My Doctor Called Today

It is really awesome when the doctor that is treating you, gives you a personal phone call to check in on how the couple days of therapy are going. She was delighted to hear that the medication isn't showing any signs of "major" side effects in the first 48 hours, but the next week, as the drug becomes accustomed to my system, will indicate any significant issues (if any). I get a basic CBC lab drawn on February 3rd, and follow up with my doctor on February 11th to monitor progress. My doctor told me at week 4, she will have me do labs again to get a viral load assay drawn to see how the new drug is reacting to the virus. With God by my side every step, a little luck and confidence, I feel the labs will be positive. Just for the record, day two, and I feel great! Not even a headache, chills, diarrhea or flu like symptoms. Could this therapy really be this good?! Time will tell...


  1. Psyched to hear that you are feeling great on day 2! Will keep praying for you Joe! :-)
