You have good taste in music.
Stage 4 grade 3
Probably had this 30 years. Was misdianosed for 3 years when my platelets got low in 2003....Went to hemotologist and dianosed with ITP an auto immune disorder. I went to a new Primary Care Dr in 2006 who properly dianosed me with Hep c.I have cirrhosis and have been evaluated for a transplant if needed. I txed once with pegassys and riba for 48 weeks and relapsed. I am in a boceprevir trial now.
I get along alright.....

Infected about 30 years
Diagnosed Jan 2008
Tx'd 48 weeks in a Vertex trial
Still UND at 5 months post
Going for my 6 month post PCR on the 17th...hoping and praying for SVR
Tx wasn't fun. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Infected between 1980-1988
Diagnosed in 2003
Tx ed 28 weeks in SCH900518 Trial (quit at week 28 not week 52 due to sides)
Still detectable at week 16 ?? not exactly sure but I did not get good results on SOC. I got option to do Rollover Arm (I was in Control Arm - SOC in the beginning) because I did not make 2 log drop at week 12 but did make > 1 log drop. Completed the full 12 weeks of additional 2 study drugs.
Relapsed at 4 week EOT (VL 81, 000)
Viral load at 12 weeks EOT 105,000
Won't do it again unless I have to, unless they come up with a no interferon option. ( I think this may happen). Still having side effects but nothing unbearable (ears ringing). For the most part life is good post Tx!
genotype 1 (not sure a or b) probably in 1971, discovered infection 2yrs ago around Xmas. biopsy 2/2007 stage 1 grade 1 no insurance waiting....
will redo labs for blood work after the new year just to see. (not that I really want to)
