I'm coming up on a year post tx I have had PCR's post tx at 4 wks, 6 mo, 9 mo (my GP), and now they are asking for me to test again for a 12 month now. All so far have been undetected since 4 weeks into treatment.
Is this really necessary and are there any other doctors still using that protocol? I get the feeling it is for their statistical analysis only (I wasn't in a trial). I don't mind, I just find it unusual compared to others.
Does your doctor know you have to pay for the lab tests? I would ask why is this important and will there be more PCR's in future since it is from your daily living income? Congratulation on 1 year SVR anniversary
