Congratulations Paleface! Awesome! Such a great thing to get a "do over" and now you have a clean, fresh start. Those of us that have lived with this for so long have adapted healthier life styles trying to help our livers and now hopefully it will regenerate and we can all feel fabulous! I am so happy for you! Namaste.

That is fantastic! Hearing that someone who is type 1a and has some  liver damage and failed peg+rib at about the same time I did now clears with only 12 weeks of pills is beautiful.

Your news made my day!

look out rainbow trout here I come to get you!!!!!!!! I am gonna go camp out fishing on a remote lake and ignore my stupid doubts for a change!
