Good morning from here Split
I'm sorry to read your news and hope you can access the Vel asap, how very frustrating, and I bet other emotions too. With these new options the research sounds promising and this is the right place to be, FHC; so there's two good things to start with.
Wishing you a prompt and successful treatment for your next go at this

Very sorry to read this SplitD,
It must be a hard one.
As Ariel says, thankfully you're in the right place to get your next plan of attack organised.
I expect you're feeling down, but try to give yourself some rest, mentally as well as physically, eat well etc and try not to dwell on it if you can? I guess I'm saying be kind to yourself. Then it's get tough again for round 2.
I would think a longer treatment next time? I have had a longer treatment and it's doable.
I'm just sorry you had this unexpected extention of treatment and wish you are the very best for the next round.
No doubt Dr F is giving you the best advise.
Take care mate.

Thank-you Tim, Dr Debasis @ MonkMed & Dr Freeman @ Fix HepC
the above says it all about this virus. We appear to share the same genotype and now 12 week post treatment outcome.
I am ever hopeful and optimistic and I guess lucky that accessing medications has been available to me in Aust. where people in the US may have problems doing so.
Although this try has not ended up SVR, I expect your options here are pretty good.

Hi Splitdog. I am just catching up and am really sorry to hear your news. I'm so thankful there are more options for you so keep fighting until you beat this frigging thing.
