    Just wondering if you have had any improvement in your symptoms since adding Valcyte to your antiviral treatment?

    I haven't seen significant improvement with the Famvir/Valcyte combo :-(.

    @seansee- not trying to sound sexist or anything but truly wondering if there isn't something in the male vs female immune system that makes it more likely for males to have a better outcome with this? I remember watching a video by, I think Dr Broderick, who was describing the differences between the two and how vastly more complicated the female immune system was to chart. Obviously that's painting with a broad brush as I can think of several females who've gotten improvements with antivirals and several males who haven't, but in general, it seems like the trend has been along those lines. Just a thought.....
