I was treated for acute help c and given epculusa for 12 weeks it still is showing in recent blood work that I have the antibody .I am not under Drs care but obviously I will call asap my question is does this mean the medication did not work. I'm told different stories one that it did and I'm just a carrier of the antibody and the other I was told is need to go on medication 1 more time harvoni this time
First of all, once you are exposed to the virus, you'll always have antibody in your blood. So the antibody doesn't mean the medication didn't work. Secondly, to test for "cured" , it means no virus is detected in your blood, this is done by a test called SVR which is run 3 months after treatment is completed. Lastly, Hep-c is a serious liver problem, you should get support from a medical practitioner.
