Thanks for the kind words. I dont know what to expect. I have the insurance, but what good is it if you cant be seen. I read somewhere that they did a study on coffee and it slows it down from damage 40%. I wonder.
Peace light and love

Hi Lauren,
So, I contacted my doctor and she said oh, they should have contacted you by now. Here is there number. I called the GI and the said their earliest appo. Is in July. Of course I took it but it seems so far away after my diagnosis. I have no real symptoms yet. Just aches in my legs some nights. That seems so far away.
Sincereley,
Curious

No one has contacted me yet. It’s been three weeks. I went back to my Dr. to go over my diagnosis and she said I am otherwise healthy and I could be cured? I worry about that because the cure may be worse than the disease. I just need to know where I stand and that will help most. Thank you so much for reaching out to me. You are appreciated.…

@dedede
You just found out in September? Did you say you were scared about the medicines to be cured? I am on epclusa halfway through and my blood work shows all of over three million I only have 18 left so I’m basically about cured and the side effects are so worth the outcome. I believe that epusa has saved my life .. be encouraged !!

Hi. I know the feeling Sherry. Its places like this that help support this situation. I’m waiting to see the gastronoligist? I wonder if I have to get treatment. I get worried but then again I can accept it so far. I just dont know what to expect, that’s all. They make it so mysterious.
