Congrats FretBasher!! And welcome to the forums. Yes, Harvoni truly is a miracle! It cured me after 45 years of Hep C. Be sure to take it right to the end, even though you have already turned undetected. Gotta get every last virion out of your body.

best,
kim :)

WTG! Your story sounds a lot like mine. I'll be having my 8 week blood draw next Friday; the virus was undetected at two weeks. Hope it stays that way, and that yours does too. I'm sure liking the monthly blood draws now instead of the two-week ones.

Yeah, there are some mild side effects, but as you say, nothing like Int/Riba, where I was basically sick in bed for a year. I managed to go to work, usually, but that was about it - there was no joy that year.

Amazing  8)
