Hey 5-1-2018,

Congrats on the family plan here. Harvoni for everyone! Nice your partner has his cure under his belt 4 months now, and that you have others around you to help you feel confident in you start. Your 8 weeks will probably feel BOTH long and short. Nice you know the ropes already, that always helps. Do keep us posted on how your are feeling, we will want to know. Like your partner, good you have your other best freind (water) close to you. heehee

May Day! (Like STL) a lovely start to your new spring. smile C.

Hi 5-1-18,

Good Luck - I Started treatment on the same day, been infected similar time, different treatment. I'm on Epclusa for 12 weeks. Day 10 today, doing well, the odd funny little feeling, but all in all feeling good. Very Grateful and so looking forward to being free after all these years.

All the best to you

Hello 5118,

Glad to meet and welcome you aboard the Harvoni Train! We have a section of the forum we have named such, feel free to add your two cents there, too.

You’re on a very effective treatment protocol, as your husband is already aware. I‘m confident you will also do well. 8 weeks sure beats the 28 weeks I went through. Treatment has really changed and improved, thank goodness! Please pass on my congratulations to your hubby on his great achievement! Another one bites the dust!!

Keep us in the loop as you progress. If you have any questions or advice for others along your journey, please let us know. Concentrate on a one gallon intake of water each day and you’ll stay ahead of the side effects. Good luck!

so, my user name is the date I took my first pill biggrin

so far so good and i'm happy to find this forum.

I will add more as the days go by, for now i'm happy to be here to blog my journey. I am so happy I got on the treatment train after 35 yrs carrying the C.

low viral load 3mil., no other tx besides a short trial of interferon that happily they took me off of after a few short weeks. moderate liver fibrosis. 66yrs. .been taking care of my liver since I was 34 since I knew I had a chronic liver disease.

prescribed 8 weeks. I love the newer protocols. my friend got svr with 8 weeks so I am confident it will work for me too.

happily married 25yrs. , hubby just did 12 hard weeks on Harvi and is svr 4 mo. after tx.... we are the harvi family now and have the same doctor.

water is my new best friend :D

ok friends. I will add more as I am inspired. thanks for being here, i'm already enjoying reading
