TX stops

Hi everyone!
Greg's not responding well enough to treatment to continue on. His doctor said that he can wait and try something else later or get on the liver transplant list in about 10 years.
Im really confused as he said Greg may die of other things before Hep C gets him but then he said he can go on a list in 10 years.  Either way it was a little dissapointing to hear but Greg's been off the meds for 3 weeks and he's feeling so much better. It takes a long time to get that stuff out of the system.
I will stay on this site and still participate as I still want to be aware of anything new and be support to others.
It was just bummer news.  :(
Take care and God bless you all, Janet

I have also stopped tx after a total 82 weeks and am waiting for 1 month post withdrawal pcr. In case it becomes positive again I want to try Ayurvedic medicines. Anybody has any idea?

I was thinking of you.  I am also off treatment.  We'll see what the future may bring us.      In the meantime, enjoy.  I wish you and Greg all the best.  Stay well....GingerB.

I'm so sorry to hear about your husbands response to tx.  I too am waiting to see what might be around the bend.  In the meantime practice healthy habits and try not to stress.  I am convinced stress is a waste of  precious time and only makes things worse.  Good Luck,  M4now

Thanks everyone... I'm hanging in there.
Greg's really happy about the end of TX but I'm still very disappointed. I know he temporarily feels better but I'm really concerned long term.
I will keep reading these posts and hopefully there will be another TX down the road that is more promising. :)

Oh Janet, I know you and Greg must be disappointed... but I'm glad he's feeling better now!  (And unless the doc's got a crystal ball, don't worry too much about the 'list in 10 years' comment... like desrt says thats years and years :) ... who knows what modern medicine can do in 10 years... by then, hopefully, there'll be sure cure!)

My best wishes to you both.

I'm sorry your husband didn't get a good response, but to me it sounds like the doctor is saying he's got years and years to wait and get on a better, more effective treatment. You're doing the right thig by hanging out here and keeping up with the latest. You both stay strong, he will get the response when they finally figure out how these meds really work and who should do what kind of treatment.
