Yep, that would be a pic of me, many moons ago (what I would have looked like wavin at ya from across the Lake) from when I used to live in Terana.

Image result for white out at lake

Hey BTW hahahahahaha, I jes noticed sumpin - below i wrote about having "glob"smacking moments, I'll have you know i did not just make that up, being glob-smacked is waaaaay more severe a condition up here in BC, than simply being gob-smacked, it affects spelling and everything! hee hee wheee!

Ya, me too upstate ... for me the easiest date to recall will always be the diagnosis date of July 2015 (but, that is not to say some of the other dates subsequent to that were NOT equally momentous and definitely more joyously noteworthy)! biggrinBut ya, the glob-smacking moments are imprintable.

So, if all you got was the 4 week UND and the EOT UND, subsequently you should have had an EOT+12 weeks VL and LFT's, and perhaps an EOT+24week VL and LFTs, to "officially" document your SVR12 and SVR24, therefore in May you SHOULD definitely ask them to include your lacking VL and LFT's (they likely will/should without asking), as "normally" you SHOULD have already had at least one set of these done (since EOT). I'm a little surprised they did not ask you to have the SVR12 one done.

As well, it is a good thing, if you ask for (or get) a repeat ultrasound, regardless that your last U/S looked OK. All these kinds of specific things are just good follow-up practise.

Same for any repeat fibrosis type blood tests, it's good to see everything remains boringly normal or has improved! It's good news and good feedback, rewarding, to know (for all you have been through) to see concretely how successful your all your work has been.

I look forward to every single repeat boringly normal follow-up test i get, I do a little celebrating, everytime!

What ya'll been up to since EOT? We shoveled 'bout 3 inches of snow off our property this AM, same s----, dif day! Then, out for another one of our (short) forced-march health walks in the snow. Hope your Fall/Winter has been funner.biggrinC.

hehe..
good thought Canuck...
Interesting how the diagnosis date is much more firmly imprinted on me...man, it was a shocker..
By the time I had my EOT + 4 weeks draw in beginning of September and all was good ( ALT...16 AST....23 and my Doc then bid me adieu) I was much more seasoned and dates and events weren't as momentous and imprint worthy...
SVR is perhaps more celebrate-able.... and I'm sure i'll be aware in another few months...especially 'cause I'm thinking it through just now...
Canuck...followup stuff is just a complete physical, with blood work in May...original liver scan didn't show much abnormality so no new scoping...phew...

Looking back...that was an action packed year...

There's certainly more peace of mind in my life 110 weeks after getting that great SVR news (provided my blood draw from yesterday yields a UND result). My Tx followup consist of blood test and imaging (Alternating between MRI / US) every 6 months. I feel confident my US results from yesterday will show continued recovery. Good to hear from you Bruce!

Hey! Hi ya upstate.smile

Ya, like Tig, I'm very glad to see a post and update from you here again.

It's always so good to hear from my fellow-velparized and well-cured epclusian friends. It's an exclusive membership, this particular vel "Club 0" is.

Glad to hear you ruminating about your milestones, what a dif a year can make eh? No dust on demshoes.

But you had me confused again (it doesn't take much! heehee). At first, I thought you were checking in with your 1 year SVR.

So's I sets off a-countin on my finners.

If your EOT was Aug 2017, you had your EOT+12 week SVR about Nov, and now - about Feb 2018 would be your SVR+24 week SVR, right?

We will always look forward to your thoughts and news, always, anytime, but I will also be looking forward to your 1 year SVR coming this Aug! Now that I got that straight in my head!

So, obviously your are UND, but DID you have a VL drawn, just about now, for the EOT+24 week mark?

What kind of follow-up has been planned for you - will you get a repeat ultrasound, a fibroscan, or do you have any new ALTs/ASTs or fibrosis type-blood tests to share? Just nosey.

Glad to hear from you.smileC.

Hey all...

One year ago tonight I got the phone call with the hep c diagnosis...

Wife and I sat on the couch for a long time waiting for the call, and then a long time after trying to figure it all out..

After my twelve weeks of epclusa, I've pretty much kicked that dust off my shoes, and I don't think about it all that much.

But, I haven't thrown the baby out with the bathwash, and I visit the forum and think of you guys still 'cause I can't forget the support, info and confidence I gleaned from you guys..

All good here now, as I hope it is with you all...

Peace

Bruce
