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.
