Illness following Hep C, Geno 1 treatment 7yr ago
In 2006 I completed 40/48 week treatment for Hep C. Geno 1. I had begun to suffer extreme anemia. It has been 7 years and have been diagnosed with a critically low white cell count and enlarged spleen. What follow up had been conducted concerning chronic illnesses following treatment?  I am 58 year old female and was treated at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX. I am currently seeing an oncologist for the condition. Is this common  following Hep C treatment?

It is difficult to follow the sequence of events can you please clarify.

Did you achieve SVR in 2006?
When did you develop anemia?
When where you diagnosed with low white blood cells? Recently?
When where you diagnosed with an enlarged liver? Recently?
Why are you seeing an oncologist? What type of cancer have you been diagnosed with?

While I have not heard of this for HCV follow up, it could be because your blood is not within normal range.  I was diagnosed with HCV by a hemotologist/oncologist because my platelets were so low I was sent to him.
Good luck

I received treatment 2006 for hep c.  I developed anemia 40 weeks into the treatment, receiving 7 pints of blood over two months.  Low white cell count has been tracked back 20 months found to be low. I have not been diagnosed with an enlarged liver but the spleen. I am seeing an oncologist to rule out leukemia. She is also a hematologist. A bone marrow biopsy is scheduled. She is not ruling out the treatment was the cause of the damaged spleen. Thanks you for your post
