Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season! Hubby's most recent follow up with hepa was good (ultrasound, lab work, and check up) on 12/5/13. Still well compensated, so sign of cancer. Next follow up is in June.
How are you Gene?
Hi Gene, hubby's hepa thinks that the new treatment for G1s will be a 12 wk course of sofosbuvir, ribavirin, an interferon, and she hopes it will be approved by October and available for docs to prescribe by December. I hope she's right. You and my hubby should be first in line! :)
