03 05 15 Starting Harvoni Today
« on: March 05, 2015, 11:07:05 am »
 Good Morning to All!

I have just taken my first Harvoni tab this morning.  My partner did a drum roll...
I am excited by the possibilities of my life without HCV.

Welcome skycatcher (love your name)!

You've taken an exciting step, and certainly worthy of a drum roll :) 

I've completed 12 wk treatment and in the long wait period moving toward final testing later this month and again in September. 

I hope your path will be smooth and your side effects few.  Unless you have a health issue that prevents it, drinking LOTS of water will resolve most anything and certainly help flush those Hep C demons out of your body.  Even now, drinking more water seems to be key to feeling better.

 Best wishes ....Islandgirl 8)

Thanks Island Girl! -- great name  all I can think of is tropical breezy beaches.  Good choice.
Day 2 everything is just going on along.  Feel a little different but nothing to squawk about.  Mainly I feel exhilarated at the possibility of being HCV free and regaining my energy.
I agree water is so-o-o important -- more so now than ever.  Hydrating is my middle name now. I have been a big fan of H2O for long, long time but I have renewed my love of this pure thing.
Where I live I believe the water has too much sodium in it and a high mineral content but a resourceful fellow put in these water purification stands.  It uses osmosis filtration of the municipal water supply. So the majority of my water is this plus bottled H2O that I go and fill. A really great thing to have here.

I have had HCV probably since 1971 so I am really looking forward to a life where perhaps I will have more energy and maybe some to spare.

Sounds like things are going really well for you.  Has your energy level increased post treatment?
