Hey Ziggy,

Good to hear from you! It must be nice to see your energy returning, especially when your friends and family see it happening. 

Be sure to let us know those results when you get them. We all have our Dragon stomping dance shoes, at the ready!

I haven't forgotten about you guys.

I think about you all the time.

One more month until my cure date bloodwork test to see if Im cured.

Everyone says I have way more energy now and they can see the difference in me.

I see some new peeps in here.  This is the place to be.  Tig and Canuk are awesome.

Hi Ziggy,

Glad yer back (for now) until the next festival - that does sound like a good trade, what you are doing, "working" the festivals, especially if you have camping down to an art.

How are you feeling?? Are you still smokeless? Hope it was only fun, not too hot, no mud, good food and nice people. smile 

About your pre-treatment labs ... yes, as Tig pointed out, the "FibroMeter" called for these "components" (ALT/AST/GGT) and more. Your other pre-treatment ALT/AST were drawn probably just with a standard version of a LFT "panel" - so, bonus!, you got to see both the ALT/AST result twice (and yes, as STL notes, both sets were fairly close too).

Many of these kinds of tests (or parts of these tests) can help to assess kidney function, liver function, fibrosis ... all good reasons we see proteins being looked at. (For 5's ques. as well) here is more on AlphaMac2, proteins, fibrosis testing, and more:

Way back when, Tig posted a really good review one, all about "proteins" (if you are studying up on things) ... Liver Disease Awareness 101-Globulins

In the "family" of fibrosis testing ... About FibroMeter - another fibrosis test 

More reading ... About fibrosis markers - how they can use Mac-2 blood tests

There are so many tests, for many overlapping reasons ... such as the "FibroSpect" ... About FibroSpect - another fibrosis test

Aside from your labs, let us know what your GGT, AFP, iron sat, ferritin is next time you get tested. I would not be surprised to see some of these staying at a lower level (and/or continuing to drop) compared to what they were pre-treatment. I am not surprised that your high iron load and saturation improved, the same thing happened to me - but I am glad they tested you, thoroughly, as we can see by your pre-treatment labs, to rule out any other reason (genetic or otherwise) for this temporary hemachromatosis abberation. I think your doc is right, your liver already seems to be functioning very well indeed! Aside from letting us know these ongoing labs, let us know what they have planned for you as far as having repeat U/S's and fibroscans.

As far as those other bloods, WCB's, easo's, etc, Tig is right, if they were very odd your doc would be on them, if we watched them from minute to minute they would be fluctuating for a million possible reasons, sometime easo's do with allergic reaction type things too. 

Ah, the new normal, off doing life at neat venues and with NO more bad hitchhikers in tow! biggrin C.

Yes, my blood work BEFORE I started treatment was...

ALP    105 (Normal Range)

ALT    136 H

AST     64 H

~

and the FibroMeter stuff.....

FibroMeter Alanine Aminotransferase ALT     128H

FibroMeter Aspartate Aminotransferase A     66H

FibroMeter Gamma-Glutamyl Trans GGT     64H

~

My Hep C Dr was testing me for other issues such as Hemochromotisis which she swore I had.  After it had all disappeared she was bewildered.  Her statement to me was, "your liver seems to be functioning properly now."  I really don't know what all these blood work terms mean or what they stand for.

Thanks Tig,  Just looked and thought it seemed odd for Ziggy to have two different readings within the same test results. I was curious, but whatever was the case it does make sense getting two different - but close readings.

Hi STL,

My impression of the two different (alt/ast) LFT results are probably because the Fibrotest (Fibrometer) is specifically for determining fibrosis stage. The numbers are specific to that test and were likely ran at different times and/or from different tubes. May have been sent to different labs, too.

Good one Ziggy, sounds like your "work" is great. A Job to kill for.

those blood test knowledgeable folk, with the bloods I am confused by the

BEFORE TREATMENT BLOOD WORK

  • ALT 136
  • AST 64

yet further down they seem to be repeated but with slightly different results.

  • FibroMeter Alanine Aminotransferase 128
  • FibroMeter Aspartate Aminotransferase 66

Are these two different types of test checking for same thing?

Yes Tig,

If there is anything missing out of my blood work thats not posted please let me know.  Or, if there is anything that doesn't make sense. 

Thanks for everything guys.

I'm still around.

Thanks for the information and personal update, Ziggy! Sounds like you had a great time at Festival One and now on to Two! That’s my kind of Summer. Enjoy all that activity while you’re still young, lol! The word WORK makes me want to take a nap, ha.

