I'm cured!
« on: May 27, 2016, 02:02:12 pm »

I'm cured!

Diagnosed Hepc positive in Nov 2014.  HCV count measured 225,800 in March 2015.   METAVIR F0-F1. GT2.  I'm a 55 year old male. 

Started Treatment 8/1/15 - - TX was for 12 weeks of Solvadi & Moderiba (Ribavirin).

Finished 12 wk treatment and a 6 month follow-up -- all clear!

I had no discernable side effects during treatment.   Most difficult thing was keeping a positive attitude each day and not worry about the future.
