Posttreatment Questions Re: Rebetron.
Hello all, Have just returned from some R&R and am having a few problems with mt health at present; am hoping that thaneby can help with these post treatment blues.
First week of post tratment went well, mentally I felt on top of it and had a little more energy than usual. Second week experienced a Gout attack that was more severe than any I'd had before, the duration of which, unlike others that last for between 24 to 48 hours, has gone on now for 3 weeks! I realise that if you're susseptible to Gout then the rebetron treatment can bring about an attack. Have had them off and on during treatment but have been able to get over them within a few days; not the case now.
Have been in touch with my GP and a little with my Liver Guy, they seem to think that I've just got to tuff it out. Am taking Indomythecin as an anti-inflammatory, and while most days it keeps it in check, it just won't go away! Any ideas?
Had Uric Acid test done and am well within nomal range.AST is 21, ref range 12-45. ALT tho is down around14, ref range 21-72. Hem. etc is on the way back up and energy level isn't bad, tho because of the Gout in Big Toe area, walking and biking have just about come to a standstill. Also severe Migrains have acompanied the Gout stuff; do you know of any relationship between the two?
Anyhow thanks for any info. you may be able to supply.
