- Apr 6, 2002It is important to know your HCV viral load after end of treatment. That holds the key to further outcome.
Dr Sharat Misra MD,DM,FACG
Like I posted before, I am almost done with recommended treatment of
6 month course for genotype 2b w/cirochiss. I ws just wondering if u
r still experiencing symptons of hep, I guess that means the viral
load and virus is still there and the chance of reaching undetectable
would not be good. Symptons i am talking about are still dark urine.
However, if i drink a glass of water, it goes normal. Also, I hv had
the red palms (which is also a symton of hep) for years and years and
that is still there. My eyes are not yellow nor my skin, but eyes
look cloudy. So, i see symptons of hep still lurking around so this
can't be good if i am physically seeing this, right??? Also, i
thought there ws suppose to be a viral load done @ 12 weeks and here
I am almost finished and I hvn't had one done and only hv had 2 liver
tests that tells about the enzymes alt and ast and both of them were
normal. The first one ws done @ 7 weeks into treatment and they were
normal and the second one the enzymes were even lower, but I guess
one doesn't hv anything to do with the other. Just because u hv
normal enzymes doesn't necessarily mean the viral load is coming
down, right. I know I sound and I am getting really anxious right now
and a little scared because if the dr won't extend the course of
treatment for me, this is it for me and I am coming down to the wire
now. So if anyone hs any responses for me and and all r appreciated.
This group hs been so helpful to me and u hv always been there for me
and I very much appreciate this.
