Clear Of Virus

Hi everyone.

I was diagnosed with HepC about 16 month ago. Started treatment of 24 weeks duration (Ribovirin and Pegylated Interferon) 12 months ago and have just had the results of my bloods/virus count and been informed that there was no detectable virus present.

Its been a bit of a rollercoaster ride but now I'm out the otherside and life looks a lot more positive than it did a year ago.

Just want to say that being diagnosed with HCV isn't a death sentence. With new drugs on the horizon, there is now more hope of higher success rates.

Want to thank the specialist Heptatology nurses (especially Diane) at Southampton Gerneral Hospital for their continued support and motivation during the last year.
