Post S/O treatment
« on: October 07, 2014, 08:55:27 pm »
My last day of treatment was last Thursday. Went Monday for cbc, cmp, and viral load. Nurse called me today and said enzymes slightly elevated and I'm still anemic, but nothing to be concerned about. Waiting for Viral Load results now.
I have had some joint and muscle pain that started 6 weeks into my treatment, still having those symptoms. Had some swelling again in my left ankle Saturday, after a 7 hr trip where I was sitting in one spot. The swelling was gone the next morning. Is this muscle/joint pain and swelling due to the meds or hep c? I never had these symptoms until 6 weeks into my treatment.
Thanks for any replies!

Perhaps related, although sounds like they were more related to the sitting for 7 hrs.
