SVR - Class of 2010

Following the tradition that Marcia started in 2009, let's start a thread for 2010 SVR's. Hopefully it will be a good inspiration for all the folks going through treatment or about to start.

I was GT 3a with low viarl load but co-infected with HIV. Did 24 weeks SOC (pegasys & weight based ribavirin), RVR (clear at week 4) and clear all the way through - finished treatment July 20, 2009 and received my SVR on January 22, 2010.

Really glad to have this great community for support and information. Thanks everyone.

Great ideal. I hope it is a very large list. I think I'll be treating in 2010, but it's unlikely that I'll be graduating until 2011.

Great Idea!
Always a good idea to chat to others going through it and can relate to the our own experiences that are happening now.
I've got my appointment with the liver clinic first week of feb very nervous. Been contemplating treatment for a few years its down to the action now.
