 ?? OK so 7.16.15 was final dose of Viekira Pak & Ribavirin / <15 copies hcv= undetectable! So this is what the $84,000.00 cure is about. FRONT TO BACK  note
AFTER THIS IS A HIGH-RISK MEDICATION
Terrible pain in left foot
My nights are mostly sleepless! Last night I fell asleep only to be awoke by my right arm spasm so bad it almost KO'd me.  So I sat up, went to the can, ie: increasing since tx.  This along with depression and no energy is the pitz. Midway through tx energy increased :). Now post tx I'm stuck in the mud once again. BUT Dragon free...sigh! Finally! Feel Much less tightness in the spleen area and liver area!
I'm a skinny guy but b4 tx I had trouble bending over.
Have been reading about the half life of ribavirin and viekira seems that ribavirin's half life is 12 days where Viekira is <8 days
So I guess I'll wait it out ??? Wot else is there?
That's seems to be all I do is gripe and fall deeper into this abyss of depression and sleeplessness!
Ultimately! goal has been achieved

Sorry for the negative post.  It seems to be my general mood lately.  Good news is all my liver functions are normal or good my platelets are 90 up from my last.
Am still having post viekira pak, ribavirin TX symptoms that will diminish eventually.  I am very LUCKY! Some people I knew that contracted this disease are not among the living to date as I contracted this disease from drug usage many years ago.
Praise God :)
