2.5 years cured still have cirrhosis now for 9.5 years but otherwise good
Just over 8 years post failed Combo tx, I'm 1 week in with Harvoni. I was left with panic attacks that started during tx and never left. I started a new drug for that, Effexor about a week before I began the Harvoni. Both drugs cause blurry vision so that is my only complaint. My computer has drop shadows on the letters and my night vision was already pretty bad. I'm hanging tough with both, actually feel pretty good other than the blindness :/
Hi don't worry. Doing well after treatment but having unrelated health issues.
Been outta touch and hope everyone in the Hep community is doing well. Happy to see u r thriving.
I'm three years clear of Hep C. I do an MRI every 3 months for cancer check. I am at stage 4 cirrhosis.
My concern is the memory loss. I am experiencing this and I'm reading that could have caused by the combination of interferon and ribavirin.
So hard to tell as the baseline for what it felt to be 'normal' vanished years ago. Survived Hep C but on to the next bit that aging brings
Celebrated my 4 years post transplant on the 2nd and still performing here in Arizona. All is well...
I was diagnosed 10 years ago this month with cirrhosis.
Still kicking :-)
I was diagnosed in 2005 with cirrhosis. SVRed with with peg/riba and took Heptech's fibrosis cocktail on and off. Fibroscan from last year says all is well.
I was diagnosed with HCV in 2008, and cured by Sovaldi/Olysio in 2016. However, my fibrosis was F4 when I was cured, and cirrhosis was diagnosed.
My latest ecoDoppler (ultrasound) shows the beginning of fatty liver disease, which my hepatologist says will double my chances of getting HCC, already double the norm because of HCV.
I have no idea how to stop the fatty liver disease except to stop eating altogether, since I already diet.
I think that age (74 now) is catching up with me, and maybe the HCV will get me in the end despite having eliminated the virus.
If there's any moral to this story, it's that everyone should be tested and those with HCV treated immediately, before serious liver injury has occurred. I may have waited longer than I should have.
