WOW, WOW, WOW RC!!!!!!!!

Talk about going 0 to 60, in reverse!

Man oh man, beauty ALT's keep happening, so fast too, just what we like  biggrin ... from last 160 down to 31! HO-LI-COW! And a lovely little AST to go right along with it, AST 19 to 16 now! What a far cry from where you started. Im-press-ive!

Man THAT has to feel very, very good! - as well as those staples out - good grief, 68 staples, you'd think NO one could bust out of that! 

I agree "ahhhhh that's better" (for the ALT) and another "ahhhhh that's better!" (for the staple freedom).

Yer rollin', rollin', rollin' RC. Oh how I love Gilead. C.

They adjusted my meds a little.And last but not least my LFT's results after just 14 days on VOSEVI

As I'm just sitting around recovering from my L/T (30) days ago now, I have had plenty of time to surf this forum,Look back on some of the early Dragon Slayer's and there battles. You early dragon slayer's fought so hard, went through so much- The drugs used just  a few years ago were harsh,and the S/X were worst than the virus sometimes. We get knocked down and we get back up again with even more determination to kill the beast! We fight fight fight to the end.We won't let go,its not in our nature,we are warriors,we don't quit,we will be victorious. We truley are the champions . I'm proud to be amounst warriors like you!  RC

Oh my RC! THAT is quite a suitcase of pills you have there in that photo! Unreal. But very real. I can't help but think of the "village" that helped to pack that suitcase, and our one brave guy who is "unpacking it". From the scientists/researchers and docs on your team (for years, no for decades!) who helped you well-pack it with most brilliant life saving things they could dream of, to the rest of us who can only wish from the sidelines to make your journey easier, all of us are the well meaning village who wants to support you to the best of our abilities. 

Man, isn't modern medicine and science grand!

Never, EVER did I think they could bottle "hope", but they have! Gilead, in the OR, and that donor and family - all miracles. 

Brother, the pill count is astounding, I bet your laxatives or other OTC things aren't even in those Mon thru Sun boxes! So, "is it tinnitus ... or just your phone alarm" that you keep hearing. Memorex moments.

Hey - here I was, thinking it was my lowly suggestion for a benign glycerine sup that finally helped (in the end) when you were so bunged up, I see you had some other "I'm not foolin around" therapy to get ya sorted. Hope things are naturally regular now?

How's the diuretic/water retention thing going now?

Sure glad to hear you got a couple more z's the other night, I wish I could give you mine, I would if I could.  Ever tried a miniscule dose of SL Ativan in an emergency like, once in a blue moon, when you have hit the sleep-deprivation wall?

Really appreciate it, that you keep us so well posted, and impressed no end with your performance (on every level)!, and that you insist on taking care of us as well!

You are number one at the moment. Hope you (both of you) are having a good-sleep kind of night tonight. C.

I'm anxious to hear the next results, too. I expect good news, I feel it! The LFT's are improving, that's an excellent sign! Keep it up but keep it nice and slow!

I did a long walk today. .6 miles or four long blocks. I'm taking it easy today-not rushing anything. Last night I slept pretty good- about 6.5 hours a little broken up. Felt more refreshed today.  I got a message from my Hep Dr.-They want to do a two wheek viral load. (14 days) into treatment. Im Having it Wednesday. Can't wait to get those results. I'm waiting for results from a blood draw on Sunday I want to see how the LFT's are doing.That test will show how its going just 6 days into treatment. I'm hoping they are both really low- That would be a awesome sign.   We will see.RC

 Edit: Below are last Sunday's LFT's     These are the latest results. That 19 looks good!!

Edit:   ast 19.    Alt 160.

I'm 10 days into my Polaris 5 trial.  I can't beleave is already been ten days. I'm on so many drugs I coulden't tell you if I were having any S/X from the VOSEVI   My phone alarm is going off all day long Reminding me to medicate . Not sleeping very well.Each day As the incision heals and the abdomen muscles heal and grow back together things get/feel bette. I can't roll on my side yet, way too painful. Try sleeping in one position all night!  I'm not complaining.You just would have thought this Vosevi train would have had a sleeping car!!

Check out the daily pill box   Check out the bottle of VOSEVI        RC

Yay RC!

More than halved!!! your ALT, and the bottom just dropped out of that AST, in one fell swoop? In just 5 days, wow, just imagine! I agree with Tig they should put sparkles on those drab coloured pills! Their Kent Clarke beige-i-ness belies their magical powers.

So your SOT Aug 29, makes your your week 4 on Sept 26? So, no PCR's until next week? (the end of week 2 maybe)? Oh we can't wait to see the demise of this foul virus which has wreaked such havoc for you - it is happening as we speak thank goodness! All of us are spellbound with your good fortune RC.

What an incredible endeavour you have been going through, none of us could begin to imagine all that you are and have been subjected to, nor the new opportunities you have gained. Tough as nails you and your lady are.

How is the new "housey" set-up going, I hope the excertions are only slow and steady, on purpose.

Good some staples are out, ya on insurance steri-strips! Good your evil tasting liq drug has now morphed to a pill. Big and small blessings, we cherish everyone of them that makes anything easier for you RC. So, the phenomenal daily pill count, being what ... 24 doses of this and that, must be a daunting timetable task to swallow! I am estactic to hear they are dropping your prednisone dose, as that is one of the drugs you indicated you could "feel". Amidst all the accoutrements and mixed "bag" of pills you must take, can you even discern what dif the vosevi feels like - very well could be hard to tell!