I‘ll take a look at all those numbers and decipher them best I can. Canuck May beat me to it, but one thing is they look good. The auto easo’s and lymphocytes are a small part of the White blood cell family. They rise and fall with any number of things, colds, flu, infection, too many to count. Your doc will let you know when things aren‘t right and they haven’t, so enjoy the music!

Talk to you soon. Good luck and congratulations again!

Hey guys...I'm back !!!

Canuck:  To answer your question... is it fun to work at my music festivals.  YES IT IS.  I have been doing this for almost 20 years.  These festivals are where you can purchase a ticket and camp out and do nothing but see live bands for the whole weekend.  What I do is volunteer so I don't have to buy a ticket, I work for my ticket.  So, I get there early... I was in a tent for 6 nights.  I work reggae and bluegrass festivals.  This one was a world music fest almost all reggae.  I got to park the vendors on Weds and then do  backstage security on Thursday then I was done with work.  Then I had Fri, Sat and Sun to do my photography and enjoy my bands.  It's a blast.  Music is my passion.

Tig:  Thanks for all your advice, help, tips and etc....

As a review:  I started my first ever Hep C treatment on April 11th, 2018.  Mavyret 8 week treatment.  I had never done a Hep C treatment ever before.  My last day of treatment was June 6th, 2018.  My symptoms were undetectable after the first 4 weeks of treatment as well as the last 8th week of treatment.  I will be tested once again in Sept 2018 to see if I am considered cured.

Here is what you have all been waiting for:

 

BEFORE TREATMENT BLOOD WORK

  • Fibrosis F2
  • VL 9,400,000

  • HCT 50.9
  • Auto Eosinophil Percent 10.4

  • ALT - 29
  • AST - 22
  • Ferritin Level - 227

I still need to learn more about my bloodwork and what this all means.

I'll be back in Sept to post again.

I am heading out for a week in a tent for 6 nights working one of my music festivals.  Remember?  I didn't want to start the treatment before the summer cause I work at music festivals?  Well, I will be gone for a week.  Leaving Monday at midnight, by myself, truck packed, 5 hour drive.  

I PROMISE... when I get back I will post ALL my 8 week blood work results and update you all on every thing, etc...

You all are awesome.

Everything was still undetected and in normal range but I will still post it all like I always do.

I'll make a video too of my vacation.

Be back in a week...  Peace,

Ziggy...

I hope you continue to feel great and I want you to expect even more improvements along the way. Slow and steady progress is something to look forward to. Enjoy it, you’ve earned your Dragon merit badge! I’m looking forward to all the good news! smile

BTW Zig,

A few things I meant to catch up on with you! : )

That movie about Chocolat ... hm , sounds familiar but don;t think I have seen it - NOW i will HAVE to google up the trailer and see which/what you refer to, to be sure. It is kinda ringing a bell for me tho - I'll check. 

Funny that, that a character in it has the nomenclature as I. wink 

Obs too, in fact, made me aware of a famous or infamous "crow" of the same name! (Note Obs's avatar - may tell ya why she knows crows on a first name basis)?

Seems I keep good company, in name.

I am curious about your "champix" review, not the whole experience (you did convey that well), but expressly only how you felt "drug-wise" while you were on Champix - I know they ramp the dose up the first week and then you are on 2 mg total per day (1 -1 mg tab in AM and 1 - 1 mg tab in PM) - how did the drug make you "feel", and did you note ANY useful effect (such as the drug making you "forget" to smoke, or lessen the "thought or urge" to smoke)?

I am not sure we ever talked about your MRI again - did you ever get to read your report on that, or did the doc mention any result from it - I forget if you covered this already.

Also, aside from eosinophils that were a bit elevated, did you say that EVERYTHING else has come to be within norm limits? I know your Iron and sat. level normalized, and of course your LFT's are great. What is your AFP now? Do I recall you saying there was still some "other" blood out of wack? - maybe not.

Lovely days ahead for you, with 2 less things, things you do not need (at ALL!) - no more hep c and no cigs. Yay! biggrin C.

congratulations,smile hurray and yippee- yahoo  

I can relate about not being forced to eat until youre good and ready...I am one of those people who consider coffee to be a major food, and was very relieved to be able to return to my cappuccino and ciggy breakfast after treatment.

Youre brave and strong to have given up the cigarettes.

Well, today is my last day I took treatment.

8 weeks of Mavyret which I started on April 11th, 2018 and today is June 5th, 2018.

My viral load was undetected after the 4th week of treatment.

