And it's SVR !

I am a family practicioner doc in my country and 33 yrs old.

I have diagnosed in 2010 with hep c. And everything destroyed in my life after that diagnosis.

IL 28B : TT, no money, wife left and divorced after diagnosis. I was in anesthesiology specialization and resigned after diagnosis due to anxiety disorder.

And now...

I was in triple tx with incivo (telaprevir) and last week i have got RNA results for post tx 12nd week.  

ITS NEGATİVE (negative since week 4).

DONE!

This is wonderful news, Benjamin. Congratulations on attaining Sustained Virologic Response!

I remember when you first came on the forum so it is great to see that you you were able to treat and attain SVR.

I also treated with Incivek so I know what you went through on treatment. But it cured us, and for that we can be thankful.

I am sorry about your wife. I hope your life will improve now that you are cured.

(I also agree that you should get an HCV RNA test done at 24 weeks after end of treatment, just to be absolutely sure of SVR. While it is exceedingly rare,  0.3 percent of people can relapse at 24 weeks after end of treatment.)

Best of luck going forward!

So sorry you lost so much due to hepatitis C. I am glad you are now undetected. Don't forget to have another viral load checked at 24 weeks. Incivek is such a hard treatment to take.
