48 weeks and DONE !!!

Hi All,

Just wanted to say that I am done with my 48 weeks of triple treatment. Last shot was 2/15/2013 and last Riba was 2/22/2013.

Maybe it is only in my head, but I do believe I feel better already. Only time will tell about SVR, but treatment is done !!!

I did it and so can you !

I wanted to thank all of you on this forum for being such a great resource and support team.

I especially want to thank the following who were especially encouraging to me when I was still on the fence about treating (I am stage 4,grade 2 - and you all set me me straight !):  HectorSF, Dee1956, nygirl7, oceanblue701, willbb, meakea, pean53, Grandmajane420, babs824, WriteItDown, and merryBe.

I still have a 3cm mass in my liver to deal with (hopefully biopsy will confirm that it is not HCC in early April), but I am so glad I treated no matter what happens next.

If you are delaying treatment, please don't. Go for it. The sooner the better. Don't wait like I did. I am paying a very high price for doing so.

Thank you again to everyone on this forum and good luck to all who are about to treat, or in treatment, and kudo's to all of you who have completed treatment ! Take care.

Best Regards,
Brian

Count me in too
I finished a few days after Naya.
We should all reach SVR around the same time.
Maybe we should plan a party.
I can bring the booze. (just kidding)

Wishing you a quick recovery and SVR.

I am so happy to see that you are finished.  I am sure you are SVR.  Your post is just so nice.  Thank you too.  We all help each other get through this one day at a time.  I am so glad you came back to let us know.
I am very happy to think that I helped you.  You finished almost a year after I did.

Congratulations!! Get your dancing shoes out.
All the best
