oh! and...

it was interesting to talk to my french doctor about achieving svr...
of course he's gone into plastic surgery so isn't completely up on the latest achievements of tx but was so impressed that i'd cleared completely, especially as he's lost a friend to hepC.
but, also interesting is that he'd been a testee for drug trials of interferon when he was a poor med student - and he remembers horridly how sick he was and he never did drug trials after that!

another interesting snippet is that my french doc feels that when he is ill that he is more achey than is normal - and he still blames this on the interferon trials he did years ago.

hmmm...makes sense to me!
i'm alot more achey than i ever was before tx.

Very interesting what kind of people you bump into, isn't it? And the most unlikely ones have similar experiences ...

I had a ultra sound to look at my leg veins. The tech said I had thick blood. Said it was different color then healthy blood on the screen. I looked it up and aches all over was a symptom. Seems nurses would notice when they took my blood but no. It would be interesting to see if others had this post tx. I'm taking aspirin each day and drinking more water, since that is what I read helps thick blood. I'm feeling much better already.
