It's VERY good you got the antibiotics Harry, it really does not matter that you are only freshly finished treatment, and are now having to take a round of antibiotics, it will not hinder your hepc cure. It's just too bad you had to have a chest bad enough to warrant the antibiotics. The antibiotics are a good and necessary thing, your doc would not have given them to you if it was not justified/needed. The antibiotics should be helping you to attain a generally increased healthier state (by killing off this chest infection) - NOT having a chest infection is a VERY good thing, and better for your recovery from the hepc therapy. I am glad your chest is feeling a wee bit better. Hopefully we will trounce that nasty chest infection easily, you will keep recouping and recovering from your hepc therapy, and get healthier and healthier. Some of us have experienced these very unfortunate flu's, colds, infections, and other maladies post tx, but fingers crossed, you will just keep getting better from this bad chest and get to feeling better and better as time goes on.

Keep drinking lots of water, and treating yourself very well. A little fresh air, some good food, TLC.

How's the heat?

How are those ankles now that you are on those water pills?†

Did you ever tell us what GT you were? C.†

iris,† i had to laugh at your foot doc asking about your toe like that. do you have to go to emergency if you do actually break something or get seriously ill?

i skipped my allergy pill today so i didn't have to feel so wound up but will be taking it on and off thru mid january

i'm so hoping we all sickies and ziggy flow into the new year in a more satisfactory condition: smile:

Hey, Tig. What do we have to do? It's time for the ER. Medicare will cover that? †No matter, this is what we call an emergency.

What? Alergic to pine trees? You get the same problem with fresh cut lumber and burning the logs? What a bummer. Camping amongst the pines must be a no no then for you Tig,† ...crikie.That's sad.

Ok one of ny non hcv things is a toe that i thought was broke last year, I finally got my appt with a podiatrist today they dropped the ball on me and it took a freaking year for this approval† and he's like...How's your pain?? Well last year I wanted to cut my toe off it hurt so bad, now it's† knumb...ooops numb. It doesn't hurt now but its got all deformed, he says† ...huh, don't think the two are related, we'll see ya in 4 weeks. CRIKIE, had to sign a relase for the X ray I had on it back in April.†blankstare

Okay, since this is our new section to voice personal OTHCV illness, let me be first to say, this crap of mine ainít getting any better. If I donít see marked improvement by Friday, theyíre bringing me back in for more tests and different ABís. This is a harsh form of whatever it is. I bought a pulse oximeter to watch my oxygen level and I canít get it above 90. The bronchospasms are so frequent, even the codeine syrup is ineffective. Tonight will be day 3 on the AB, so maybe itís just taking a little longer. Letís hope anyway!†

Hopefully youíre not in a perpetual blooming season where you are, 5. I ended up in the hospital for weeks once with a severe reaction to pine pollen. I lived in the CA Bay Area and my apartment was nestled in a clump of tall pines. They about killed me! Havenít had trouble like that again, thank God! Good luck beating that next round of sinus challenges...†

This is a very good idea! I was thinking the same thing. Poor 5 and Irisís threads have been taken over by OTHCV (Other than HCV) issues lately. If you would like, put it in the General section, it might get more visibility.†

Hi Gang,

I thought I would start a new thread for health updates. †We have a lot of posts here about flu, bronchitis, and other ailments that plague us. †How lovely to have the care we feel for one another. †I truly appreciate the support and suggestions.

But, I can't tell the topics from the treatment titles anymore. †

Just a suggestion. If you have another preference, go with it.

Cheddy

BE WELL, GOOD FRIENDS!!!!!!!!
