I am one of the SVR after 72 weeks of Interferon +Riba
2 years ago I started Interferon and Ribavirin for 72 weeks..5 months before I finished the treatment the triple treatment started.It was not easy,but now more than 6 months after end of Interferon I am UNDETECTED=SVR.
I am happy,because after 25 and half years with HVC I am free of this enemy.
I have some tendonitis, and sometime a pain on hands'fingers,maybe post treatment effect,but I hope for better.
Best wishes and health to all the membres of this forum.This forum helped me very,very much.@ years it was almost every day like my family and home.
Wow - old school, 72 weeks. There is a club 72 thread here drifting around the archives somewhere. What was your trigger to do 72? When did you reach UND. I congratulate you. 72 has got to be rough and you perservered. Thanks for telling us.
I don't often check in here, but I'm thrilled to see your post on an SVR after 72 weeks - welcome to the club!! I'm almost 2 1/2 year post and though the first one after finishing tx was kinda grim with symptoms similar to yours, they have all abated, and life is good indeed! Keep to a healthy/liver-friendly lifestyle and you should rebound in short order. Yeah for you!!!!
Thank you again.

Again, thank you to all the members and I wish to all of you a happy and easy SVR!!!!!
