So... I've just went to the lab after 3 months and 26 days after ending my treatment and did a viral load exam and came back undetected.
Can I celebrate or can the virus come back to slap me in the face? I don't want to celebrate too early.
I was G1 treated with Viekira Pak and Ribavarin and still don't know if I have cirrhosis or not.
CT normal, MR normal, two ultrasounds normal, Philips ElastPQ no fibrosis and Fibroscan 21.6. Go figure. Labs mostly normal except a 1.16 INR during 45 days into treatment and 108 glucose also during treatment from 94 before treatment. I'm waiting for the numbers after treatment. Also ALP went from 60 before treatment to 112 during treatment. The maximum value is 100. Platelet over 250. And still a lot of abdominal fat to go.
The only thing I've noticed after treatment is that my fingernails got pink again. They were kind of white before, which is weird because my albumin levels were always over 4.2 but still good news. Hands still kind of red though.
So, am I cured? What should it be my next steps?
Also, I would like to give something back to this amazing community. You guys helped me a lot, especially Dr. James, and I was wondering if I can help you in any way.
