DONE AND DUSTED 84 PILLS !
« on: March 06, 2016, 04:52:17 am »
So its over 3 days back
BP seems back to normal, the dizzines and edema less but its there.
Waiting for EOT blood reports.
Off on Holiday for Easter.
I feel fine kind of miss that 6.30 pm Harvoni pill time :)
Sort of fearful if all those old troubles like liver pain, bloating, fatigue....... will be back.
Well one day at a time.
Hoping for the best for myself and the rest of the gang here.
But I do think about is the long term effects of these DAAs there is not too much info around.
Well the rides been easy for me just 2 weeks of initial sides and the odd bit here and there.
More later ! ;)

I found I felt a little better every day. Then at some point I stopped thinking about it and just started living it. It became the new normal.

One day at a time is all you can do. Good luck!

Bedt wishes on your recovery. It has been 14 months since finishing S/O 12 week tx. Took me a long time to lose the weight gained during tx, but did it! BP and heart rate went back down, but still have a few lingering issues. Maybe due to age. I understand the concerns of long term effects, try not to worry cause one day free of hepc is one more day of a better life. Be well all.. Sunrise

Congratulations, Jakas! Does your doctor actually test again 4 weeks after EOT, as Philadelphia's did? Mine waited until 12 weeks after. Now you get to look forward to your Fibroscan score falling -- not sure how long your doctor will wait to test that; my Fibroscan is scheduled for 9 months after EOT.

No mine did EOT, then 12 weeks post. He said he'd do 4 weeks if I wanted, but my EOT was actually 2 weeks post EOT by the time I got to the hospital pathology department (I live 400km from my treating hospital). By that time we figured it gave a pretty good indicator of how things were going, so we didn't bother with 4 weeks post. We just did 12 weeks. If that makes any sense at all! lol

I think he will test  6, 12 and 24 wks. I am off to Asia will do my 4 wk there costs just $ 50 and fibroscan costs $ 9 :D so we will see.
I do have some hope now that I will clear this as 4wk and 12 wk in treatment is UND, also my viral load was 900000 for starters and no previous therapy BUT ONE NEVER KNOWS with this Hepc as I am F3/F4
Anyway hoping to join the SVR club ;)
