September 28, 2014 at 10pm EDT I just logged on to my VA records site and got the good news HCV viral load undetected 12 weeks post treatment.
Sept 21, 2014 Sorry for not updating sooner. Spent the rest of the summer working carnivals or going to music festivals.
12 week VL taken Sept `18 and expect results with in a week. Blood work was normal except platelets back up to 97 pre-tx range was around 87 -92.
CT abdomen w/wo contrast performed 9-18-2014 (Compensated with varices) see results detailed posted in comment no. 3 below.
Aug 7, 2014 6 week post EOT HCV VL still showed undetected. Blood work was normal except platelets were 74 the lowest they have ever been when tested..
Finished treatment on June 25 hgb 11.8 a little low VL undetected EOT (end of treatment). Still feel fatigued from RBV. I try to nap 30 min once or twice during the day if needed I am focused on staying active as much as possible.
I went camping over the 4th of July weekend at the Great Blue Heron Music in Sherman, NY country rock, Cajun, folk, Roots, Zydeco, Bluegrass music etc. Didn't get much sleep Friday night was in the dance tent till 2 am then back up at 5 Am till 7 am then 4 more hours of sleep. Sleep real good Saturday night in my tent with 18in high great air mattress. 3w Am till 11 am . Temp was about 55 late at night great sleeping weather . Kept well covered and used bug spray to protect against possible tick Lyme or mosquito born West Nile and other possible diseases.
The music and fellowship was amazing.
Going to bed now it's midnight Monday night and have to get up at 6:30 AM for cataract eye surgery for my other eye. I love being so busy i don't have much time to thing about being tired or not achieving SVR. Damn it's summer and doing my best to enjoy it without overdoing it. I exercise, use mediation, try to eat healthy and be socially active. I will nap if needed but then focus on doing something positive no matter what.
July 16, 2014 Latest Update, cataract eye surgery went well since I had to limit my activities for about 10 days like running lifting etc. I've spent a little more time commenting in the Hepatitis C community the past week.
Planing on heading to Trumansburg, NY near Ithaca for the Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance grassrootsfest.org so will give an update next week.
