Happy Dance for me.

After 15 years and 9 treatments #8 almost killed but #9 Olysio and Salvaldi finally cured me. I am still pinching myself! I am thrilled beyond words. I have early cirrhosis but I can live with that. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my back.I slated the Dragon! I will still follow you all and check out the post treatment forum!

Hi Rocky congrats!

I have thought only SVR (sustained viral response) at 12 weeks after treatment has ended is considered cured.

My doctor did not test me for viral load when I completed treatment. Her plan is to test at 12 weeks after I finished treatment which will be on 9/3/14 to determine if I am cured.

From what others have posted everyone becomes UND on treatment and all who fail relapse by 12 weeks post treatment.

When did you complete treatment are you 12 weeks post? Anyway undetectable is great to hear no matter what hope you have made it to SVR and are cured.

When you say that you are cured, do you mean that you are SVR at EOT or SVR at EOT + 12?

1746242 tn?1318209702
With this treatment if you SVR for 12 weeks you are considered cured. They will do a VL at 3mos for piece of mind!

I remember you and how you struggled like crazy with so many treatments.
Congrats for finally slaying this beast and getting rid of this horrible virus. I cannot think of anyone more deserving. (Tho we all are so I hope you know what I mean) Seriously Kodos for hanging in there and never giving up and bouncing back from the side effects from each treatment.
