Triple tx



I got my Week 4 results today....and that is with a 4 week lead-in with Pegasys...so these results are before I added the  VIC to the tx.  My last Viral Load was 7.84+6 and now it is 3.69E+3.  So I believe that means I was 7,840,000 and now am at 369,000.  Wooooooo hoooooooo!!!  

Looking forward to see what happens at week 6!  They took my viral load today and will again at week 8.  Considering I am stage 4, with Grade 4 cirrhosis, I am thinking this is really incredible!  And my platelets actually increased from a decline at week 2!  Very cool!   Since I am the first one at the clinic to try the VIC triple tx, I have no one there to really compare with and they are tracting my sx as I go along.  All in all, it's a GOOD DAY!! :-))

I believe it is even better than that  3.69E +3 means 3690     very good congrats on this!!

Sorry . meant to explain...this is an exponential way to express VL   so 3.69E(ex potential) means you move the decimal  3  points to the right of the left hand number ..so 3690      this repesents a 3.3 log drop which is excellent for a 4 week lead in.. You should do very well and hopefully UND. at your next PCR.

Again congrats
