Here is her page. You might send her a message, just incase she misses this.  This is a busy forum, but weekends can be slower.  HectorSF is another one who knows about T.P and TX.

Hi,
  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.

Good luck.

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... Jerry

Good luck on your treatment. So you are 4 years post I hope you have doing well since your transplant. No too many bumps in the road.

Did the transplant center do a biopsy and determine that you need to treat your hepatitis C due to the development of fibrosis?

I hope to treating going right up to my transplant. If I can get my viral load to undetectable for a few weeks before I have my transplant I might be able to avoid infecting my donor liver.

Good luck with your treatment!!! I hope any adverse events are minimal.
