I finished treatment for G4 with Harvoni in 11/16. I had Ultrasounds in 2013, 2015 and 2018. They were fine. Now my doctor wants to order another. He says there are no guidelines that say that I am in the clear. I was F0-1 before treatment. I just saw this article posted yesterday in Greg Jefferys ‎ Hepatitis C Treatment Cure and Community Facebook group. I don't want to spend the time or co-pay on another Ultrasound but perhaps I should go along with my doctor's request.
