Well, that's me done and dusted now!
And just in time for Xmas!
The next blood test I'm planning to have in 3 weeks time and then 12 weeks would be the final test after which I will be discharged from the clinic.
Well done Nadia!,
I think you were the first woman in the UK to start taking those generics, as far as I know.
I came across your story back in summer on the UK hcv forum & reading your journey have help me to start looking seriously into the generic tx myself & now a few months later am on tx as well.
So thanks for being a courageous & inspirational woman, Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Jolie,
I think you are right about being the first woman in the UK. I'm glad that my story encouraged other people to take this route and take control of their health and future without relying on NHS and outdated interferon which may or may not cure you but for sure will make you ill for the rest of your life.
I feel great today! So happy and festive!
I must admit in the last couple of weeks I found it hard to cope with my busy schedule and was looking forward to the end of the treatment and some rest over the bank holidays. But after a course of massage and a couple of lazy days I feel better than ever!
