As you know, everyone has a very different reaction to Interferon. My husband is currently in his third month of self injections, and is handling this treatment very well. He also tolerated his high dose month with few side effects, he did feel sick the first night (Chills, slight fever) but that was the only night he felt that way. He has never missed work, even during the high dose phase. His white counts have decreased during treatment, but his liver function tests have been fine and his blood work results have never required that he delay treatment. Phil does get tired and he did lose some weight as his appetite did change, but in general he is doing much better than we expected. We hope and pray everyday that this treatment is boosting his immune system and killing those cancer cells.
Keep focused and listen to your body!! Resting whenever you can is so important! You and everyone undergoing treatment to fight this disease are in our thoughts and prayers!! Valerie (Phil's wife)
