Finished Triple Therapy for Hep C

May 21, 2012 - 9 comments

Just wanted to send a message to the people going thru or about to go thru treatment for their Hep C.  I have take the Triple therapy(Ribavirin, Interferon, Incivek) and I have done my 3 month follow up after completing treatment and my viral load is a BIG FAT 0!!! I'm so HAPPY!! I'm back to my old self again, I dont have anymore side effects, it was so worth it! I wont lie, it was hard and a bit grueling at times, but thru faith and GOD I made it thru and I'm cured!!  Good luck to all beginning treatment, and hang in there to the ones still going thru it! I hope my post will give the ones hope and a little more strength!

Thank you.  This is just what I needed to read today.  I'm in Week 8/27 of triple therapy.  Peg/Ribavirin/Victrelis  I am trying to be positive but some days I feel as if I'm trudging through mud.  I have questioned whether I made the right decision but I have two sweet daughters who need me so there really is no choice here.  Congratulations on your well-earned success!  May God continue to bless you and yours. <3

So great to hear your VL is non existant! And even better you are feeling like your old self with no lingering sides;)
I just finished the Incivek part of tx and must say I feel amazing. Shot wkd is still not easy but expected and doable. That Incivek is nasty stuff! (Yet necessary)
14th shot due on Friday, I hope it all goes quick from here!

Thank you for sharing your experience, I am so glad you made it and I hope to follow your path of success!

Best wishes
Laura

I am so happy you finished treatment and are still UND. Your message gives the rest of us hope, not only that we can finish and hopefully attain SVR, but also that we will finally feel better after all of these months. Thank you for sharing.

I finished incivek 2nd week of May, feel a little bit better, but still having respiratory problems, coughing, shortness of breath and dizzyness to the point I've passed out. High humidity makes it worse. Is anyone else dealing with this? Thank you

I was really short of breath for a while and was REAL dizzy too, this was due to the anemia, after I took some procrit shots to get my hemoglobin back up this got better. I never passed out but seen spots a few times, I thought I was going out. The Md gave me some meds for the dizziness, and like I said the shots of Procit every week until my blood count was back up.  Talk to your MD about your side effects they should be able to treat this also as you go along. Hang in there, its tough and not easy at all, but you will find strength in yourself and know that you have to complete this to live!! It wont always be like this. I gained a lot of strength through faith in the LORD and if this done anything it brought me closer to him.  I pray that you can find comfort in him also. Best wishes!
