To all Geno 4s

1 year post tx PCR:

"HCV not detected"

I would do it again if I had to and I am glad I did
not postpone tx in hopes for better drugs.
My goal always was to see actual first 12wk
response and than go from there.
It led to SVR

Hi Bali,
Its always nice to hear from you. Congratulations on your one year anniversary result. Its very inspiring. Genotype 4 is minority in the US. No PI for us and no hope something will come out soon or the how effective the new drug will be. You gambled and it worked out perfect for you. I am starting to believe that the science about treatment of hep c is still far from perfection and still highly relative. I think that body condition, will power and mind control over the body have significant impact on treatment.
I am still in treatment. I can not project what will be the outcome but I have hope in God that all will be well for me and for all who are fighting this battle.
Bro, I really adore your courage, insight, knowledge and strength. Please stay active on the forum so that you may help few G4s to make the right decisions. Its a cash 22 for G4 but "He always make a way where there is no way".

Hi Zako7 fellow genotype 4 here, not treating yet. How have you been doing on the triple tx.

Congratulations.  It's been a long road for you; the diagnois part, Firbroscans, thinking about tx, thinking about SOC, 60 weeks of treatment, a year post treatment.  After all that...how many viral load tests do you think you've had from beginning to current?
979080 tn?1323433639
As many as I wanted and too many to count .... lol
Without looking at my folder I would guess around  25 or so could be more.

This last one I did mostly because I had a reinfection scare.... I was taking
care of my 85 year old father who is HCV 1 and who recently had a stroke
and now dementia . He fell multiple times with blood all over the place and
I cut myself trying to help him.
The people at the nursing home where is at now wear gloves when they
clean him ect...

I had more reasons than one to run this latest PCR.
