About Me: Male, 60, San Francisco, CA, member since Mar 2008
I was exposed to HCV & HBC about 40 years ago. In May 2007 found I had a low platelet count. First time ever my blood levels were abnormal. Biopsy said I have cirrhosis. Throw in portal hypertension and mild varices while your at it. ;-)
IL28B - C/C
Treatment: Started PEG/Copeg 2/2008.
VL bx = 2,600,000.
Week 4 = 700,000
Week 8 = 370,000
Week 12 = 341,000!
Call me Mr. NR "null responder"!!!
1 log = 260,000 (by week 12)
2 log = 26,000
Platelet count dropped to under 20,000 by week 12.
Luckily I have great doctors who will work with me to find the best future options for me as I try to stop the progression of my liver disease.
