I read your other post from a few min's ago and yes there is a possible treatment for you. The new triple therapy treatment for genotype 1 patients who were non or partial responders on SOC. You have a 75 to 80% for partial responders and a 30% chance for non responders of SVR. The new drugs were just approved by FDA a couple of months ago so speak to your doctor. I hope this gives you some hope for the future and welcome to the forum.
