I'm undetected!

Just found out this morning- as of yesterday, my doctor got results from the drug trial i've been on, and he called me first thing today.  Pharmasset polymerase inhibitor PSI 7977 in conjunction w/pegasys and ribavirin, today is week 13- i started treatment on Nov 9th, and my viral load was 4.9 million copies.  On day 3 it had gone down to 4,700.  As of week 4 and ongoing, the virus is undetectable!  woo-hoo!  yayyy!!!  :)

I will continue with the peg/riba to week 24 (end of April.)  i'm so psyched!!

Congratulations on the great news. We seem to be having a hcv treatment renaissance. There's great hope for those who are still healthy enough to treat.

Good luck and on to svr,

Hooray for you!!! Hearing things like that gives hope to some thats new to this world! And with that said, tha im new, is that new drugs that you treated with and you did a drug trial, so thats new stuff right? And if so, thank you for being one of the ones who will try things to help make things better. And to everyone, im going to a primary doctor in a lil bit and ill find out what my cholesterol is and maybe some other things about my blood work. Im gonna let her know that ive was positive for antibodies so maybe my doctor will do another test. I dont know if primary doctors do such test, probaly not, they just do the antibody and then refer you if positive so still may have to wait for that information taht im dying to get. Thanks to everyone!!
