Another SVR!
OMG, I can hardly believe its true! I do believe I should be tethered to the ground for a while to make sure I don't float all the way up to the stratosphere in my bliss. After 30 years of HCV and a total of about 2.5 years spent in tx (over three tries) I've finally achieved SVR. All my dear friends on thus forum deserve a huge amount of thanks for the support that kept me going – I wish I could give each and every one of you a big hug, but I'm sending virtual hugs anyway.

Thanks to all of you! I'm recovered from all the sx and feeling fairly good. I wish I could say I feel fabulous, but my body isn't really cooperating with me on that one. The problems that the treatment caused have faded away, and I have a whole lot more hope going on than I did before tx, but I do still have fatigue (probably the cirrhosis) and joint pains. Maybe at the one year point I'll feel great! I'll let you all know, as I do plan to stick around.

Very Very glad t see this. Also extremely glad to read that you have recovered from all side effects or the medication. I was a pretty rough go there at the end.  I hope you are getting to travel and enjoy those things you could not while treating.  

Do you have any plans for a biopsy sometime in the future?  They tell us clearing the virus will not make the cirrhosis go away, just delay the progression some, but still we all hope for a reversal.    I understand that joint pain, especially in the morning.  I don't know what is but I do know that for me, I still have not become as physically active as I was before tx.  As for the fatique, it seems to come with age too so it is hard to pull out what might be cirrhosis related.

So glad you are SVR

I am so very happy for you!  It was a long tough tx. I think it takes a while to get to where were before tx.   It will get better, it just takes time.
I am so thrilled, I am getting my dancing shoes out for the occasion!
Bless you!

Congratulations!!!

Glad you kept on trying despite previous disappointments.
In time you will feel better and HCV will just be a blip on your journey through life.

Having cirrhosis it isn't uncommon to have fatigue. With cirrhosis you should continue to monitor your liver's status as could be take a number of years to partially reverse itself. Although the chance of developing HCC are lower now due to SVR, you should continue to be monitored for the next number of years with ultrasound and AFP surveillance.

Congrats!

You are another one of those generous, crazy generous people on this site and I am so happy for you. I'm at 5 months post treatment and still having sluggish days too. I think you will slowly gain improved health as time goes on.
A big cheers,

Re: biopsy, I am thinking I would like to have another biopsy at some point in the future, because yes, I am very much hoping for some degree of reversal of the cirrhosis. My hepatologist doesn't rule out some reversal but doesn't encourage me to put much hope into it either. He also doesn't sound like he will be much inclined to do any more biopsies in the future, but I'll wait until I some time has passed and until I feel some improvement before I start to worry about twisting his arm on that. Many things could change by then.

For now I'm just so happy that all my struggles have finally succeeded in slaying that dragon!
