the treatment

I'm scheduled to take the "next" new cure next spring, but, I'm not doing it.

Dear Lloyd
My name is John and I'm a 61 yr old male. I contracted Hep c from a transfusion when I was 17 yrs old. About fifteen years ago the disease started attacking my liver. I'm stage 4 cirrhosis and pretty sick. I've taken the "cure" twice now and have been a non-responder. Last summer I took the Insivic cocktail and after 10 weeks into the specified twelve week period I broke out into a rash that nearly killed me. I'm just now after a year feeling more normal, except for the pain and discomfort. I'm scheduled to take the "next" new cure next spring, but, I'm not doing it. I will never again take Interferon or any other chemical. I'm really angry about American medicine and the lack of common sense and compassion.

At first glance this looked like an anti-stigma message. Forcing people living with blood borne viruses to use their own crockery is an extremely common form of discrimination linked to HIV and viral hepatitis stigmas.

Hepatitis C Treatment May Cause Death

Considered the drug of choice for hepatitis C and chronic liver disease, interferon may cause side effects and even death when used a second time, according to a new review.

Dead On Whacko

Subject: Re: [Contact Lloyd] INF hastens liver damage in non responders

You're welcome.  I have participated on some forums wherein you are variously referred to as "dead on" or "whacko trying to sell something."  :-)   It is amazing the degree of fear that is raised about true disease, and how trusting and accepting people are of the drugs. 

I ended interferon in 12/08.  My thyroid is still fried, I have psoriasis still and I have arthritis and some degree of cognitive impairment, my liver damage rapidly accelerated to cirrhosis during and immediately after treatment.  I am, however, feeling far far better than I was.  I cannot tell you what a horrible, lonely terrifying experience it was.  Somebody needs to be in jail. 

You have a number of times responded kindly to my inquiries. I thank you very much for doing so.  I occasionally have sent you stuff like the below and will likely continue to do so. 

Stay well!
Yours,
Jeff

Nonresponders to Interferon-based Treatment of HCV Exhibit an Increased Long-Term Hazard of Cirrhosis Compared to Never Treated

The long-term consequences of failed interferon-alpha based hepatitis C treatment on liver morbidity and survival have not been fully explored. We performed retrospective analyses to assess long-term clinical outcomes among treated and untreated patients with hepatitis C virus in two independent cohorts from a United States Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a University Teaching Hospital. Eligible patients underwent liver biopsy during consideration for interferon-alpha based treatment between 1992 and 2007.

I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain

from Barbara via Ask Lloyd
I was diagnosed with Hep C in 2006, did the treatment of Ribavirin and strongest dose of Interferon, I have cleared the virus, although since the treatment I have extreme muscle pain and some joint pain, I tried for a few years to continue to work, but am unable to, due to pain, my memory is terrible, I take my pain meds and fall asleep in the office. I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain, xrays, blood work cannot show my pain level. Do you know of anyone that has been able to get disability from this most horrible problem. I am not the person I used to be.... I was always the most active person, and now my life is completely different.
