Cured by Harvoni

Hi Everyone,

I don't post a lot on here but wanted to share with everyone the miracles that exist now for treating Hep C.  I saw my doctor on Friday and she let me know that my 12 week post treatment labs after 24 weeks of Harvoni came back with a negative viral load and that I am now cured (12 Week SVR).  This was my 3rd treatment and thanks to God, it worked.  There is hope for all of us.  I have had Hep C for 30+ years and am a Genotype 1A, with a Fibrosis level of 3+.  As a 3+, I still have an increased risk for HCC, so I will continue to get lab work done every 6 months, ultrasounds every 6 months and a CT scan every 18 months.  I encourage everyone to keep on treatment - we are at a place where so many of us now have a chance for a cure!  Blessings and prayers of hope for all of us.
