I am f3/f4.I am into wk 11 of Sof Dac Riba.I have elected to add another 12wks of sof dac(if it arrives in time from the Buyers Club) and another 6 wks of Riba,(which is when my Riba supply runs out,I don't want to have to buy any more,and I fall a couple of wks short of it being on the PBS).
So that will make a total of 24wks of sof dac and 18wks of riba.
According to the EASL guidelines this is overkill.According to the AASLD guidelines its what is required.From the experts I get a mishmash of opinions.I want to be in the 95% plus success cohort.The Riba hasn't been kind at times,but it hasn't clipped my wings at all.My partner often asks when is she going to get the real Miko back.
What has been my biggest encouragement is a guy up the street that is 10yrs younger than me and who has Parkinsons Disease.I often see him painfully shuffling down to the shop.I look at his agony and think “what the hell have I got to winge about,at least I have a good chance of a cure,He has none.”
It is amazing how quickly time passes.It's so little to put up with for so much to gain.
Go for the max Darbara and cut down your risk of failure to the minimum,and don't even contemplate failure..
