Amazing,fantastic,fabulous news!! 🌈🦄

Hey beautiful people❤️ amazing news! So I’m halfway though 8 weeks of treatment on Maviret type 3a. I went to the hospital today to pick up the next 4 weeks of treatment and I got the results of my 2 weeks bloods. My viral load had dropped from over 8 million to 10!😱

I already knew before going the hospital today it was gone! This past week I’ve been imagining the nurse telling me it’s cleared I wasn’t expecting it to be this quick though😀💃🎉

My advice to anyone going threw treatment do what ever you have too to keep your spirts up! A positive attitude is what will see you through.

And if there is any of you waiting to start your treatment on Maviret stop worrying! I have felt far worse off of antibiotics, anti depressants and diabetes medication.Fatigue is all I’ve felt and you already know what that is like.💪

These new drugs are a miracle I’m so unbelievably grateful!! After 16 years of hell I get my life back and can now finally well and truly put the past behind me.

Because for me in 2002 in rehab picking up the pieces of a broken life to get the diagnosis was a real kick in the teeth. For me getting a diagnosis was like receiving a death sentence I drank and partied too the excess for many years. I figured what the hell it was gonna kill me anyway.It was always there hanging over me spoiling any little bit of happiness I found and I never felt clean! I was foolish and I’m so very lucky to come out unscathed .Normal fibro scan 5 point something and no scaring.

For any of you waiting for treatment keep the faith your time will come! Treatment time has really speeded up🌈

I’m feeling so lucky I’ve come the bingo 🤣🤣Although I already feel like I’ve won the Lottery today🙌💃🎈Yes I know my posts are long🤣I always did have far to much to say for myself🙄

A massive thank you to all of you for the support Love and light Cathy

Yup, get a second go of getting my health back. It's times like this I'm grateful for NHS and the country I live in. I'm so glad I have this site as their isn't alot of info about this drug on internet, it's really spurred me on. Onwards n onwards. This tablet may help me sleep better as I've had trouble for a while. I'm in good position and am not working just now so I can focus on myself. Happy days😊

Aww that’s lovely Shell ❤️ I went so many years with it alone. That now all’s I want to do is help others going through the same.I only found this group myself a couple of months ago.I only wish I’d found this group years ago.I hate to think that so many people are suffering alone and in silence.Hopefully more people find us. Best of luck to you too! Love and light. Xxxx

I think we are all the same she’ll, the disease is awfull,to cope with you can’t speak about it ,so it’s good on here talking openly about it to fellow sufferers who know first hand what it’s like they are all nice people and all willing to help people open up about it it really does help to get it off your chest 🙂 hope to see more of you here too,have a good evening x

Not everyone does I was tested through out so was lucky as some people have to wait till the end of treatment 👎 do you know what genome type you are? Xx

Hi yes i had my labs done 4 weeks into treatment.i should know the results of that test soon.i was told i have geno type 1a. What type did you have?what kind of side effects did you have?

I had type 3a I didn’t really have any side effects just fatigue mostly in the first 2 weeks.Everyone is different I know some people had nausea I was lucky. I actually enjoyed going through treatment as it was quite a spiritual journey for me and I felt like I was healing all areas of my life. The best advice I can give is to stay positive and do things that you enjoy. And make plans for after treatment even book a holiday if you can. Something nice to look forward too😊 best wishes Cathy xxx