So, how have you been handling your required water consumption and how's the bowel regularity now. Are you nice and regular now? You mentioned some pedal edema, and some abd. distention, are those things and regularity becoming more copasetic now? And I wonder how you have been fairing with your blood sugars, all in all, being that you were having some troubles with your food intake and fluctuating appetite.

So, little miss-but-in-ski, worries a lot about healing/restorative sleep. This "half and half" up and down sleep thing you have tended to do for so long ... have you (or would you and your docs) EVER consider adding yet another "occasional" (rare-like) pill. Maybe strictly on a "I can't function on one more night like this of insufficient sleep", maybe just one "odd" dose , just an emergency ration, on something teeny-tiny, like .5 mg of Ativan SL to coax you back to sleep during one of these mid-night awakenings?

Here you are, with your very brave and gutsy demeanor, making us feel better about all you have had to go through - a real bro and hero to us. 

You're doing it!, you are finally getting better! C.

Hi all.   Had a good visit yesterday with the Dr.  Were backing off the prenazone to 15mg. Changed one liquid crappy tasting yellow antibiotic to a pill that will do the same thing as the yellow stuff. Thats a great victory for me. I dont mind all the other med's,its just that one liquid antibiotic,it's foul tasting. The blood draw we were going over looks really good. After just 5 vosevi my LFT's are dropping fast.  ALT from 348 to 160      AST from 151 to 19    Thanks VOSEVI.  This stuff is kicking the dragons ass. We will do a Quant count possibly next week.I expect to be UND at the next blood draw .  Thats a switch from my last two trials. It took 9 weeks to go UND on the first trial (sof/riba X16 weeks)and the second trial it took 7 weeks or so.  (Sof/riba/peg X12 weeks)  On the  POLARIS 5 trial I'm on (VOSEVI X 12weeks) the LFT's are coming down fast. Cant wait to see the numbers from the next blood draw. They took out about 1/4 of the staples, I  sterry striped those spots,and a few other spots, im not taking any chances. My blood work did not show any signs of rejection, everything is on track.  Im feeling better and stronger each day.   Talk to you all later.  RC

Check in with the results, RC. I'm curious to know what they are, too. Hopefully you can get those staples out today. I imagine they must be getting a tad bit tender by now. You had a significant incision, no doubt. Anything that starts at your throat, goes to your belly button and then around to each kidney, must be tender! Steady as she goes, Mate!

Good day all-   Im heading to the Liver Center to go over the results of Sunday's blood draw. They diden't call me yesterday so i suspect everything is on track. It was 3 weeks ago today I got my transplant liver. We seem to have hit it off pretty well. Its doing its job and im doing my job- Meds on time- taking it easy to let things heal up. No rejection so far. The Dr's tell me that I most likely will have some rejection at some point, but that they can knock it down fast and easy. I'm not going to reject anything!!  No way.  I think the zipper comes off today?

Im feeling good, can't believe it's been 3 weeks. It has not been easy by any means-but it could have been a lot worst.   RC

Dang right! You aren't traveling no track nor train by your lonesome! I'll be in the Club Car, along with everyone else, the tab's on me! If'n you need help getting up those stairs, Canuck said she'd pick you up and throw you over her shoulder. She's one of those tough, strong lumberjack types Canada is known for. I'm better suited to swimsuits and sun tan oil. I traded in my muscle for Coppertone and a beer belly... biggrin

Oh, RC, I remember well the great comfort you gave me, seeing me off on my Vosevi journey last year. I too was feeling quite alone at times while waiting for and then getting on the train, and all those trips to the trial, I never did identify/meet any of my trial mates - there were only 5 seats! Small train, and they didn't let me sit down in the car very long either! And as you put it, back then, I was lucky to pull the right straw, the short "a little dab 'll do ya" 8 week Vosevi triple arm vs the 12 week arm without vox.

I will keep you company, we all will!, we'll be in the caboose checking on things.

Enjoy the quiet while you can, a roomy first class private seat, put your feet up for a leisurely 12 weeks of triple magic.

Maybe "Dax" will end up jumping on your train at the end, or maybe he'll get on the next train after? 

So, one poke ot two today? One I hope. : )  C.

RC, 

        ... "I will get to SVR this time" ....

YES, you will!! You got the just right magic combo now, the best drugs and the loveliest equipment to do it with.

Full steam ahead - I love your powerful avatar.

Happy labs tomorrow, you said you were having a draw on a Sunday? Hope they get it first poke.

Gonna be a lot of excited people around here if we glean any downward LFT/VL trends this early. Fingers and toes and everything crossed for ya, but it is early days, day 5?, but hey, we all hope there are some indications that it is already starting. It HAS started, labs will catch up, if not this set, then the next or the next, I am sure.

It WILL happen!

We are all willing it! with every fiber of our being. xo C.

After two train rides , first one being sof/riba,second one being sof/riba/peg , I'm ready to get started on my third and last treatment. It's going to be 12 weeks of VOSEVI.  Im riding on the Rescue-Salvage train to SVR. Why did the first two treatments fail? I beleave it's because of my old livers cirrhosis. Too many places for the virus to hide in a cirrhotic  liver. 

I was always pushing for treatment, but looking back i think even the third treatment may not have worked because of my stiff hard cirrhotic liver.  

So it's out with the old, and in with the new (liver that is). My second chance liver is young,in perfect shape And there is no cirrhosis. The VOSEVI will have no problem seeking and distroying  Type 3 HCV  in my system and especially my new liver- no place to hide!!

I started VOSEVI last Tuesday 8-29-17. I take one a day for 12 weeks. I'm taking it every day at 5pm. I'm so grateful for this new liver, and VOSEVI treatment. I will get to SVR this time.   RC
