Having now reached the end of my 12 week Sof/Vel treatment, and received my EOT 12 week blood test results showing that I am HVC RNA - NOT DETECTED, I urge you to join me if you remain untreated.
This is my shout-out to all the Type 2 folk. We type 2ers get told things like "don't worry, no need to treat you, it's only type 2, and so benign compared with types1 & 3". But, it is nasty knowing all that virus is chugging around your body, subverting your liver and other body systems. Another thing I have felt diminished by, is not being able to be an organ or blood donor.
Type 2 is relatively uncommon in most populations, and easy to treat. Please go ahead and use all of the resources on this site to fix hep c now. Help yourself, then you can help others!
G2, infected maybe in 1971?
Diagnosed HVnon-A non-B 1980s, revised to HVC 1990's.

Thank-yous to my doctor for the script, to Jan at FixHepC for wrangling, and to Dr Freeman for courage.
