have been worried because the PCR testing goes so much lower now. Should I be retested
No...there is no need whatsoever to be re-tested if you were UND @ 2yrs .post tx. Even tho the PCR's are much more sensitive today if you had relapsed your viral load would have shown much higher than the sensitivity of any of the old tests..Most likely in the hundreds of thousands or millions.
Congrats on your SVR you have nothing to worry about .
Enjoy your HCV free life.
You are fine, the old test went to 615 I believe, You viral load would have been much higher then that so no need to worry. Congrats.
Thank you Will and can do man. You have made me feel so much better. I figured at the 2 year mark if it was back it would have exceeded the 600 threshold. But it sure helps to hear it from someone else.
I don't know either of your status re: HCV. ( SR, in treatment, etc) But I wish you both the best. You are both doing a great service to heppers. I remember leaning heavily on those in my cyber family as I went through treatment. And then remained active for a number of years to give back what a reaped from such a wonderful community. Family and friends are great, but unless you are living with the dragon, or slaying it, you have no idea.
I tried posting my original question to the "ask the experts". Originally looking for a Dr's response. So if you see it posted again or elsewhere, this is why. Your response has been more than sufficient to put this topic to rest. Thank you.
