I just got my lab order for my HCV RNA via PCR (quant). I just pray that I am still have SVR. I am so nervous. I wish it did not take a week to come back.

Hepatitis C (HCV) and the test to see if I have sustained viral response.The blood test is RNA via PCR (polymerase chain reacton) The quantitative test is done to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and make sure the virus is not coming back (relapse) after the treatment. I completed the 48 weeks Feb 07 and I will find out next week if I am still have SVR.
Have you treated?
