back to the dr.
« on: July 07, 2014, 03:05:40 pm »
Hi Mr. Kim here.
I am going back to see the dr. this week. It's been 3 weeks since I started taking the meds, simeprevir and sofosbuvir. I was wondering can anyone tell me what to expect from him?
Mr. Kim

Hi Lucinda.
I thought this visit was going to important. It was nothing more than a pep talk. I have a nasty rash on both of my forearms from being out in the sun to long. I got some really expensive cream to put on them and it helps some but I would tell others on the meds I take just to stay out of the sun.
