This is great news Nicole! It doesn't really matter where you started - just where you are now.

Wow Nicole,

That is great news.  Congrats!  With that kind of drop in 2 weeks, your chance of cure if you complete treatment is 95%+.  Will they do another set of labs at 4 weeks?  Here's to the happiest of New Year's!  -jack

Thanks everybody!

Yes Jack they will do 4 week. I'm so happy to see how well and fast it works. I believe it's 97% cure rate overall and many people getting SVR 12 even when they are still not UD at 4 weeks. But I'm so positive I'm going to get this thing gone, and this test only gave me more resolve.

way to go Nicole!   

happy to hear your good news!


that's where I was at 4 weeks so you'll prob. be undetected at 4 which they say is the best way to go.   I wasn't undetected until week 6 on Harvoni, so you're rockin it!

Everyone keeps reminding everyone it's the SVR12 or SVR24 that really matters......and then staying virus free of course.
 I like to know along the way.   Some choose not to know until the very end.   either way....we're so blessed to have harvoni.
Jill
