      Hello, My name is Jennifer and 2 years ago we found out my husband has HCV.
      With in the last 2 months he has had an ultrasound, blood work and last week
      a liver biopsy. We go to the specialist tomorrow to find out the biopsy
      results and what he is a candidate for. He definitely has had this virus for
      at least 10 years. We picked up his blood work today to take tomorrow and it
      shows he is a Genotype 3a. We have been lurking on the list and we share all
      your feelings and concerns with this dreaded virus. Wish us luck tomorrow for
      our app. If I am understanding correctly Genotype 3a is to his benefit if
      there is such a thing with this virus!

        Hi Jennifer and welcome to you and your husband. :-), Like you said about the benefit, yes if you have it, it is good it is Genotype 3. There are others here who get into the more technical things and will let you know.

            Hello: Jennifer:
            Yes, if you are going to have this virus 3a is one of the easier forms
            to clear.
            I have/had genotype 3a but after 1 year of treatment I'm undetectable for the
            last almost two years now. So good luck to you and yours.
            Take care,

                  Hi Jennifer,
                  I'm glad you decided to write in! Good luck with
                  the biopsy results. And yes, genotype 3 has a pretty
                  good response rate, so your husband is lucky in that
                  area. With the new pegylated interferons and
                  ribavirin he stands a great chance of success with
                  treatment. Let us know his results.
                  Good luck to you both,
                  Claudine

                          to start pegylated treatments in 6 weeks. He recently started with some herbs
                          including milk thistle, and is now on a low-fat diet. What do you all think
                          about milk thistle? He also takes a pill called liver cleanse. He also is on
                          a multi-vit,ester c and vit-e.

                              the vitamins etc you mentioned are good, plus I would add vitamin B complex
                              without iron. I found this helped me with mouthsores, skin rash and dry
                              hair once I started treatment. good luck with it all.

                                I think Milk Thistle is THE most important
                                "alternative" item you can take for your liver. There
                                is plenty of evidence, mostly from Germany, that it
                                really can help protect the liver. I have come to
                                believe though that it is important to make sure you
                                get a good, reliable brand, one with a good
                                reputation. I used cheaper brands for a long time and
                                so no results. Two brands that I know of that studies
                                have been done with, and do have very good
                                reputations, are Maximum Milk Thistle
                                (www.liversupport.com) and Thistylin. I have a
                                "subscription" to Maximum Milk Thistle, and a three
                                months supply is automatically shipped to me via UPS
                                every three months. I love it, it's very convenient.
                                I also feel better and my LFTs have gone down since I
                                began taking it. I have also read several studies
                                about vitamin E helping the liver. I take 800IU
                                daily.
                                Did your husband's doctor say how much scar tissue he
                                had? Usually they will give it a score - like stage 1
                                or 2. As for his viral load, if it's only one
                                million, that is not too bad, but it sounds like he
                                had the same lousy viral load test that I just had.
                                Mine stopped counting at one million, so I could have
                                one million and one, or a hundred million. BIG
                                difference. It seems like his doctor would want a
                                better test done before treatment starts, to get an
                                accurate count. It doesn't make any difference with me
                                since I'm not on treatment.
                                Take care,

                                  over a million. We have been so blown away by this all that it has been a

                                    You bet it's overwhelming!!! I was in shock for
                                    months when I found out. I really kept expecting

                                    time to catch your breath, learn, get more
                                    comfortable, have your questions answered, etc. There
                                    is almost NEVER a need to RUSH into anything. Good

                                      Claudine, There is so much to learn. When we went to his Dr. we were in there
                                      for quite a while but left with so many more questions.Why does the
                                      interferon work and once cleared of the virus can it come back ??

                                          Jennifer,
                                          Claudine is right. Find out the vital statistics. Then research. Then ask
                                          us. We've done most of it and will share.
                                          I won't tell you my whole story, but I've been through three rounds of
                                          treatment...all of which failed. Don't be depressed. Researchers are coming
                                          up with new and different things daily. Also, this will get more attention
                                          than HIV did, faster, because it affects health care workers, which is how I
                                          got it.
                                          My failure was not due to lifestyle. I'm just too little to withstand
                                          treatment. And if I don't stop this, the treatment will kill me.
                                          I mostly lurk, but NOW I've really got to lurk. I've got to sell my house
                                          and this is going to be a MAJOR PROJECT!!!!!!! So you guys might not hear
                                          from me for awhile.
                                          Also we're getting a new computer and I don't want to set it up here and have
                                          to repack it and set it up there, too. So if you don't hear anything from me
                                          for awhile, that's why.
                                          Love you my wonderful friends. I pray for each and everyone of you, daily.
                                          Bye Bye for now.
                                          Anne

                                            the year on treatment.....(ha ha) I have been off treatment for 3 1/2
                                            months. It feels good I still get tired. Have gained back all my weight
                                            and more. My hair is coming back but no curl yet I had curly hair. I
                                            went for my 3 month check up still non detectable (yea) but the doctor
                                            said my blood count is low 11 should be 13. So I have to get blood test
                                            and go May 5th I have to go to the hospital and get that thing where he
                                            goes down your throat and looks around I am not worried just a little
                                            concerned. Has anyone else had this done?