I have a doctors apt tomorrow to congratulate me on finishing and to take another lab to check blood work.  Then again in Sept to see if I am cured.

I will post the results next week.

I completed this treatment with no side effects.  No headaches, no nausea.  Plenty of water.

I did however notice a very mildness of itchy skin...very mild, less during the second month of treatment.  And also, periodically, a flash of a tightness, numbness, tingleness in the face.

So glad I don't have to make full blown out breakfasts at 9:30 in the morning anymore.  I can not eat till I'm hungry now and lose all this weigh I put on.  YAY.

Plus....It's been 2 months without a cigg.  That's a miracle.

I'll post next week with dr apt and blood work results.

YIPPIE, I DONE.

Good Morning,

I have the next three days off from work.  Getting ready to make my breakfast of the day and take my first three MAVYRET pills of this first new ride journey of my first Hep C treatment ever.  Drinking my ice water already.

This was not the way I wanted to do my spring fever.  lol

I'll keep you all posted.

BTW:  This is a continuation thread from my first one in NEW MEMBERS.  For some reason I can't post the link.

Two tablespoons of peanut butter (32 g) contain 15 grams fat. Who doesn't like peanut butter? It would seem a convenient low carb solution.

Hey Ziggy,

The advice and recommendations are sound. Some medications, these in particular, have been shown to be better absorbed when consumed with a higher fat meal. As Scruffy said, the old drug Incivek required it to be taken with 20grams of fat 4X daily. By the end of that course of care, people could barely choke down the fat and pills required to succeed. Look up Incivek here on the forum, it’s an eye opener for a Stephen King novel.

I suggest find a few things you really enjoy, that has some additional fat to it and switch them up several times a week. I suggest a Dairy Queen gift card with your name on it, lol! There are some suggestions in our nutrition section that you can drink, if food doesnt appeal to you. There are several smoothies that might help.

Hang in there Warrior! You’re getting closer with each day. It’s absolutely worth it!

Hiya Zig

Way back when I was treating one of my meds had to be taken with 20grams of fat. It was noted during the study that people with a higher fat diet responded better. Seemed like the fat delivered more of the med to the liver.

I had to make sure I consumed 20grams of fat  four times a day with that med (one of three meds). So may I suggest maybe those little Jimmy Deans sausage biscuits at 9:30 am. Or a little high fat Ice cream with your coffee biggrin

Good luck to you

Keep your eye on the prize

Scruffy

Hey Zig,

See page 1 of monograph - says take with food - (this is good advice just based on the principal that you may find this "easier" on your stomache), but with further reading you may note about how a "moderate fat containing meal" may be best and important for full absorbtion of the drugs - I think we spoke of this before. https://www.rxabbvie.com/pdf/mavyret_pi.pdf

You have been doing the right thing, as the priority is consistent time of day dosing, "with food" (not just a drink and a piece of fruit) and definitely not on an empty stomache (as per monograph and as per you mentioning some gastic symptoms even with food) - it's not to be taken on a empty stomache, nor does it insist you take it with a 7 course meal - just a "moderate fat content meal" will do (and of course lots of water all day long). wink C.

Well guys...5th week Mayvret done.  2 more weeks to go.

Although I have noticed some late night heartburn with this shipment, which I didn't have with the first box of 4 week shipment.

Also...I have gained some weight here within the last 2 months due to eating food at 930am so I can take my pills.  This is irritating.  I never eat at this time of day but I chose it due to consistency.  It is the most consistent time for me...on the way to work with breakfast.  Normally I don't really eat food until lunch...but lunch is always different times.  Oh well...too late now.  QUESTION:  When it says take with food...does it mean a full blown out breakfast or can I just take the pills with a banana and my chai tea on the way to work every morn???  I have been eating breakfast out, doing the buffets at the local cafes, etc...  The pounds have been put on.  Hope I can take them off for bathing suit spring fever time.  lol

All in all..so far so good.  How are you guys doing.  Hope you all have a great Memorial Day Weekend.

Serum iron is tied to ferritin levels. You have probably had various "genetic" blood tests to rule out "genetically caused" hemochromatosis, as well as bloods tests looking more solely at your iron levels. You would have likely had many or some of these tests (repeatedly) ... look in your records for previously abnormal results under RBC's, such as hgb, platelets (they may have been a bit high too, but maybe not), look for serum iron, ferritin, TIBC (stands for either Total Iron Binding Capacity or Transferrin Iron Binding Capacity), UIBC, transferrin or transferrin saturation. (Some labs have competely dif categories/areas where they group or provide these results, so you would have to have a read through your labs to find them. They don't just look at iron or ferritin alone when investigating you - your old labs in sig. line indicated pre-treatment "ferritin 360" (which wasn't too, too bad) and "high iron". To investigate you further I am sure they did some of these other tests as well. The good news is that your current labs (which you indicated ALL were within normal limits!smile), iron level normal at 132 and iron saturation normal at 37%, would  indicate you are not having this iron overload problem anymore!

