Post Transplant Triple TX reporting in :)
I just want to share what results my husband has had thus far since starting the triple tx of Incevik, riba and inteferon.
Normally they don't do an RNA until about week 4 after starting the incevik but a new doctor ordered one and He was NEGATIVE....ZERO viral load after only 8 days!   He is doing so well the doctor's said they are "amazed".   Kurt has had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at him over the past 20 years and has been a non responder each time.  They almost didn't let him try this treatment because of that.  But God!   They are continuing him on the protocol until further notice.   He has started Week 6 and so far so good on all other levels.  His sx are fatique, body aches and at first depression and anxiety.  He no longer takes anti-depressants and is not working so he can rest as much as needed during this treatment.  I have gained so much insight from reading your posts and want to encourage others with our story.  God bless!
