Because of insurance and financial concerns I delayed my latest PCR until I was hovering around the 7 month post triple tx. mark. I received a voicemail from my P.A. today....I am clear...I post this more to educate than to celebrate. I was on the bottom rung of the stat ladder....I failed both mono and dual therapy (null responder) over the last 2 decades and have cirrhosis with varices and thrombocytopenia. Also my Incivek was discontinued at 10 weeks secondary to rash and anemia and my ribo was reduced at around 7 weeks secondary to anemia.....Relative to my time spent on therapy I feel terrific. I am more anabolic (building muscle when I work out) have less insomnia, and have stopped having nocturnal cramps...My best. d
Major congrats to you!!! And yes, time to celebrate, too. You fought a very hard battle to attain SVR and you succeeded. Kudos to you. And so good to see that you're feeling terrific. Hope you have continued good health.

This is really great news. I hope you continue to post and check in to let us now how you are recovering and getting your life back. Health and happiness as you continue to recover and move on to the next chapter of your life☺
youdennis, this is music to my ears. Let me ask you two things -- did you have the varies before you treated or did that happen during or after? I am wondering about that because of the greater risk to decomp during treatment with cirrhosis. Also I was wondering, with the thrombocytopenia, how low were your platelets to start, how low did they get during, and what are they now?
I am so delighted that you achieved SVR. I know it was not an eazy journey (you did 48, right?)
