SVR or Relapse?

As more and more members are either reaching SVR or relapsing, I thought we could start a thread which allows those who have completed treatment to post their personal results. This may be helpful to others who will be starting treatment soon.

If you choose to participate, please follow this outline:

SVR or Relapse:

Great idea, A brief treatment history especially if it included the first round of protease inhibitors teleprevir etc could also be helpful.

Could we also include liver status; i.e. cirrhotic or noncirrhotic? Thank you for starting this thread, I'm 4 weeks past treatment with Sovaldi/Olysio and every time I read about a 1a cirrhotic reaching SVR it gives me hope. I'll post my 12 week end of treatment status on Oct. 23rd when they do the viral load test.

I know I'm posting too early on this question, and I'll have to update it later, but I can't help myself!

Gender:  Female
Age:  53
Ht/Wt:  5'7"/138 lbs
Genotype:  1A  (prior tested as 1A/1B..1B cleared on one of my tx's)
VL @ start:  2,165,111
Length of time since infection:  30yrs 99% sure infected in 1983-tested positive for nonA/nonB in 1985, told it was 'no big deal'.., elevated LFT's with RUQ pain and Dr. ran the hepatitis panel in 1994-positive for C then.
What Tx:  Sovaldi/Pegasys/Ribavirin
How Long:  10 wks  treatment completes approx 09/15ish...)
Date Started/Completed:  6/18 - 09/15ish...I think of 2014
SRV or Relapse:  to be determined..., so far week 4 and week 8 are undetected.
Liver Status:  had 5 biopsies over the years. 2 of them had bridging fibrosis later stage 2/border 3.., then, with more treatment, biopsy improved and my liver is not a low stage 2, no bridging, but more steatosis
Naive or Prior Tx:  VERY treatment experienced!  This is my 11th attempt at treatment and until this treatment, have always been a null responder.  I ever was on Telaprevir/Incivek.  Did double dosing of Peg-Intron and and double dosing of Infergen.  At one point I was doing a doctor sponsored study of combining Actimmune with a Peg another time, I was on Thymosin and Peg.  Another time when I was on the double dosing on the Infergen, doctor all had me double dosing the Ribavirn.  It's amazing I did keal over on all these different regimens.  I was in several trials, one of which was the Telaprevir/Incivek w/ no Riba/just Peg.., that's the group I was randomized into.  These past few treatment have been about 3 yrs apart.  There was several years that that I was doing a long treatment, didn't clear and then, a few months later was trying something else.  I can't do that anymore. I've put my body through too much.  If I don't SVR on this one, I won't be jumping into a new treatment immediately.  Need recovery time.  Susan400
