Harvoni - SVR 1-year :)
« on: August 16, 2016, 03:33:21 pm »
Just received my all-clear for 1 year follow-up from my Harvoni/riba treatment last year. We all expected I would still be "undetected" of course... but nice to hold it in my hand just the same!

Thank you all for helping me celebrate! :)

I am feeling much better, but I am not really home-free yet where my overall health is concerned.

Good to be HepC-free though!!!

Thank you all! Pretty damn good feeling! Who of us ever thought we would see this day when Hep C can be easily eradicated from the body with some pills? Been a long time coming... :)
