So I'm one week past treatment, or 1 week post-treatment. How am I feeling? Am I doing a happy dance? Am I back to my old self? Isn't life just - like - completely different in a more awesome way now?
I was feeling at my worst on the last day of treatment; truth be told. I could tell my feeble immune system was fighting something. My intuition was confirmed when I went in for my first post treatment blood draw on Thursday. The nurse called and informed me to take a shot of Neupogen, my neutrophils were 0.4. Okie dokie. Been there done that.
I was 11 days removed from my last interfuron shot and 4 days removed from the last swallow of ribavirin pills. My body is still weary and had no plans of bouncing back just yet. I wasn't expecting to anyway. Hoping, but not expecting. (There's a difference. I just figured that out this past year...)
Good thing I kept Neupogen and Procit on hand. You never know how long it may take to bounce back. The doctor says 3 months. I say one. I'll let you know.
