Hello and good luck to all currently on treatment, including myself!
My burning question is treatment length (non-cirrhotic)- 12 weeks or more on Daklinza/Sovaldi? I can't seem to find trial results that show different treatment time-frame results. Ie. 16 weeks, 24 weeks as alternatives. Anyone have an idea?
It would be great for those retreating for Genotype 3 to mention their new drug combination and length too, please.
Hi AK123, I was advised by Dr Freeman to extend my 12 weeks tx to 16 or 18 weeks as results suggested better outcomes. This was back in April. So I did 16 wks and have just reached svr 24. I had no cirrhosis and fibroscan score of 2. Hope this helps. Wilko

Thank you LondonGirl and others for your kind sharing of advice and personal treatment stories. I have had an informative reply from Dr Freeman (posted under 'Sovaldi/Daklinza-side-effects and treatment duration'), which has been a marvellous help as well. All the best!
Thanks MG. Having tried twice with Dac combos I've decided to look for a three way to really nail it this time. Currently doing something I've had plenty of previous practice at .......waiting! There are some good options coming through for relapsed GT3s but time seems to drag.

For me (probably life-long GT3), Sof+Dac worked like a dream. Please see my signature.
