Hey Edge, best of luck to ya. I had some trouble with headaches the first couple weeks, but forum friends convinced me to drink more water. That did the trick. It can be hard to remember if you don't feel thirsty.
Cheers

I'm pleased to hear that things have settled down a bit for you Edge. Yes - fingers and toes are crossed for you. I'll ditto the advice about keeping hydrated with water. Every so often I get a massive headache on my current treatment and I can always trace it back to not drinking enough water during the day.

Greetings friends. What a long wait it has been to get my 4 week bloods back. Can confirm I am now UND!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: Thank you to everyone who has shown their support so far - it has meant a lot, and to Dr Freeman for providing access to this fantastic trial.

Just 19 more weeks to go until EOT!!

Is the consensus still to do 24 weeks if relapsed after 48 weeks of peg interferon/Ribavirin? When I initially spoke to Dr Devsam, he mentioned that it might be possible to only do 12 weeks if I was UND after 4. I've got the pills though, so for the sake of an extra 3 months I might as well take them? Thoughts?

Hi Edge,

Congratulations on being undetected at 4 weeks. :cheer: That must give you a feeling of confidence.

I ran your information through the SVR calculator fixhepc.com/getting-treated/svr-calculator.html and it does recommend 24 weeks and suggests a 99% probability of SVR for 24 weeks against 94% for 12 weeks. BUT I'm not a doctor and I also don't know what other factors you may have discussed with Dr Devsam. I think if I was in your situation I would finish the full course to give myself the very best chance unless I experienced strong side effects in which case I would discuss the options further with the doctor.

Hah! Hieu beat me to it, think I need another cup of coffee this morning. :lol:

Hi Edge,
Great to see the big UND at 4 weeks. Others have provided good advice about the calculator and the need to discuss treatment lengths with your doctor. My personal view is that if you have the pills and are managing any side effects I would finish the course. #flower

Hi all, I have not written a post before but have found reading everyone else's experiences so helpful. I live in NZ and am Hep C gen 3, which recently discovered I had managed to get over 30 years ago. For a long time I have not felt well so was actually kind of relieved to discover the cause of all my health problems (itchy skin, tiredness etc). I did not hesitate to contact Dr Freeman after I researched my options. The doctors I have dealt with here in NZ were very supportive. My specialist from Auckland said they would take it if they had hep c - can't get better recommendation than that!
Anyway, am now nearly 2 months into Sofosbuvir and Daclatasvir combination and am feeling fantastic. :+1: Will admit though had a couple of crap weeks to start with and did sleep a few days away but now have energy levels that I had forgotten existed haha. First bloods have just come back but haven't talk to doctor yet to get full picture - from what I can see looks heaps better. I feel very blessed that this cure has become available just when I was diagnosed because past treatments do not sound that great! All the best to everyone on this journey #flower
