So sorry to hear about your results.
My situation is very similar to yours. Also null responder, one monotherapy 3 shots a week of interferon in maybe 91 or 92 something like, that then 2 with interferon and riba (one was a trial with another med). Never did Telaprevir doctor said no as I already had cirrhosis by then. Also GT 1a also cirrhosis DX in Jan 2008. I am MELD 7 child A. My doctor is just going to do the 12 week post test so I still have a month to wait for that.
Have you heard about Sovaldi Ledipasvir single pill combo hopefully available some time after October?
from this link http://www.hepmag.com/articles/ELECTRON2_SOF_2501_25458.shtml
Finally, those with genotype 1 who had failed a previous attempt at therapy with Sovaldi and ribavirin were all cured (19/19) with triple therapy.
“These results also suggest that LDV/SOF may be an effective treatment regimen for HCV genotype 1-infected patients who have failed a previous sofosbuvir-based regimen and those with advanced liver disease, including decompensated cirrhosis.”
Good luck and best wishes hang in there a cure is coming soon
You said those who failed s & v wth ribo were all cured with triple therapy.What is the triple therapy you are referring to?
Please let me know before Friday,I would like to present this to my doctor
That was a quote from the link I believe they were referring to Sovaldi ledipasvir and Ribavirin. I am sure you probably would have seen here Sovaldi ledipasvir is not yet approved hopefully it will be available in November so still a ways out yet
You posted your side effects are worsening. What are they?
Hi Glen. This has been an ongoing question on this forum for the past month or two. Know Hector has commented with a good plan for others in your predicament.
Not computer savvy, or would give you some links. Perhaps he will see this and respond.
So sorry that things seem to be getting worse. Can understand your concern having the virus still. From my understanding geno 1s, will have several good options.
Thanks Lynn,got it written down and I will ask Dr Santoro about them tomorrow.
