Liver Biopsy Stage 0 Grade 2

Oct 29, 2009 - 8 comments

Doctor ordered a biopsy to see how the HCV is progressing now that it has been over six months since relapse. Good news is that the results show Stage 0. Nada is a good number for fibrossis.  Grade 2 is kind of expected, but with no fibrossis it looks good for waiting for the Telaprevir or Bocepravir approvals expected next year.

I am feeling good about this and overall.

A big warm "Thank You" to everyone on this forum! You've all been so supportive.


P.S. All the bloodwork is in normal range including Alk Phos, AST & ALT!

Those are some very sexy results, Brent. How nice to get that information at this time of year, too; maybe with that knowledge, you can bring more focus on celebrating the holidays with your family, and less time sweating the details about this d@mn disease.

A very hearty congrats to you, guy—

Thank you all for the kind words. You all get a special place in my idea of heaven! I'll post some pics when I go skiing with my daughters (as soon as the snow covers the rocks). My TP surgeon is an accomplished and avid skier. Maybe I can make some runs and get some pics with him, too.

Fond regards,
