Hi ya'll,

I was so happy that i actually forgot to umm , ask him how much better my odds are now at this point compared to when i was UND at 12 weeks. CAN ANY ONE ANSWER THIS FOR ME?

just a lil run down for the newbies
I got the virus 15 or so years ago
I am type 1A
stage 1, when i last asked.
treatments; first 12 weeks was on the "new treatment" 360mcginterferon and 1200 RIB. NOW im on the normal treatments; 180micg' interferon and still with the 1200mg of RIB.

sounds like double dose of Pegasys for the first part of tx? good job in getting undetected.
