SVR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 6 month post treatment test is NEGATIVE!!!

That's all I can think of to say at the moment -- I'm fuzzy in the head from excitement.  In fact, it took me 3 tries to log on because I couldn't think of the password that I have used every day for several years.

Formerly known as geno 1b    :)

Thank you guys for helping me through the past year and a half!!!  Seriously - thank you.

Thank you so much to everyone here for sharing in my awesome news.

I have to say though that it was not as easy as you think to type SVR!!!!! as a discussion thread. Yes, I wanted to shout it to the world (and I did) but, at the same time, I felt sad for all those that have been relapsers or nonresponders and I felt as if I would be making their hurt worse.  I got tears several times today thinking of several of my friends here who fought bravely through TX and yet who failed treatment. So...yes, my personal fight with the dragon is done but my fight against Hep C is not over and will not be over until everyone gets the same negative result that I did. I might just be a tiny spec in this fight - but I'm here.

Again, thanks to everyone who helped me through TX! Without your help I would have lost my mind (or maybe I did but it was a softer loss...lol).  I  got help from many of you right from the get-go by giving me the strength to change doctors when my original GI was WAY BEHIND the times with his treatment protocol.  I'm generally not a wave-maker but you gave me the strength to kick him to the curb.  And of course, when my sides would rear their ugly heads during TX someone here was always quick to chime in and tell me it was normal and to hang in there or to call the doc, etc.  Knowing others who have been through it is PRICELESS.

Wow!  That's awesome.

I go for my 6-months testing on February 2 and sure do hope that I'm SVR too.  If I'm not, I don't know what I'm going to do since I was taken off treatment after 35-weeks due to pancreatitis caused by the interferon.  I don't think I can treat again because of that.  Good luck to you!

Awesome news!  

And so fantastic that you feel great, with numbers in range or just about. (I had one funny little out of range white cell count six months post-tx - can't remember which, monocyte or ? - but the doc said it was because my body was busy making neuts, so it was a good thing?!)

Congrats on your hard-earned victory and very warm wishes to a super gal.

Love,
Susan
