Hey Sven :) Went in for labs Mon. morning. Metabolic panels, and blood tests are in, but no word yet on HCV quantitative analysis.

So far so good. Bottom line - LFTs are well within normal ranges, so I'm hopeful that HCV remains UND.

The Thanksgiving holiday (US) means I probably won't have access to the results until sometime next week. When I get them, I will post them here.

Thanks for thinking of me Brother. I appreciate you!

Now eventually there may be an exception but in my experience normal bloods at SVR12 and UND go hand in hand.

I should really say "In my series". Here is secret doctor code:

I am familiar with the procedure = "I've seen it done"
In my experience = "I've done one"
In my series = "I've done 2 or more"

I have now seen over 1000 patients achieve SVR and not one has had normal LFTs and a viral load.

Don't be the first!
YMMV

Time to put another notch on your stethoscope, Doc. We won. Thank you!

Just received the following message from my gastroenterologist.

"Dear *****

As you may have seen, your test results are back and are normal.
There is no detectable virus in your blood. This is SVR12 and a cure. Congratulations!

Hope you have a happy thanksgiving."

What an awesome, awesome surprise.

SVR12 baby, yeah!!!

Once again, heartfelt thanks, and gratitude to Dr. Freeman, Dr. Debasis, my US gastroenterologist who courageously stuck her neck out to follow my treatment, and to my friends and family here at FixHepC, without whom this would have been a very lonely, very frightening journey.

Aw, thanks Dr. James, RHF, GF, GAJ, and Fara! Ya'll are the best!

Less than 24 hours now since I received confirmation of SVR12 from my US Specialist. On a holiday no less! She really came through.

Quite honestly "cured" still seems a bit surreal. Well, more than a bit really.

Its going to take some adjustment, not hiding my HCV status from family, friends, and strangers alike. Not making up excuses for the awful brain fog, the crippling joint problems, the skin lesions, the bouts of depression and desperation which for me were part and parcel to the illness.

Yesterday, I said grace with my family over the Thanksgiving meal. It was a simple prayer "Lord, we have much to be grateful for, and we give thanks. Amen".

Of the people at the table, only my wife and daughter knew that I had been HCV positive, and only my wife knew that I had just received word from my specialist that I am cured. I'll tell my daughter this weekend.

I would have liked to have shared with everyone, but knew through long experience that the news of cure would have been far overshadowed by the shock (to them) and the stigma of having had the disease to begin with. It was a bittersweet triumph, but one I value more than words have the power to express.

I'm so glad I can share it here, where others know how much it means - and where hopefully someone just tuning in will read about my journey and become inspired to begin their own.
