Hey Debs, pat1, coral, Geedfighter and last but never least :lol: Ariel!
Let me say thanks for all of you. Reading the "history" of each of you lovingly caring and supporting one another touches me deeply, and I know you've certainly done the same for me in the comparatively short time I've been among you ... thank you for letting a "strange" stranger hang here with you :) :silly: I hope we can ALL meet some day... maybe a Fixhepc reunion party :lol:
:woohoo: I just imagined what a great crowd we'd be. Can YOU imagine Dr. Freeman's face if we made it a surprise party for him haha. #love

Hey Matt!
The medicine is doing its job and your little viral buddies will all be gone shortly.
ALT level: That is a good indicator. Those enzymes are supposed to stay inside healthy liver cells. When they are high, lots of cells are being destroyed. The movie "Alien" has nothing over the replication cycle of HCV.
You are on your way to a Hep-free life!
We'll be home in a week. Out of the cool Transylvanian weather and back to the sweltering heat of the South.
I figure thats why God created air conditioners...
Mine will be getting a workout!

That's definitely a "TWO THUMBS UP" result Matt.



It's really reassuring when you actually see it printed on a piece of paper ... :woohoo: :woohoo:

Keep up the positive vibes!

Well friends, it's July 4th weekend here in the US which means little to the rest of the world, but is one more excuse for people in this country to "party" and blow stuff up. :lol: Calm down fitz! I'm just pokin' a little fun :lol:
Fireworks, when done by professionals and far away from my house, are a spectacular sight. It's the ones where unprofessionals lose fingers and eyes, start fires and scare the p_ _ _ out my animals, (literally) that I wouldn't miss. ;) oh well it only lasts a couple of days. :lol:
It's the day after the 4th I'm looking forward to. I meet with my specialist for the 1st time since he wrote my prescription to Fixhepc and since getting my 1st labs done. I can't wait to hear what he says about them and the use of generics to achieve those fantastic results. I'll ask him if he'd be willing to order labs sooner than EOT so I can see if there's been further improvement. Originally my family practitioner said he'd order whatever labs were necessary, but has since deferred to my specialist, who informed me 4 & 12wks after EOT was SOP for him and that's what he has planned. I'm going to appeal to his sense of medical curiosity and ask for one more ASAP, since my last one was at 3wks after SOT and when I see him it'll be almost 7wks in. So, send a few positive vibes toward the Pacific NW that day ... Hey! Who knows? Right? I'll post here how things turn out.

Cheers to ALL

Hi Matt, yes I think that's a good plan. For me it was important to confirm VL UND about 8 wks after SOT and before EOT even though I was UND at 4 weeks. I now know that it wasn't required if you are UND but that was way back in January before Redemption Trial data was released. It was my thinking at the time and it was very reassuring for me to know that Tx was continuing as it should.
