Just took my last Harvoni pill
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:03:59 am »
Just finished up 12 weeks of Harvoni treatment.  :)

All my blood tests over the last 8 weeks, my viral load has been "undetectable"...  ;D

I know I have to wait a couple of months for my viral load to remain undetectable to claim to be totally cured... But at this time the odds do favor my being 'cured'.  :) :D ;D

I never really had any negative side effects from the Harvoni treatment, other than extreme fatigue. And to be honest, I mostly blame the fatigue on some other health issues I have.

I do have to say that the Harvoni, so far, has been a true miracle drug for me.
It was so very expensive, time consuming and at times very very frustrating to get this drug... But getting rid of this despicable parasite virus was worth every bit of it.

Thanks again to all those great folks on this forum who help out... your all wonderful... Thank you so much.
