Lillian .... Michael has made it 5 weeks now on the Rebetrol / Inferon combo. He is still working, but really really tired, headaches, achy ... kind of like the flu. Lots of naps & sleeps alot. Perhaps if he drank even a portion of liquid that he is supposed to it would help? He is to have 3 liters of water & clear liquid / day, and an extra cup for every cup of coffee he drinks. Well, he drinks a pot of coffee and maybe (and that is stretching it really far) a litre of water / juice. I feel bad for him, but if we don't help ourselves ...... ya know how that goes. If I go beat my head against the wall & get a headache it anyone gonna feel bad for me ? I think not !
I have hit past my 6 weeks and the headaches (even without hitting the wall) have been right on schedule. Sometimes they really knock me for a loop, but I just consider it a good sign that the tumors are shrinking, right ? They seem to be lessening a little. My Christmas wish is for a clear MRI in January, my hair to start growing back & the headaches to go away ! Try to stuff that one in the stocking ! LOL
