Yes my understanding is that when you treat your HCV you are in essence treating your Cryo. According to the HCVAdvocate Cryo is one of the most common conditions associated with hepatitis C There are a few members with experience at this who are still active on the forum and there are several decent thread that ought to provide insight.

Hi Joe, I had cyro before I treated my Hep C.  They cyro is caused by the Hep C. I was miserable with the cyro.   I am now close to 6 months post tx and my cyro is gone.
I can  understand how you feel.  If I were you I would find a hepatologist and ask about new treatments.
I wish you the best
