A tough 48 weeks

Postby Paul B » Mon Jun 16, 2014 1:08 pm

Interferon, Ribavirin, Victrellis. Started one week ago.
Went for my first ride today, 15kms... the drop in my red blood cell count rendered me totally out of breath, but still, nice to be out there. Massive drop from my 300km weekly average :?

Hopefully after the 4 week lead in period my numbers will be up and the Docs will give me the OK to continue treatment for the full 48 weeks.

Best of luck to you Paul B.

Go easy on yourself and do what you can even if some days it's only getting out to feel the sun on your face. If possible try to have a laugh about it and keep in mind it ain't for ever. It can be a mixed bag but worth the effort and it gradually gets easier with time.

Regards,
Andy

A rough break. Hopefully the time passes quickly and you still manage to catch plenty of time in the sun.
