Hi there! I don't know where to turn. I have been on the Pridgen protocol for over a month and don't feel any difference for better or worse. I know there are others on this as well but I have only seen a rare comment about someone writing much about it. If they say it worked and someone asks a follow up question I never see a response. Is there somewhere we (who are on the protocol) can get together online and swap notes. Since our doctors are only giving us what Dr. Pridgen has told them to give they really can't answer questions such as at what point did you start feeling better etc... I wish I knew more of what to expect. I know if this worked for me I would be all over the place trying to help my fellow sufferer so I'm a little concerned . ***** Saint, I just saw your note about Valcyte. I'm actually really confused because although I know there is at least one back up and from what my doctor said it sounds like two back ups the protocol that I'm on that is suppose to be the one that is getting the best results does not call for Valcyte. In fact, I have even been in touch with someone very close to Dr. Pridgen who knows the protocol well and she never mentioned valcyte. I was told and am on Celebrex and Famvir.
