Fantastic Iris!

What a super bonus!Upper torso is the most common area to find hep related spider vein anginomas (they say) so, sure wish mine (all on thighs) had disappeared, sigh. I can only assume my thigh stuff was not/is not really liver/hep related, some other vascular manifestation.

But how nice for you!! That is a great thing, I think. And so fast too, how bout that! I'm flabbergasted, you'd think it would have taken at least "some" time to see them disappear, but hey, I guess not. Wonderful!biggrinC.

Excellent! They are very common in people with long term HCV and I have heard from others in the past that noticed good improvements in them as well. The body responds so well to treatment. I expect you to notice additional improvements as you progress and recover. Some come quicker than others, but each one is a blessing!

Hey folks, just wondering how many of you all experienced the small red marks on your skin, it's something the doctors usually looked at when I would be in for a visit. They were always pretty prevalent on my upper chest, and shoulders.

Well I'm surprised and pleased to report that these have all but fadded from my skin. Can't really detect them, and the thing that is most shocking is they began to disappear 3 days into my magic Harvoni beans. Wow !, It must be working.biggrin

Did anyone else notice these fade after starting treatment? How soon did you notice?

So excited! Yeah!

Bb, Iris
