HCV-RNA

hi guys , i was diagnosed with HCV in 2004 and i was treated with PEG-INTRON and Ribavirin for six months. at the end of treatment my HCV-RNA was negative and ALT was normal, then after 14 months( after 1 year and two months) i was again tested and HCV-RNA was still negative with normal ALT. at that time my doctor told me that onwards you should not have any problem related to HCV in your entire life. since then i have been checking my ALT and CBC and ultrasound after every six months , they are almost normal....... sometimes my ALT goes little bit high , but that is probably i take antibiotics for certain infections. then again in the next test my ALT goes normal.  what do you think should i be tested again for HCV-RNA or PCR for my viral load ? because i had two PCRs negative fours years back when i completed my PEG-INTRON combination therapy.
