there is a 90 % success rate.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
