Hep C Relapse post Tx
Sep 3, 2012

Dr. post tx., if the Hep C virus were to re-appear, and re-infection was not an issue, when will it most likely show up? I believe, as with RVR, if your un-dectectable 30 to 40 days post tx., most likely the tx worked. Is that accurate?


Response from Dr. McGovern

I would say that I have much more confidence in a 12 week post treatment viral load than a 4 week viral load...Relapses could still occur between 4 and 12 weeks.

I wish you a great outcome!!
