I see you had HBV back in the 70s. This won't prevent treatment but may require additional monitoring during treatment if your HBV was suppressed rather than cleared. So you should ensure you and your prescribing doctor know your current HBV antibody/antigen status prior to starting treatment. Here is a link to some previous discussions of this topic including comments from Dr Freeman.

Me too Edna, I had HVB in the 1970's. Somewhere along the way though my body spontaneously cleared that virus, luckily for me. That left me with loads of HVB antibodies, but no detectable antigen. But I still had the HVC, millions of them, until I commenced the HVC treatment that I accessed through this site earlier this year.
The folks on this site are really helpful. I reached the end of my treatment without incident, and swallowed my last DAA pill. My new blood test results show I am now free of the HVC. Whoopee!
Welcome Edna. It is so good you found this site. As the TV ad goes "come on in, the water is fine".
G2, infected maybe in 1971?
Diagnosed HVnon-A non-B 1980s, revised to HVC 1990's.
Treatment naive. Fibroscan & bloods all normal ranges.
Viral load 7million,
began Redemption trial4, 12-week generic Sof/Vel (Incepta) 2017. Week 4 UND, Week 12UND, SVR24
Thank-yous to my doctor for the script, to Jan at FixHepC for wrangling, and to Dr Freeman for courage.
Kia kaha e hoa ma!
