I'm wondering how many of us have tested negative at 4 weeks only to have a positive test later in treatment or after it's over?
My doc said it's my decision to go the full 12 weeks or stop at 8. I was originally supposed to do 12. I've had such a tough time with my pancreas issues which seem much worse with the Harvoni I have to just go day by day and tell myself that this too shall pass. Almost all of my other sides are gone or minimal. Still not sleeping too well, but I can handle that. No headaches, the anxiety is gone, aches and pains are still present but what the hell, I'm old. So.....anyone?

Check out the 4 week, 12 week post Harvoni treatment thread. Someone was keeping track in there I think.

I've been following the results and as far as I know this has only happened to one person who was neg at w4 and then barely detected at <15 at w13. Never came back to tell the result of later tests.
