I talked to my nonVA MD-he says they should be scooping-up folks like me in order to create a vaccine from the antibodies I carry. He thinks it's all about Big Pharma wanting to keep people on expensive treatments. From what you know,does that sound true-probable? Thanks -MarkView Thread
OK......VA called "no viral load" I'm not sure how it works,but I asked the important stuff. I don't have hcv I won't get it in the future(unless I do something to get it), and I cannot transmit. I really don't understand,but I asked them to mail anything they have explaining. OH-she said,that I was exposed to hcv at some point. I don't get that either.... I do thank our Creator who has Blessed me again. If you know any more about this,I would love to know. I will get back to you with anything more I learn. HCV community still in bookmarks! Thankyou,a bunchView Thread
Thank You Tiff-"We" are much more settled down about transmission. Decided after all this time,no reason to change what has been working,and keeping us happy. Some things need more attention to detail,and we will learn 'as we go'. YOU have been very helpful,and kept me from running with the 'bad' stuff. For a short time there I was wading in"what have I caused now!" see ya View Thread
Hi Friends-Keeping you posted.....Yes antibodies present. Another blood draw tomorrow. All I really got out of the conversation was,"check for replicating". I'm sure I'll pick-up more info tomorrow,definitely when results come in. yippee skippee,View Thread
