Two weeks on Vosevi : Normal LFTs
« on: July 18, 2018, 08:30:40 pm »
Pre Vosevi : AST 65, ALT 119

2 weeks on Vosevi :
 
AST : 19 (10-35) ALT : 20 (9-46)

I'll take it.

I have 10 more weeks to go on Vosevi.
I'd love to know what my current VL is.
We will check that on August 5th.

Lukey....how are the side effects on vosevi?

I return to Doc tomorrow morning. Has been 9 days since my blood test. LabCorp experiences “system issues” so I am going to my appointment blind as I have no idea what the results are. During my last visit, Doc said if HC was still detectible, that he would prescribe vosevi. That’s why I’m asking.... Thanks!

Not bad at all. It tends to dehydrate a little so you need to drink plenty of water and perhaps eat more pineapple, papaya, okra, prunes to help with the bowel function.

Vosevi worked for me. I was in a clinical trial for this and worked like charm for me after failing Harvoni on my 24 SVR test. I was crushed to say the least after responding on my first 4 week labs, only to fail on my last. Much more data available these days so hopefully everybody will be cured. Good luck and god bless.

Thank you John. Glad to hear you got the cure.

I recall the day I picked up the blood work results here in town. They sure didn't make me smile. This time I have a much higher chance of getting SVR. I seem to be undetected at week 5 of 12.
