If you're using a VPN (virtual private network) they will alter your location. You would know if you're using one though. Some are free and others are fee based. They send your internet traffic to a different server location. It provides a little bit more anonymity and security while you're using the internet. You can only select specific locations utilizing the fee based VPN's. Free offerings generally provide an IP from the country you're located in. That has been my experience with them. I use a free one anytime I use public wifi.

Hi Joshua,

Please tell us a bit more about yourself. I notice your profile mentions you're in Orlando, Florida, but your IP originates in India. Did you move since registering?

The quick answer to your question regarding retreatment is yes, you can retreat after failing any medication protocol. If you are in New Delhi, you are in a location with all of the new generic medications. Please contact your physician for advice on what's the best course of treatment. Good luck.

If you are needing help, you'll have to provide us with some history. Have a nice day...

What treatment did you do before?

There are many members here who tried the old treatment (interferon/ribavirin) but it failed to cure them that have successfully re-treated with the new meds.

My treatment before did not cure me. I want to give it a new try. I want to fight this. Am I eligible to be treated again and start a new life?
