I have been on Valcyte for a week and so far so good. I have had no side-effects whatsoever from the medication so far. I did go for my first weekly blood work yesterday and just got a call from my doctor's office asking if I was having abdominal pains because my Lipase level is high. My GP had checked off a lot of tests and I'm pretty sure I've never had this test done before so maybe it's not related to the Valcyte. Like usual I am resting a lot and being on disability will allow me to not over do it during this treatment.
