6 mo. post tx results/geno 3 slow responder

Drum roll please....
HCV QuantaSure Plus(Non-Graph)
I love this!! I love you guys!! You cannot begin to understand the joy, and relief..oh wait...yes you can!! That's why I love you!!
Unable to calculate result since non-numeric result obtained for component test.
Less than 10 IU/mL indicates either complete absence of HCV RNA or in rare cases, low copy number below the detectable limit of the assay.

Now I'm believing it's complete absence!! I think there are more sensitive tests, but I'll take this for now!!
So do I have to wait for the 1 yr. mark before I call myself SVR?

Zazza...I would have never known to ask about extending if you hadn't let me know the stats on slow responders, you and CS. Thank you so much for your wisdom and encouragement. Now it's comeagains turn.
Elaine, Your encouragement to me during all you were going thru with Nick was a light to my soul. Your willingness to reach out and help others an inspiration. There will be a day this dragon will be beat without all we have to go thru now.
Everyone, Please know how profoundly you have touched me, and how thankful I am to have found this crazy place when I was first diagnosed. What a long strange trip it's been. Thank you for being a part of my journey.
yea! =)

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and it ain't Sara Palin, then it must be an SVR! Yoohoooooooo for yoooo from a fellow former 3a. Great news, especially being a slow responder.

I am so very, very happy for you! The slow geno 3 responder - you did it! You know our history, you were the first geno 3 slow responder who really listened to my encouragement to extend tx after I had seen Comeagain relapse. My eyes are filling up with tears of joy - I am just so happy, happy, happy for you!

And that <10 test is all you need. It is as good as any sensitive test. Enjoy your SVR, you are such a nice person.

Hugs, Za
