Just to let everyone know if I haven't told you already
I begin my treatment on 22 January - Harvoni
Finished treatment 12 weeks later in April undetected on 12 week blood test
July 7 2016 Final virology test shows SVR...HCV undetected....this means I am cured.
I have had HCV since 1977 I am genotype 1b treatment naive
With Fibroscan 11.5 borderline cirrhosis compensated
I have hypothyroidism, lichen schlerosis and fatigue, bad indigestion(fatty food) , brain fog ... all linked to HCV
I will keep a post of how my treatment progresses during the 3 months... and would love it if anyone else being treated during this year let us know how their treatment is going and what their viral load and side effects are during and after?!
2016-The Year of the Cure!!!
As of July 7, 2016 after 12 weeks on Harvoni
I remain HCV free so I am CURED!!
All my LFT are in well within normal range
No yellow tinge no indigestion ...GONE!
Not one bout of fatigue, brain fog, ..energy levels are and remain high since week 2 of treatment..I am in the PINK....
Liver scan and follow up in October to address the damage after the cure...I remain optimistic!
