I Have A Favor To Ask...Please

Hi Everyone, I had an appointment yesterday with My Gi, & I told him about all of You on this Site...He will be attending an HCV Conference soon, & was wondering if You would Not mind posting Information about Yourself, So I can print it out for Him...
He ask for the following info...
Geno Type~Age~Male/Female~Height~Weight~VL~What Tx are You on?
All Medications You are taking....And the Status of Your TX..
Even those that have completed Tx...

I don't mean to be Intrusive, but he is Trying to get an Idea of how the current Tx is working...

I am 42/F, 1a, 5'7, Weight 107, on Pegintron/Rebetol, 34/48 this Friday, I was undectable @ week 12, & Negative @ week 29..
I am fortunate enough not to have to Take any Ad's, or other meds, except Xanax when needed (Husband will not come home if I don't take it) LOL

I would Truly Appreciate Your help..And I Thank You in Advance!!

age - 47

genotype - 1a

sex - male

height - 6'

weight - 150 lbs (170 pre-tx)

viral load - 3.2 million (pre-tx)

medications - 180mcg Pegasys (now taking 90mcg); 1000mg Rebetol (stopped at week 50); Neupogen (took every 3rd week, not currently needed); Xanax (when needed); One-A-Day (w/out iron) & a Zinc (my nurse said it helps the interferon) vitamins; Tylenol PM (when needed)

treatment status - undetectable at week 12 & throught treatment, on week 59 (50 full combination treatment, 9 at 'maintenance dosing')


BIOPSY STATUS = STAGE 3 (I would also include that because my understanding is the viral load doesn't matter that much, it is the biopsy results that count.)

Female, 46 yo, 1B, VL 596,000, 121 lbs pre-tx (now 116 lbs);  
meds are .5 Pegintron and 800 mg Rebetol;
at wk 12 - VL 370; will do 20/48 this Friday.  

If I'm undetectable at 24 wks and continue, my dr is now talking about an additional 12 wks since I am a slow responder.

No other prescription meds at this time with exception of bc pills.  I do take a children's multivitamin, 800 IU's of Vitamin E, and calcium daily.
