Just a short report after seeing the hep dr, my tests are good, blood almost normal, even seems to be a little less fibrosis (I have stopped all alcohol). I complained about my joints & so on, and what if I got the magic pill myself? Hors Parcours, she isn't allowed to follow me, although she did put viral charge vhc on the bottom of the next blood test (prescription dated for early july), also a scan. We exchanged a bit, the sort of price, how secure the source, I'm the first one to ask her about it, though she's heard stuff in the staff room. I asked if there was any danger, and the hep B is quite clearly Not a problem at all, wasn't even mentioned, what she actually said was: if I have an EMG and it can be shown that my aches&pains or neuropathy is due to the hvc, she would make the demand for harvoni, in 6 months time, herself. Also that if somehow magically I was virus-free during that time, I would still get routine follow-up afterwards.
Well to fill in the time while I'm saving up my pennies, it's back to the GP for me, get a letter for an EMG. If it shows that thing is due to hvc, I don't think I shall wait at all.
Bye for now, thank you all for being there,
