SVR!!

6 months post tx I finally reached SVR! I got a copy of the bloodtests drwn and everything is back to normal, no numbers out of range! I also have an hgb at 13,5!! I ca't imagine that just 6-7 months ago, I was having hgb down to 7-8...and was feeling so down and tired..and now; SVR! Great feeling!

After tx I felt started feeling well again after a couple of months. Things were busy with small kids to take care of, a husband who wanted me to take over the "job" after him taking care of me for so long during tx. I am now working two jobs again, busy with all the activity that comes with two kids (4 and 7 years old). I had a lot of guilt feeling through treatment, I was so moody, so aggressive, and no patience at all...and to finally be able to do things with them again felt great. Go out swimming on a Saturday, taking walks out in the woods, just being around and being present with people, felt great. I went to a nice trip to London with some very good old friends of mine.
And slowly I started forgetting about all the hell I went through with treatment. It fades away.

Now, the last couple of weeks, especially after christmas, I feel a bit loss of energy. Tired. Need more time in the morning, to feel awake and ready for all the tasks. Not so grumpy, but still a bit of loss of energy.

I think it mostly has to do with christmas and all that comes with it; stress, cooking dinners for the whole family, lots of gatherings, buing presents, and working hard to earn money to be able to give my kids a nice christmas...puh!

And that's what reminds me about treatment, that I have to take it slow, not expect to be 100% all the time. I'm not the most patient type..

I feel a great relief that I can put all this behind me now, that I actually don't have hcv anymore. I would like to give blood, give back what was given to me. But I can never give blood, unfortunatelly.
But I can try to encourage others that consider treating...and I will never prejudice anyone having hcv. I've lived under that cloud for so long, and no one deserves to be discriminated for having it.

Well, a lot of thoughts going throug my mind having these last results. I feel joy, I feel humble, I feel I've changed. Gotten a bit older. But it feels ok :)

Good luck, fellow worriers! And thank you so much, to all of you answering my posts, giving me so much information, helping me through this. I could not have done this without you! Those of you who remember my posts, will remember how scared I was, how anxious I was about the bloodtransfusions.

Thank you!

Bo, Wonderful, wonderful news and feel so happy for you.  I recall your struggles through trt, all those transfusions and so nice to see you made it with flying colors.  Hopefully as time goes on your energy will level off and things will all return to normal.  I have some low energy days also, but I have my doubts if it has anything to do with trt.  Enjoy your family and your Hep C free life!

I am so happy for you.  It is normal to be tired after Christmas, it sounds like you jumped right back into doing an awful lot.
Two jobs?! WOW! I am impressed, plus two small children.  I get tired just thinking of it :)

Congratulations! It was a tuff tx and it is over, thank God!
