When you say 12 week lab, if you are referring to the lab drawn 12 weeks AFTER end of treatment, and it is Undetectable, then you have a 99.7% chance at attaining SVR. Those are excellent odds.

You have joined a few others here, UND at 12 weeks post end of treatment, and we are all waiting patiently for the 24 week post end of treatment labs. But we all have a 99.7% chance at SVR because we were UND at 12 weeks post end of treatment.

Let me get the link so you can see what I am talking about.

Read the response to the first question. You will see that if UND at 12 weeks post end of treatment, we have 99.7% chance for SVR.

Congratulations!
