Caregiver for my husband who was infected with the Hep C virus in 1979 from a blood transfusion. We learned he had ESLD, (Stage 4 Cirrhosis) in December, 2010. He tried triple treatment with Incivik for 5 weeks. Had to stop treatment due to severe anemia. Viral load re
[More]mained "unquantifiable" for 8 months. Had a liver transplant in June, 2012. Virus is now back... as is his cirrhosis. Started Sovaldi plus Ribavirin for 24 weeks on Feb. 13th, as he is Geno 1a and interferon ineligible. Praying for SVR by the fall.

Hi Nan, I agree with you. We are grateful to be here to fight the battle another day too! Keep me posted on your hubby's recovery from transplant and what his docs recommend to fight the virus.
Nan, Wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. I replied to your note to me in your thread about triple tx (back in the thread). So sorry to hear that your husband's viral load has popped back up again. I know that with your support, he'll be able to recover from his transplant and focus on beating Hep C when he's ready.
