well that is not very bad news, usually with such high alt hbsag goes down and alt 1000 is usually tollerable for liver function.it is very important that doctors are expert on these situations and use of pegintf, when not exepert they stop pegintf to avoid any trouble.use of tdf combo might help in those cases with high hbvdna and sometimes alt goes down as hbvdna goes down
How are you doing melcul? What did they tell you in hospital?
Doctor says he wants me to continue if my liver functions are ok( coagulation ) and if I don’t get jaundice... (I don’t know much about his expertise, only what i’ve found online, seems like he’s the lead for liver transplants here, so hopefully he knows what he’s doing and doesn’t put me in to much danger)
I’m asking them for weekly blood tests because of this anyway.
he wants to continue until 3 months when he can see if i’m a responder (I’m currently ending my first month)
He says my immune system is reacting strongly, which may very well be true, but, of course, having in mind that i’m already f2, is very worrisome for me.
At the moment i have very little side effects, the only recurring one is a pretty serious body ache.
I have avoided treatment for years because i was worried of the worst. Had to face it at some point though...
After only 5 weeks, now i have to stop treatment because of the coronavirus crisis, my immune system and the fact that they can’t have me in the hospital atm. They say i should wait for a few months before this issues gets resolved... i was having a strong response and now i have to stop everything. This is really depressing
I've been on Tenofovir for around 4 months now. HBVDNA went down from millions to 100. Doctor says all my blood tests are normal. Hopefully i'll be able to stay on Tenofovir for a while and addon Peginterferon again.
Just wanted to update, in case someone would be in the same situation at some point.
5 shots of Peginterferon in February-March 2020. (ALT 1000)
Moved to Tenofovir in April 2020
After the firsts 4 months, all my blood tests came back ok.
Unfortunately, Last week i went for blood tests again ( 6 months on tenofovir at this point)
Today, I received a letter asking me to come in for blood tests again in 10 days. Hopefully, it's nothing too serious, but something should be wrong otherwise you don't usually get asked to come back. Just worried since I wasn't expecting anything to be off at this point. Is this something normal ?
Update: HBV virus and lft are ok.
They want to retest my kidneys, saying that i may have been dehydrated, although I’m drinking a minimum of 2L water / day.
What is your age. Age plays in consideration of treatment, since the treatment is not one fit all
30 years. I'm already on tenofovir, started 6 months ago.
