Hi Bob V, great news, happy for you.  Tomorrow will be 8 wks for me and looking forward to my blood work.  I was still detected at 4 wks (vl 21) so your results are very encouraging.  Thanks for sharing.

motor: good luck with your treatment.

Thanks everyone. I was thinking of skipping EOT labs but I guess I'll see what the doc want to do. As we all know the real deal is SVR12.
