Celebrating 7 years SVR Free!
« on: December 01, 2022, 11:19:29 pm »
I know its a bit of a ghost town around here, and, I miss the check ins so I thought I would treat myself to a bit of celebratory news. Even if its only for me.

I started my treatment on 11/24/2015. Seven years ago. For the most part everything went smooth.
I was F4 and considered cirrhotic and I always had chronic right flank pain, most likley liver or gall bladder related. Certainly HCV realeated.

I feel great now and thanks to treatment I suppose I have been given extra time.  I'm enjoying life more than ever and pray for continued health.  Love to all my fellow class of 2015/16 and I hope you're all doing well in cured land.

Peace and Love!

Greg

Hi Greg my fellow class mate!

I also started treatment in November 2014.

I was diagnosed F4 cirrhosis in January 2008 with a liver biopsy.

Haven’t been quite as fortunate as you I’m still F4 on my last Fibroscan spring 2022 by my liver functions are normal. I did have sone anomalies show up on my ultrasound two years ago that were suspicious for cancer so I've been having CT scans now ever since to be more watchful. They haven’t changed so my doctor is optimistic they are not cancerous.

So other then that scare its been “steady as she goes” still hangin in.

Happy to hear from a fellow alumni happy holidays and all my best to you and yours. :)
