got the call today, hepc got its head smoked. still 8 weeks of treatment left but this is nothing compared to the beatdowns ive had in the past on failed treatments. I hope to be jamming on the trike at 75 and still making people cringe -- it could happen.
also got my electronic entry key to access ednas apt today. ednas doc ordered the " fob " so im on this care team in a most official , unofficial capacity..
my pc wiped out this evening and all my past product photos were lost in rebooting. meh.. im building more product, screw the past..
after this hepc victory you couldn't excite me with a taser. totally at peace..

thanks to the veterans administration and gilead pharmaceutical..

That is wonderful! I have a younger sibling who years ago had to go the Interfuron route, twice. From what she said, it was rough stuff. Again, congratulations ...:)

ive a feeling this technology is only the beginning , pam. I believe the meds are called inhibitors. they stop virus reproduction. the riba can kill it but not as fast as it reproduces.
still, und in two weeks is astounding..

I wasn't surprised Jeanette. my muscles have been getting o2 and coming out of the skin for two weeks now. I was jumping up and down waiting on the fresh semi load of stone to arrive. it arrived last week and ive done burned up half of it .

Congratulations Bob!!!! That is a HUGE wipe-out!! They never even used to test the viral load for months into the treatment!! They say the virus can't be reborn? Not sure where I heard that from.... I think I will take a trip to their website :)

Awesome!!

I've learned something new from some of your previous post. I wasn't aware that there is a medicine superior to Interferon used for treatment of HepC.
Thank you for sharing and congratulations on your success, Captain!

P.S. I had a false positive on a Hep C test when I donated blood. So I had to have a much more sensitive test which was negative. But I can never donate blood again, which is a bummer, because I'm O neg, the "universal donor". I had gotten two hepatitis vaccine shots as an employee of a hospital and I think that's what triggered my false positive.

I thought you meant your computer. Glad you are well and maybe that virus went from you to your PC. Ah, well...
