Most Excellent.  I've bee waiting impatienly to hear your news.  I hope that this is the year that you turn the corner and get more pleasant things out of life.  My 17-yr old is also quite a handful and I've been doing a lot of head-scratching in response.  But great to hear the news that hcv is part of your past now.  Fully recovered now?

Hello my friend!!! I was hoping you would be on when I posted!  I am feeling 90% better. I still have some joint pain which I think is here for the duration. I cannot say I am the old me. I do look at life quite different. Every day is a good day no matter what (even teenagers). I appreciate the simple things like walking up the stairs and still being able to breathe. How are you doing? Anything leftover from tx? I am so looking forward to the summer weather and the beach. It will truly be beautiful this year!!!!

I feel great.  I've already had a lot of time at the beach this year, it's relaxing and theraputic. I think that one of results is a greater appreciation of things and not so quick to anger or be disturbed over things that are now trival in comparison. Getting out from under HCV is a liberating change of view.  Many long weekends coming up in the next few months, including this one.  17 y/o graduates tomorrow.  He's got the stress, not me. My stress is the tween's travel softball schedule, and heck, I just sit in a folding chair for that.

Congratulations!!!! Oh what a feeling it must be.  I am taking my last riba pill right now...and I am on top of the world!!!  I feel invincible just for completing this tx!  

It too has been a very rough year with an 18 yr old daughter who graduates on June 12th (prom is on the 7th).  So I can really relate to you both.  I think I am more excited and nervous for her than she is (she doesn't have a care in the world).  

Once again, I am sooooo happy for you.  Time to start living and enjoying life again!

I hope to walk in your shoes and be SVR soon.  I will go for a 4 wk lab and then a 3 mos and then a 6 mos.  I am too happy about completing tx to be anything but optimistic right now!

Godspeed to all!

Congrats! It's a great feeling isn't it? Hard won victories always are. And don't be so sure the joint pain is "here for the duration." The joints in my feet and ankles caused me to limp around every morning after tx was over (no problems with them pre-tx). But now nearing my 1 year post tx mark (and SVR), it's cleared up. Odds are yours will wane over time too. So best of luck in the meantime, always great to see another person cured!
