Thanks Gaj, Greedfighter, MtGoat. Ya'll are awesome!

Mike G, you were one of the first people I talked to on the way here. Your support, guidance, and experience was instrumental in the ability to push through the fear, and get the treatment I needed. I appreciate you brother!

Me too, Mike!

Just back from a week (or so) goofing off with my wife in Texas, and now catching up with all of the news and posts.

Will post pics. Good to be back!

Hi Fitz,

welcome back :).
I guess you have by now just a couple of days till EOT, right? :+1:

Cheers,

Thanks RHF. Yesterday was my last dose of generic Sof/Led obtained through the REDEMPTION 3 Trial. 6 weeks since VL <15, and 4 weeks since UND.

Today is EOT for me, and it feels a bit surreal not to have opened the bottle of MYHEP LIVR -- Generic 'Harvoni' Sofosbuvir 400mg, Ledispavir 90mg produced under Gilead license in India by Natco for Mylan. The medicine bottles are now quite empty, there is no medicine left. I have taken the entire 12 week course of treatment. I'm done.

To recap - after a year of waiting to see a specialist, and then being denied Harvoni by my insurance company, I found Mike Galbraith, and Dr. James, had a consultation with Dr. Freeman of GP2U Telehealth in Hobart Tasmania AUS, and then enrolled in the REDEMPTION 3 Trials, immediately receiving a consultation with Dr. Debasis of Monkmed (India), and an email that my medication had shipped from India.

Less than three weeks later, I had the lifesaving medication - which my insurance company had refused to pay for - in my hand. And for the first time in decades, I had real hope, and a real shot at a cure!

If anyone is reading this and wants to understand exactly how this unfolded - this entire thread is dedicated to journaling that journey. Start with the first post on this thread and just keep reading. Its all there.

There are still some big milestones ahead. SVR 4, SVR 12, and god willing SVR 24. If I am one of the ~96% of patients who is completely cured, those results will be posted as they become available. If I am not, I know that there are affordable options to re-treat, and whether or not I reach SVR this time - I am absolutely confident that I WILL.

Let me tell you, that is an AMAZING sense of empowerment, and the Fix Hep C community has made that empowerment possible. I am grateful beyond words.

Hey fitz! You are almost exactly 1 month behind me. I'm going in for svr 4 this week, but won't see my specialist til the week of the 19th. So, we'll go over blood test results together during that appointment. I am confident that the generic Harvoni I finished taking 4 weeks ago tomorrow, have done their work as I am feeling exceptionally well. I have greatly appreciated your journal and look foreword to seeing your svr results. Thanks for today's run down.
Best to you n' yours,

Hey Matt! Cant wait to see those SVR 4 results! Fingers crossed for you, and prayers out buddy! . :+1:

Following is a vacation photo of the most phenominal guitarist I've ever seen. An Aussie I believe. The guy in the American flag jacket to her right was pretty good too. Together they put on a hell of show!

Don't the Pixies have a song about Debasis? :silly:

Yeah I do, and so do you mate! So stoked for you!!!

The guitarist is Orianthi. Hadn't heard of her until showing up at concert which was very much a last minute thing. I'm not a metal fan (wife is), but really enjoyed Oritanthi's guitar work. The woman is simply incredibly gifted, and was really the best part of then entire show for me. Think Hendrix, Prince, Clapton - and then some.

Here's a very sweet acoustic piece from her. Plenty of metal stuff on youtube too.



OK Beaches. Post the pixies song:)

I was kidding, re the song about Debasis.
I actually posted it on the disco fever page.
The song is called Debaser... wha hey it's close

Thanks for posting that clip. A good friend said a few months ago I should check out Orianthi when she's in Oz, I think I will - in between The Pixies and PJ Harvey (yes!!!!!)
