SVR! SVR! SVR!!

Hi All,
Just got that magic call: 6 month post tx tests came back UND! Its over for me, the feeling is unbelievable, I feel like I crawled out of a dark, dank cave and the sunlight is warm and wonderful...I wish the best for everyone on this site.
For those who are considering tx and those already on, I will post my stats:
Relapser, about 7 years ago, 1A, CT, start tx with 8 million, treated with Peg, riba, incvk, only had to do 24 weeks. Was UND at week 2, 3, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, and post tx 1 through 6 months to SVR. Had very bad sides but no rash. My hgb dropped to 7.4 around week 13 and went on Procrit, also had a dose reduction of riba and finally stopped it completely for about 3 weeks. When my hgb came back up I went back on it and finished tx, (apparently stopping riba had no affect on out come)
Good luck to all of you - Fred

Thank you for your well wishes!
I posted this comment yesterday on the regular Hepc site and within a couple of minutes, I got a message saying they had moved it to Hepc social site. Does anyone know why they moved it? I wanted to give people on tx some encouragement and inform all the friends I have made on the "normal" location. Thanks - Fred

Now that is some exciting news!  Fred, I don't think they should have moved this post but it is at the point now that I find I have to check both sites frequently -- and now a cirrhosis site as well -- oh boy!

Again, the very best to you.  You deserve it.

1st off, CONGRATULATIONS on your SVR!!!!

2nd of all, You CAN give people that are beginning treatment, thinking about treatment, in the middle of treatment... and people like me who is 8 weeks post treatment and wondering how my 3 month post treatment test is going to go a lot of hope and encouragment...    I dont post much anymore because I cant figure out the method to medhelp's madness.  However, I do read a lot jumping back and forth.  
Im just glad that I didnt have to try and figure it out during treatment.!!  To me it is all medical information.  Why else are we all here anyway!    
Best wishes to you and your new hep-c LIFE!!
