I began the Peg/combo Jan. 2002, after week 4 my PCR came back
non-detectable. I'm a genotype 2b, and last biopsy showing grade 1-2, mild
inflammation/fibrosis, no real change from my initial biopsy. Pre-treatment
viral load was 8443400 IU/ML. I am 39 years old, female, weight elevated.
I actually have 2 questions. My doctor has advised me that the latest
length of treatment course is 48 weeks, even for my genotype. I would
appreciate any info you can provide as I am leaning towards 24 weeks.
Also would you recommend a repeat PCR @ 12 weeks, as my doctor has stated no
need to check again until just prior to the end of my treatment.
