Hi! I am 4 years post treatment. I think about everyone from time to time and wonder how you are doing. I still have hip pain & stiffness frequent & sporadic joint pains & feet neuropathy. Otherwise I feel pretty good & am loving life..
I wonder about the triple therapy being a catalyst for other new symptoms I have developed.

Thanks for your message. Wow, you are in the glide path and looks like you're going to be pronouced as 'cured'. Hang in there during this wait. I only have 400 and 600 mg pills ... don't know if he'd prescribe a new dose?
You deserve a big bear hug! I know you aren't finished yet but you can stick out your tongue and taste the finish line! I am so happy for you and can't wait to hear you swallowed that last pill! Will save the big congrats for SVR which will not be far behind. Linda