Some of my pre-treatment TIBC saturation levels ranged quite widely, up to 65-80% range, my hgb was fairly high, and I had some other funny RBC morphology, aside from high ferritin levels - they all quite quickly normalized after cure - these iron load abberations CAN just happen simply in response to your liver not being able to function properly while you are having HCV, but they generally rule out other genetic causes, and follow the iron load to ensure it does return to proper levels/balance again. 

Bet ya a million bucks your iron load worries are over now. C.

ah, the sweet, sweet delight of success! Worth everything.

Your ferritin is about what mine is now! That came down so very quickly for you! - I am glad for that, just like I am SO happy (for you) that you got to see such profound lab improvements (all round) SO quickly! My pre-treatment ferritin level was bothering me too (among all the other abnormal labs that were bothering me!), but my ferritin (post-treatment) did come down and normalized, probably all of it's own accord, I tried some tactics to try NOT accumulate any more iron into my system (cause I had a spell to go, from the time my pre-treatment ferritin was disovered high, to when i would get HCV treatment) so i just adopted a new diet and kept it up pre-treatment, through treatment and then post-treatment, until my ferritin finally started to come down. No idea if anything I did had any actual great effect, or if simpy being cured of HCV allowed nature to right things. I figure my diet did not harm, and the cure can take 100% of the credit. 

I can imagine you have been doing a little dancing and clicking heels. Enjoy these milestones, knowing you got it beat. Feels great doesn't it, a relief to know all is working. (Stupendously for you too!)

Lovely to hear you news today! You are right, it IS all simply amazing. Good, good news. smile C.

OMG  You guys... I have such GREAT NEWS for ya all.

First, My blood work from May 9th has come back which was exactly 4 weeks of Mavyret treatment.

The virus is UNDETECTED in my body.  Plus, EVERYTHING else is in NORMAL RANGEbiggrin  Amazing.  The new miracle Hep C drug treatments are on the rise for sure.  I just feel bad for the ones whom it's not working for.  furious  I am so sorry.

They thought for sure that I had Hemochromatosis due to the MRI results and have referred me to a Liver doctor from Stanford.  But, the blood work states it's all negative.  Awesome news for me.  Man, Hep C really ****s up and effects everything in your body!

If you view my biography you can view my older blood work results, the week before I started treatment.

 ~

Here are my results now after 4 weeks treatment:

ALT 24

AST 14

Iron Level 132

Iron Saturation 37%

Hemochromatosis - All Negative

Chemistry - All Normal

Coagulation - All Normal

Immunology - NOT DETECTED

Hematology - All normal except for:  Auto Eosinophil Percent 11.2 H (This is always high.  They think it's allergies?)

The Auto Eosinophil Percent is the ONLY thing that was high, abnormal, in red, out of wac on my blood work.  AMAZING!

My ALT & AST have never been in the normal range for the 10 years since I knew I had HEP C.

~

So, let's hope that in Sept when they do the 3 months after treatment blood work that everything stays normal.  I am still concerned about what long term side effects this medication may have, but not having Hep C may be worth the risk.

I have 3 more weeks to go and I am done.

Special Thanks to:  TigRLSCanuck.    Hey Canuck, where are you chicky?

Anything else you guys want to know just ask.  Is there something I am missing in my update?  Any other questions?  Ask away.  biggrin

Thanks for the birthday wishes guys.

Ziggy

Hey Tigs,

Yeah, that's old news now.

When I cold turkey'd ciggs and Chantix at the same time... it was not good. It was very hard on me. I began to have a small rash on my face. I thought it was an allergic reaction to quitting the Chantix cold turkey, so I went to the emergency room. It was a very minor rash and you could not even see it. Only I knew it was there.  I had a patch of bumps under my skin on my cheek. I was diagnosed with the probability of THE BEGINNING of Shingles. No, I have never had that before. I got it before it became an official diagnosis. It never even got to the stage where it hurt. Everyone says it's painful?

