Last week I was notified of my successful SVR 12.
Unless my doc advises it I won't be looking for SVR 24.
After seeing this result, once the massive grin had faded from my face, i was surprised to find myself quite overwhelmed
Thinking about it, it's no surprise really. Its been a massive 12 months from finding out that generics were available and someone (Greg Jeffreys) had actually managed to get his hands on some and get cured, to finding out about fixhepto being persuaded to wait for the PBS to starting treatment, finishing treatment and getting the end result and finally being free of this accursed gift that keeps on giving.
This in itself was a huge emotional roller-coaster,but in the meantime you become a different person. Is this the real you? What is the real you?
Not to mention any other stuff that has happened along the way.
Don't know about anyone else but I would really love to take the rest of the year off, lie under a tree next to the ocean and take it all in (I know my boss isn't reading this
) but this is not a practical option
It's going take some adjustment but in the meantime life goes on. Same but better.
Has anyone else felt the same way?
To people that have recently relapsed, I don't mean to be insensitive. Research is progressing very quickly and it won't be long until you are also experiencing this privileged problem
