I got a great parcel in the mail at the end of last week and started treatment on the weekend. Feeling absolutely fine apart from a weird chemical smell coming out of my body - will keep you posted on who the side effects and test outcomes.
Great news about the PBS listing - so many people are waiting and dying for these drugs - I couldnt be more chuffed about it.

I don't really understand the results very well .... (lol)!
The log figure means the first number times ten by the number of times the little number beside the ten shows. So in your case 6.4 multiplied by ten, five times or 6.4 x 10 x 10 x 10 x10 x10 = 640,000 In other words, your pretreatment test was 640,000.
I suspect your new result is probably less than 15, maybe shown as <15 just because 15 is a common cutoff point for a lot of these tests. Whichever it is, that's a good result for F3-4 at 4 weeks.
