Hello everyone. I'm new to these forums and learning how to navigate in here.
I learned I had hepc in 2001,not sure when I contracted, but I had gotten clean and sober 3/23/2001,found out through routine blood work with elevated enzymes. Viral loan is around 145,000 genotype 1a. Today I started Harvoni and so far so good. 3 hours into day 1. I'll read through some posts and it gives me great hope that I too can have similar results!

Stevelthomas: I have not been feeling well from a sore throats and
what seems to be a head cold,not much sleep last night either.
I took the 1st pill this morning, nothing to report that's
any different, other than the positive energy I am
focusing on . I'll post up more as the treatment
progresses forward.

Blood work pre Harvoni 4/27/2017

Day 2, I'm sick from what I learned was a sinus infection from last week, otherwise
no issues. My question to the those of who have had the virus cleared:
Can you FEEL the difference knowing the virus is gone?
Are you noticing more energy or ?

Thanks

I can - that's for sure!
... Mind you - I was really unwell with Hep C - and for a long time - so the change was profound for me! ...

The change doesn't seem so dramatic for those who are asymptomatic - but, you know - your health is improving, and that's gotta be a good thing!

... Many people seem to become aware [in a way they hadn't necessarily been aware before] that they've been dragging a dead weight around with them for years.

Thanks Andrew! Congratulations!!!!  I'm super pumped,
even though I'm so called, asymptomatic, I've always
wondered if my energy should have been better,especially when I became
Clean and sober.

Yes ... that's a real indication of so-called asymptomatic Hep C.

Your energy should be improving - even now - but there is often a deeper recovery going on (because of long-term changes in your metabolism etc.) that may take a while to become noticeable.

... It's all good, though!

Best of luck with your Tx!
