Well finishing up my 24 weeks with Eplusa and Riba 3 weeks to go. Was clear first 4th week blood test and 12 week blood test despite cirrhosis and a  Q80K polymorphism
resistance to NS5A and NS5B inhibitors. Had to fight hard for insurance to pay for the second round I was met with several denials.

I've been hitting the gym for 6 days a week for 4 years and eat a clean diet which I contribute to only minor sides...... restless sleep patterns and fatigue which was a constant battle with my workout regime but can be done with determination. Hoping for the best  this time around.
