Been trying to write this for hours without getting anywhere.....so here goes.
22 months ago I discovered FixHepC and was able to source generic DAAs to hopefully cure the HCV I had carried around for two thirds of my life, so I commenced a 24 week treatment due to cirrhosis and previous relapse. Unfortunately, as some will be aware, I was one of the small percentage that relapse post treatment. But thankfully the medications had reduced the virus to undetectable levels while using them which gave my liver a period of respite and significantly improved my physical and emotional health and resolved a lot of symptoms that I always thought due to age, etc.
Knowing that wouldn't last without SVR, at the start of this year I commenced my latest retreatment although I couldn't bring myself to blog this here, possibly out fear of yet another relapse? or just silly superstition? Anyway it has been a long and somewhat delayed journey for me but today as I quietly held my breath my specialist informed me that my SVR12 results were.
What a wonderful feeling of calm........and such elation at the same time!
A huge thank you to Dr Freeman and the rest of the FixHepC team not only for assisting me but also for their vision, care and most importantly for taking action to enable people around the world to access affordable HCV treatment. This one's for you.
