Recent Bloodwork Results Seem Good
« on: January 09, 2021, 11:44:20 am »
Hi,

I hope you all are staying well in these trying times. I had mild Covid for months but I seem over it now, thanks to help from NIR near infra red saunas, transdermal BHT, and an herbal formula called Infx.

After being on Vosevi for 12 weeks in the Summer of 2018, I've been UND ever since. My ALT is actually below the normal range but my MD didn't comment on it. Is that OK? Happy 2021!!

Male -  HCV since 1982 - Born 1951 ~ Geno 1a

Did 8 weeks of Harvoni in 2015. Got normal AST & ALT and undetected VL by week 5, then relapsed 4 weeks post.
-----------------------------------------------------------
July 5, 2018 : began 12 weeks of Vosevi with a VL of 540,000 and AST & ALT of 65 and 105.
2 weeks in : AST 19, ALT 20
5 weeks in : AST 18, ALT 12, VL "<15 detected"
10 weeks in : AST 19, ALT 14, VL "<15 not detected"
4 weeks post : "<15 not detected"

Sorry to hear you got covid glad to hear you’re on the mend.

Yes without hep c that is a sure reason your liver enzymes would return to normal since your liver isn’t under continuous attack. I guess since they are normal I guess your doctor felt there’s nothing to say about normal test results.

It’s pretty quiet around here theses days since everyone it getting cured.

But anyway wishing you a great 2021 and congrats on being hep c free

Great to hear your blood work is fine Lukey. Your relapse was a real bummer seeing that we were in the same class of early harvoni treatment.


Because I still work now and then in seniors care cooking I have had my first shot of covid vaccine. But here in BC they are delaying the second shot so that more essential workers and seniors can get vaccinated first.


We are lucky that here: at least in Victoria BC, we have not seen the serious killer outbreaks in seniors care homes as yet...TOUCH WOOD!


I do hope more of the crowd check in and chime in and post how they are doing!


I just finished an update to my brothers web site, https://www.chrisluthier.ca that I write and administer. I did a video of him building guitars that is on the first page, that was a huge learning curve in my computer audio and video skills but was well worth the time and effort.


Unfortunately Covid 19 has killed any hope of getting his business off the ground effectively this year, largely because the music stores, (our potential clients) and especially performing musicians are not buying instruments because of Covid, so things are really depressing in that regard.


I do find that keeping mentally active and physically when possible is still the ticket and perhaps for those of us who survived HCV is the best route to staying healthy regardless of how depressed Covid makes us feel!


Stay healthy and all the best LYNN, LUKEY and everyone!

Hello Lukey, I too was finally cured with Vosevi before it was approved. I was in the Polaris 1 study. Polaris is my favorite star for good reason.

 This whole thing with Covid perhaps resonates differently with those of us who battled and are battling Hep C. We may have more respect for viruses than a lot of people and we may be more resilient in the face of the limitations imposed by this contagion. At least, that is my hope for us all. Best wishes.
Probably infected 1969. Diagnosed 2006. Genotype 1b.
