I finished SOC treatment for hep C at the end of March, since I was geno 2, triple tx was not recommended.
In April I celebrated the third year anniversary of my transplant, finally clear of the virus that destroyed my first liver.
A few months back a woman posted about her husband who, post tp, was doing well on triple tx. I wrote to her but have since lost contact. There's a woman I know from a tp forum who's going to start the triple tx soon.
BTW: I'm doing really well, bouncing back from the treatment.
Well we are in the same boat Jim. I am liver transplant 5-23-10 recipient. I started my triple therapy last nite. I did my first shot. I am on incivek. My hospital will only do incivek on post transplant patients. . Immune suppression meds react better with incivek. I started with a 1/2 dose interfreon, and a 1/3 less ribrviron. That will change after my Wednesday labs I am sure. Took my shot at 9 pm last nite and just now starting feel like I have the flu. I forgot how much this treatment takes on us. We have to be strong and get this virus out of our livers ASAP....Will post how it is going. Good luck to you, and everyone on treatment. Thanks to all who post here. I really learned so much...