Anyway, This was the week before I started my first dose of Mavyert.  When I went to my Hep C Doctor with my fed ex box of first month supply of Mayvert, she didn't even care that I had the shingles.  I wanted to postpone the Mavyret till the Shingles went away entirely. 

It was in this thread... https://hepcfriends.activeboard.com/t64382599/greetings-im-new/  (Greetings, I'm New) thread.

I'll be back after May 9th to post my 4 WEEK CELEBRATION test results.  

YIPPIE..

Hey,

First I heard you had an outbreak of shingles! Oh dear. So when did that start and are you still having it? I knew about the skin itchiness, (as a seperate item, and how the itchiness did not really have a rash to go with it to speak of) and you mentioned you were coping with that itchiness OK, but I had no idea you had a shingles outbreak! How bad was this shingles episode, where was it, and how do you know (for sure) it WAS shingles, have you had shingle outbreaks before? Did you diagnose yourself (as having shingles) or did you see any doc about this bout of shingles?? Did you happen to mention it, or show it to the ER doc, or was the back pain the priority that was being dealt with?

Man,  you are TOO hard on yourself girl! Too much physical work and you are paying for it big time now - so sorry about that, you did get a small cornucopia of drugs from that ER doc, so I am glad you went to the ER - trust his judgement that it was compatible with MAV. Ya, I'll say that's rare, for an ER doc to call you to follow up - nice guy!

Just make sure you drink extra water to help keep flushing all the drugs (and extra drugs) out of your body. Too bad you had such a "number" happened to your back and that you have to go back to work tomorrow! Wish you had some further rest/recoup/repair time for your back.

The shingles IS an important item to mention to your hep doc when you see him, (if he was not already aware of your shingles outbreak) I am sure he will make a note of it. I am assuming and hoping the shingles is resolved or is resolving now? If not, show it to some doc!

aw, kitties, I miss mine too, she was 18. aww C.

Hey guys,

Sorry, I have been distant.  Been going on with life.

Doing GREAT on Mavyret no side effects.

My 4th week appointment is May 9th, the day after my birthday.  (Good guess on the date Canuk).  I will wait until then to post my MRI results and new bloodwork results after next week.  

Just wanted you to know that I have had a rough couple of months.  First the shingles brake out from all the stress from cold turkey the ciggs and Chantix at the same time.  Then, my back went out, pulled ligament or muscle in lower back.  Muscles spasms?  Today was the second day out of bed after being in bed for a week due to not being able to walk.  I think it's from all the yard work I have been doing.  I rototillered with the small mantis roto tiller by myself last week, been lifting and re potting heavy plants from the winter, I weed eated the whole back yard by myself, raking, etc.  You get the picture.  I must of did something to my back.  Boy, I tell ya... you realize what we take for granted when we can't walk.  I feel for people whom have back issues all the time. 

Anyway, was in the emergency room all day and wanted to tell you what they gave me.  They gave me a shot in the butt of an anti inflammatory called, Tramadol and a Norco 10 and sent me home with a IB Profen 600 perscription.  Emergency doctor said it was okay with the Mavyert.  Just wanted to check with you guys as well.  Also, can I use a back pain patch called, Lidodern Lidocaine Patch 5% while being on Mavyret?  Tomorrow is my first day back to work and I'm still kind of hunched over like an old lady.  But at least I can get out of bed and cook in the kitchen now or go to the bathroom without screaming... furious

Can you believe the emergency room doctor called me the next day to see how I was doing ???!!!  THEY NEVER DO THAT.  It was wonderful that he did that and told him so as well.

I normally have no health issues like this.  Why is all of this happening?  Sheesh... You turn 50 and everything hits you at once?

So that is my update.  Next week I'll have results for ya.  I am doing AWESOME with the Mavyret.  Just some itchy skin but nothing else.  It's wonderful.  Other than the hurting my back freak incident I am feeling great and not even that tired and fatigue like I use to be all the time.

I haven't smoked a cigg in over a month.  I guess I can officially say that I have quit smoking.  WOW.  Amazing.

PS:  My new avatar is my cat ZIGGY that lived to be 15 years old.  He was the love of my life.  I had to put him down a few years ago.  Now, you know where my name Ziggy came from.  biggrinbiggrin

Yay Ziggy,

Glad all is going quite well, and glad your MRI is getting done. Good you are lined up to see the doc after ths MRI (this will be at about the 2 week-ish mark of your treatment), so maybe he will have you draw bloods as well? Or, maybe he will draw bloods at the 4 week mark, about May 9? We'll see.

Good you keep us posted. smile C.
