I am scheduled for Oct 12 for my SRV12 blood test and that is one long wait. This one is the test that counts so a little nervous about it. Harvoni 12 weeks and not detected @ 4 weeks , 8 weeks and 12 weeks. Side effects are starting to subside , energy levels are staying at post treatment.

Finally got the results back 7 months post treatment and it's "HCV RNA target not detected" but the explanation in the comments says that it is equivalent to "<15 IU/mL" but that Health Ontario will be using the new nomenclature from 2019 on.

It's a little mind blowing that such a physically and psychologically damaging disease is not regularly screened for. I had to reach out across the ocean to find someone that cares. Thank you Dr James and the great bunch of people on this site for really giving a damn about people with nowhere else to turn to , God bless.

Congratulations SHarmon, that's fantastic #woohoo! Being <15 IU/mL 6 months post treatment definitely means that you're cured, please see this post by Dr James fixhepc.com/forum/end-of-treatment-eot/1...u-ml-what.html#24954

At 7 months post treatment the <15 means ZERO - the virus has now had 6 clear months to grow back in a DAA drug free environment. It has not grown back because.... it is gone, and gone for good.

#magic
YMMV
