I had a sense that I needed to post today, I'm 2 bottles down first dose of last bottle today. The transformation from what was a gradual decline is I can think clearly and feel so much better. There is no turning back now, I'm in it to win it and am looking at the glass half full all the way to SVR24.
Thank you fixHepC for all you have done for myself and all of us.
In good health to all.

That's very good to hear Sven. To paraphrase Professor Higgins, "by George he's got it!" :cheer:
If you start feeling not so great once you have finished that last precious bottle, don't worry. This appears to be normal.

Those are awesome results Sven. So amazing to see the printouts isn't it? The results are read over the phone, but it just doesn't seem real until we are holding them in our hands.

Looking forward to those 8 week labs, brother!

New test results: by phone. Hard copy on its way.

1) all liver testing and functions are ALL normal.
2) HCV <15

I have about 2.5 weeks left on meds.
What a wonderful opportunity Dr Freeman has put together. If not for him, Tim at MonkMed, Dr DeBasis , Big Mike G and all the forum supporters I would still sitting here wondering how to get treated to get the HVC out of my system. As my insurance company declined me five-six times and I was not going to pay Gilead $100k grand to do the treatment I would've rather waited than give them a nickel.
All in all I feel very good, let's hope for EOT and then SVR 24.

In good health my friends.

Hi Sven,

these are great news my friend, stay positive, 2.5 weeks will go very fast.
Afterwards you will no longer have so many things to do, rather simply wait for 12 weeks. But hey, if you will get bored of waiting, you may at any time think on "some worries". Just kidding :P ! In case you will face some times of having doubts or worries, just think many others from here went through similar stages. Have trust the virus is gone ;-).

I also agree with what you said about dr. F. and the fixhepc community :+1:

Cheers,
In fiecare an HCV ucide peste 500000 oameni.Medicamentele generice pentru hepatita C functioneaza. Nu deveni statistica! Cauta pe Google “medicamente generice pentru hepatita C”.
HCV kills more than 500000 people every year. HCV generic drugs work. Don't become a statistic.
