I just had my 6 months testing after my 12 weeks on medication. I am still completely clear and undetectable. Isn't it considered cured if you've made it 6 months undetected after treatment?

I heard a good analogy the other day from a UK doctor- he tells his SVR patients, that you are now completely cured, don't get confused in the future if you are tested and it shows antibodies- those are "just a stamp in your passport- they show where you have been in the past, not where you are now"
Genotype 3 30 years, 2x treatment interferon/ribavirin non responder. Cirrhosis 17 years. Fibroscan, decompensating, 40 down to 22 by 29/3/16- now down to 6.5, normal, no cirrhosis. Started Buyers Club Sof/Dac 14 Nov 15. SVR 12 29/0716
