post 6 months
My blood came back after 6 months of being finished with meds and they say all levels are normal and Hep C is undetected. Is that it, Im cured?
Can I have a cocktail and scream up and down i did it?
Do I have to never worry again?

my understanding is that there is no remission. once the virus is gone, it stays gone. you always will have the antibodies in your system, but the virus is gone.

Wonderful news ! Enjoy your cocktail.
If your liver was damaged prior to tx, you might want to go slow with the alcohol until your liver has regenerated.

Yay for you.. Congrats on your new life.  I had my first beer in 10 years after I cleared at 6 months post.. and it tasted like freedom.. Yippee!!!  I asked my doc if I could have one and she said yes, but not to over do it because the liver is still regenerating.. I had no plans on going out and getting drunk.. I just wanted to be able to order a beer and drink it..

Wonderful news. Congratulations! You are cured.

If UND at 6 months after end of treatment, you are considered cured. The virus is not in remission. It is gone. Enjoy your new Hep C free life.

It annoys me that there is so much misinformation out there and from a site that proclaims to be a Hep C site?  What the hepatologists are saying is that if it comes back after being SVR/Und after 6 months then that person was likely reinfected and not relaspsed.  So again, once gone, gone.  No boogie man here.

Comgratulations – dance all night long with lots of shouting for pure joy, and yes that one drink is probably the most well-deserved celebratory drink anyone could have. I'm SO hoping to be joining you one day in that SVR-land that exists somewhere over the rainbow!

Yippee and congratulations to you!!!

When I get to SVR, someone can have my celebratory drink because for me (and many of us here) one is too many and a thousand is not enough.

People used to tell me "I didn't know you drank until I saw you sober once"... Funny, I don't seem to remember that day :o)
