HCV RNA - Undetectible one month Post TX, Yaay
« on: May 13, 2016, 03:46:37 pm »
Diagnosed 8/97 with HepC
Liver Transplant 7/2004
Genotype 1b, Biopsy:12/2015: TX Naive, Fibrosis Level 1
ALT: 20, AST: 23
Started 12 wks Harvoni on 1/19/16
Finished 12 weeks on 4/11/16 HCV RNA Undetectible
Lab on 5/11/16 HCV RNA - Undetectible Yaay

I am one month Post TX and still undetectible, what a miracle med this is! The Hepatologists and transplant surgeons at UCSF inform me that if someone is going to relapse, it usually shows up in the labs on the first month Post TX, so I am jazzed!

I didn't have to pay anything for Harvoni (On Medicate & Tricare), I had no side effects at all and now I am still undetectible.

Just waiting for my two month labs in July to be cured and free!

God is good!
