    Hang in there FG, med tech is amazing these days, and you're certainly not giving up.
    I'll second the suggestion for CBD or other products in that family if you're appetite and mood could use a boost.

    Don't let the next band idea go, I like your setlist!

    Keep your chin up, FG, I’m rooting for you to play that new set.

    Best wishes for a speedy return to normal.
    Health issues can derail the best laid plans for sure.
    Worst when you're feeling good, moving forward, and--whammo!
    Hang in there-it will get better.
    TDPRI needs you.

    Hang in there gal.

    Did the old interferon/ribavirin drill for 10 months in 2006 to no avail - diagnosis - incurable. Went steadily downhill in spite of doing my best to stay "positive" :).

    Last year, they put Mavyret on the market. Three months of Mavyret did the trick - diagnosis - undetectable.

    Had to get my old gall bladder yanked out two weeks ago yesterday. Because of it's close proximity to the liver, my liver still feels like somebody was trying to hit home runs with it :).

    I wouldn't wish me on anyone ;), but I might be living proof that there is hope for all of us.

    Take care of yourself, please.





    Best Regards,
    Geo.

    I saw what ya did there Larry...
    And I've read five pages of affection & recognition how we value FG on this forum.

    I liked my drink too, then learned how it was not a helpful mix w/ other treatment meds, so I set it aside, preferring to get better.

    Get better by understanding what the professionals are trying to do, and be on their team - really, They're in a better position to make specific recommendations than anybody here. Remember, we can't even come to a clear decision on straight or curly cords...

    FenderGyrl, I will send all good vibes your way.
    I'm rather old and have had very few health issues, so I can really only imagine what you are going through, but I will say this:
    I like the way you envision songs as a means of personal self expression and are not bound by the traditional thought line. (I do 'It's A Heartache' the way I imagine Dwight Yoakum might, if he were a baritone) We need more like you.
    Please get better soon.

    Positive thoughts and warm Caribbean mojo headed your way.
    Stay positive, stay strong, and stay focused
    I, too, want to hear your play list(s)

    Get well soon FG... Research the medical benefits of a whole food plant based diet/lifestyle... food is a much better medicine and has done wonders for me.

    I fractured my spine 18 years ago & the healing process took 3 years before I could do anything, much less pick up a guitar & gig with it. I sincerely hope your treatment gets straightened out, and if it involves pain killers, please please please be careful. The opioid epidemic is real, and has claimed enough people already.

    Best wishes FG.
    You're knowledge of the old japanese guitars, and positive energys make you one of my favorite posters.
    Stay strong.

    Hey, FenderGyrl, thanks for sharing. Really. I feel your pain.

    I don't know where your faith is, FenderGyrl, but I can tell you, with great certainty, that all things are possible with God! Place your trust in Him, Jehovah-Rophe, the One who heals!

    All things are possible with God!

    Be blessed, FenderGyrl. :)

    Hey FG, praying for you, please keep forging ahead! You need to go check out your legacy post! Things that make you smile, that thread was a God send! Always, always makes me feel better about anything, and I thank you for it!
