I had to use another injection of Procrit for 3 months which builds red blood cells. But you will never be normal all through treatment. It recovers quickly when you end... probably about a month?View Thread
I worked until the final 3 months; I did miss days here and there all during treatment but expect the last quarter to be the worst. At least that is how it was for me. And yes, you get the side effects as soon as you start. But it is worth it as my doctor said "we are curing a lot of people with this (triple therapy). I go for my blood tests this week, 4 months after treatment, to see if its still cleared! Good luck to you.View Thread
