Went to see the GI specialist at the Gold Coast University Hospital today. Results from EOT blood tests show I am still UND. I know that was to be expected, but still felt a teeny bit of anxiety beforehand.
I was offered a Fibroscan, accepted of course, and it showed a reduction from 6.2 to 4 (kPa). I hadn't expected this to happen so quickly, a big bonus and feeling very happy.
ALT = 16 and AST = 23 (34 and 41 a year ago).
They are monitoring several others on generics and said that SVR24 'has gone out with interferon' and is no longer necessary on DAAs. SVR12 is now considered sufficient.
So I have a pathology request for end of March and then it's all over red rover.
Edit: dear mods, I'm not sure if this post should be here, feel free to move it...
