Thanks for this, zazza!

A couple of minor updates;  I'm at week 58.  So is Cruel World.

I believe NYCMark has finished TX but still hasn't done his 6 month PCR.

Proactive is at week 62 or so.

And I think Bill1954 is either finished or very close to the 72 week mark.

I haven't seen Drofi post in a while and I know Mouse is retreating and I assume she's further along than week 6.

Hugs,

Wyntre

Hi Zazza,

I’m currently in week 71 of a scheduled 72 week treatment with 204µg  PEG-Intron and 2000 mg riba.

I meet with my Hepatologist tomorrow to review treatment, and see if he wants to further extend/ modify current treatment.

Best of luck to you in your current efforts,

Take care,

Bill

Hi Valtod and congratulations! I saw your shout out over there somewhere and wanted to see if I could log into the site with my new computer and it let me in. For some reason it didn't work before, they made changes or my computer did, something went goofy and I couldn't login.
Thanks for asking after me. I am doing great. I tapered down at 72 weeks ( after my first 24 week attempt failed) and have felt better each day since I finished tx. Doc says I did 96 weeks because there was only a 2 week span between the two treatments so I don't know if I make the 72 weeker's list!
I go for my 6 month check in Feb. but my 3 month was UND so I am feeling confident about it. I am so incredibly grateful every day that I beat that @$%&$% virus!
I continue to take my ALIVE religiously each day with my berries and live culture yogurt and soy milk plus I take PPC, Curcumin and Heptapro. I keep to a diet of fish, grains and veggies and try to be good and drink water and not eat belgian chocolate, my vice of choice.

I do try to stop in and see how everyone is doing but with having my ENERGY back, I am back to my life and busy picking up with my business where I left off when I was diagnosed.
How are you? I am thrilled each time I see someone SVR, and wish courage on all that are still fighting.
My CT scan showed cirrhosis and I relapsed BUT I beat it in the end so all the people who are fighting out there, stay positive, it can be done! I strongly believe in the importance of eating well,especially for those of us with cirrhosis. I think that has helped me to have not gained any weight since I stopped tx. Even my red palms are now pink instead of bright red like they were when I was sick.

Take care everyone!

Thanks za!!! In the back of my mind I had hoped you would go through and update all this info---you are much better at this stuff than I...(I think the "back of my mind" has moved to the front and the front has moved to the back (lol)...I added the fact that Lonestar also did infergen..

good to see all the hard core warriors out showing their stripes, ribbons and
medals. yall may have to exclude me from the club as i am quitting full dose
at 60  (in just a few weeks) and tapering off to 72. i hope it still does the trick.
zazza and pro, yall were so far ahead of me and wyn, i got jealous and decided to catch
up by cheating!  glad to see you honorable record keepers of the fraternity
keeping us up to speed. great work!

You know what people need to fully realize is that our "chance" of getting to SVR was VERY LOW - that is what makes it a full on miracle that we did the 72 and are clear.

It's not just as if you do the 48 weeks, hitting UND on week 4 and are one of the 50%.

We were not supposed to really make it - but we did.  

THAT is the point of the 72 you know? And people need to remember that.

Great thread.

Zazza - i have March 26 markded on my calendar!  You are sooooo very close -- finally.  It has sure been a long haul.

And Bill 1954 -- a week or so to go?  Wow.  What did the heppo say?  Extend or end?

just sign me a 72 wannabe

87972 tn?1322661239
Kathy; just got back from the hepatologist's. In short, he agreed to extend treatment at my current dosage for a total of two years, unless I cry uncle first. This puts my current assigned treatment position at week 71/104, concluding 9/14/08. This was based on a number of factors; none of which are solidly supported by reasearch :o).

Lessons... be careful what we wish for, LOL!!

So....

Those in this persevering club are totally AMAZING...
Very sad reading 'relapsed'.  What happens?  Recuperate and do it again even longer?  I'm sorry, I don't know how to ask it in a more sensitive way.  I don't like these odds.  There are serious fighters here.  I'm in awe.

Hey, Zazza and all, thanks for the tagalong here.  72 weeks is the tested way.  56 is not tested just a number reaped from analyzed data.  For anyone considering extending don't bother with the 36 clear weeks theory!
