Not much is happening. Ever since my med's got changed I have been doing better. The cramps are still noticeable, but they have subsided somewhat. I feel good in general though, if you don't count all the bathroom trips and the getting tired. Even the tiredness is a little better. It usually catches up to me over the weekend.
The one thing that hasn't changed is my breathing. It takes very little to lose my breath. I walked about a block the other day and I was huffing and puffing. I still don't understand what is causing this and I don't understand why I keep losing my voice while I'm talking. It frustrates me that my doctors don't know why. It seems like at least one of the doctors would be familiar with such a symptom as this. Maybe it's time I see my family doctor and see what he has to say.
I am also going to start back on the pegylated interferon and ribavirin program that I did a few years ago. I am kind of anxious and nervous, but mostly I would just like to get started on it. The doctors are working on new protocols for the Hep-C treatment and then they will schedule an appointment for me.
That is all.
