Thank you for this information. I am relieved about the interptetation of the hypodensity and the tumor marker. I just finished week 2 and actually have more energy than I have had in years. Also. my ankles are no longer swollen.
A molecular test was done and indicated my mutation reacted to the Mayvret. I am hoping my scheduled blood tests will indicate it is working.
I will keep you all posted as I get results. My fingers are crossed and praying for a cure. 40 years living with this disease, as all of you - I want to finally win the war and enjoy better health.
Hi Pacific, very good to hear that after just 2 weeks of treatment, you have more energy than you've had in years, and that your ankles are no longer swollen, that's the miracle of modern Hep C medicines. It's a very encouraging sign that your body is reacting well to the treatment. We're certainly all rooting for you to finally get rid of this terrible virus after 40 long years, please keep us posted on your progress.
It's great to hear you can feel the difference already. These medications are good and you are taking a good one. It should all be OK, but here's the thing. On the first round of treatment 5% of people fail. That's sad, but at FixHepC we run by the mantra of the US Marine Corps - No man (or woman) left behind.
I have nearly 4000 patients. About 200 failed the first round. A few died, but everyone else we got cured the second (or in a few cases 3rd) time around.
