Update on my hep C treatment

Hi all. Here is an update on my Hep C treatment. I am on the new treatment of Sofosbuvir/Ledpasvir and Ribavirin. I started this treatment on 1st April 2015, I had my liver transplant August 2013, and here are my blood results from the start to now. --

01/04/15 - Hep C Viral load = over 58 Million, 2 weeks later on 15/04/15 Hep C viral load = 93!!! and 2 weeks after this on 29/04/15 = 0000 Zero, nil, not detected, zilch !!!!!! yeahh, can you believe it. It took four weeks to clear the Hep C from my system. What a fantastic result. I am so happy. Also my ALT was 336 at the begining and is now 44 !!!.

I am doing very well on the treatment and still have to finish the 12 week course. I have not had any major side affects accept for the obvious ie headaches, tired etc but ok. I hope any one out there still with Hep c is encouraged by this information that there is a cure and can get this treatment ASAP. I will keep you updated as I continue on this treatment in case I get any side affects in the future or if there are any changes. Good luck to everyone out there waiting for a transplant, cure to Hep C and anything else. Keep Positive and keep smiling. :) x
