Hi Glo and everyone

So happy to hear trt is going well for you Glo. 3 weeks to my half way mark. This treatment has knocked me on my behind starting with the rash that continues to flare and leaves huge brown spots where it heals. Bio Aid seems to help reduce the color of the healed sores. My biggest problem has been fatigue and a falling Hemoglobin. My last lab tests came back last Thursday and it had nosedived to 74 so the Doc finally put me on eprex. Thank heaven my extended health pays for it as it is the same cost as the pegatron. I have been off work since May and really want to get back. I bought a wig today and my hair has really thinned and I found an actual bald spot on the crown yesterday. Through all of the issues I have had with treatment I remain positive and I thank God that I am part of the 48% of people with genotype 1 who are responders.

For those of you who are just starting or contemplating it....go for it! A year max out of your life that could possibly add years or at the very least make the rest of your life easier is worth any big or small side effect.

:wave: Take care all
