I am new to forum and thankful to have the option of reaching out to people who truly understand.  I was diagnosed back in 1995 and tried Interferon/Ribaviron with no results.  Just horrible side effects.  I am currently on week 12 of Harvoni and have side effects but not as horrible as previous treatment...Terrible headaches and fatigue.
Tomorrow I find out results of viral load as of now.
I wish everyone good luck and remain positive if you can.

Good luck tomorrow and I hope it will be joyous, happy and great news (it should be). :)
