Here is a typical email that came in this morning putting it in more human terms.....
I apologise for taking so long but i wanted results 3 months after completing treatment and good news still no virus detected.
My treatment went very well, first week only one night gastro and vomiting, i like to think that was the night my body decided to tell itself to kill the virus.
The only ongoing noticeable side affect was joint pain but i do have osteoarthritis and i decided not to take any medications or natural health products while on treatment apart from my thyroid medication to give this every chance.
Due to having Hep C for what i believe is over 30 years i thought that my life was fairly normal, but since no virus detected i feel very different. Motivation, no fatigue, happier, people comment on my shiny hair and skin and my memory is great now. I must mention i have not had an ear infection since commencing treatment, i suffered them constantly for many years.
I am back working full time with so much energy, an overall feeling of wellness.
I will always be grateful to fixhepc, a simple thank you does not seem enough to express being given a productive and healthy life.
I love that my doctor can share my story with other hep c patients to encourage them to commence treatment and rid this virus from all those suffering and living with the thought of no cure was ever coming.
